Is it legal to own a saharan uromastyx lizard in Eugene, Oregon, United States?

That's pretty much all I want to know. It's "Uromastyx Geyri", common in the pet trade, and I want one. Just need to know if it's legal because each city has it's own laws on this stuff, let alone county and state.

    This is what I found when I looked up prohibited species in Oregon. I did not see any Uromastyx species listed. I also could not find information about what the city of Eugene allows as far as pet reptiles but based on what I saw in ads, it seems that there are people in Eugene who have them. If you are worried, you may have to go down to city hall and ask. But here's a copy/paste from the Oregon Department of Fish and Game:
