Those look like Texas horned lizards. As far as caring for them, a hot desert or semi-desert envirnment in your tank is ideal for these lizards. Food however is difficult to obtain since these lizards eat mainly ants. I would talk with a herp expert that has these and ask about them particularly about they’re diet.

Feed harvester ants you know those big red ants just fined an red ant nest and collect some the amount they eat will determined how healthy they are an adult HL can eat up to 300 ants a day my advise to you is worry about keeping them alive before you try to figure out exactly witch kind of HL YOU have i only say this because they are among the hardest to keep alive..... SAND HEAT LAMP florescent uv light 10.0 for desert species..... if you could tell me were they were found i could probably help you identify them ....good luck
