Unidentified Lizard

I took this picture over the summer in central Mexico. I’ve been trying to identify the lizard using a bunch of different field guides but I can’t seem to find the species. The lizard is very frightened and almost immobile. It has small limbs and a golden-orange belly. It also has really nice eyes. I tried to lift it with a leaf but it slid into a hole in the ground.
