Need a clearer full body pic to help identify. Looks like an Indonesian or a meruake. Tough to tell at that angle. Highly doubt it was captive bred. Indonesians and meruakes are rarely captive bred. Also a ton of imported Indonesians are all over the place now being sold as captive bred. Also I would change the bedding immediately. They need high humidity to thrive. Around 80%. Cypress mulch and top soil are good choices.

Hi there i will be able to get a clearer picture later on today, but that picture was just when Indie arrived and i have her on a mix of that an coco fiber and the humidity lies between 70 and 80% all the time. :D That is one thing i make sure is at the right place.
Also it was 100% captive bred as it is from a reputable breeder. :)
