Identifying Indonesian Lizards - green lizard with dark markings

Identifying Indonesian Lizards?My cat keeps catching these lizards from a local park and insists on me to keep them, so I did. But I do wonder what species/category do they fall into. I live in West Java, Indonesia, precisely in Depok. These are common lizards here and they often climb on top of trees. They have long tails, each longer than their own body. Two of them are brown, but one has a tint of green that stops at the tail. The brown ones has 2 stripes on their back. The green one has a little, but noticeable crest along the body and the head. I'm not sure if they're even the same species.
