Hi,

Please see attached photo of our new BTS. Would really appreciate some advice on what species this is. We were told Indonesian but still a bit undecided. We want to be sure so that we can get humidity/diet right. Many thanks

Can you get a picture from directly over top of it and also a side. I think it is a Merauke or Halmahera, but I can't say for sure unless I get some better shots. Thanks

Tail that darkens towards the tip leans me a bit more towards Halmahera Indonesian, but would love to see the belly…

Thanks for the replies, I will try and get better photos, he is a bit shy at the moment so may take a little time. We only got him last Wednesday so we are waiting a week to settle before we try. Bit nervous as not sure how used to being handled he is
