New BTS Owner!! :D

So i just recently bought my lil girl Squash at a recent Reptile Expo. Before i did a lot of research and made sure i knew what i was doing but i still have a few questions. First i’m about 95% sure shes an indonesian but i dont know which type of indonesian since i was dumb and forgot to ask. I however do know she was captive bred born. Shes currently in a 40 gallon tank and when i put her in she explored every part but after that day she went into hiding and or burrowed down since i know they’re big on burrowing ( shes been burrowed or hiding for 3 days). Should i be concerned if i dont see her for a while or just leave her be and offer her food to entice her to come out. Also my hot side is currently 95 F and cool side a solid 70 and she is on an eco earth/reptibark mix. Thank you guys and im glad to be apart of the bts family :D.

Appears Irian Jaya, maybe a few more pics? The chances of an Indonesian purchased at an expo being cbb is slim to none. Your temps are ok, I'd go just a bit higher and the humidity needs to be at the very least 60 percent. I'd just let her settle in, leave food and water for her and observe. Adorable little one, best of luck and welcome!

Thank you! I will definitely raise the temperatures and make sure humidity is 60%! Once she comes out i will take more pictures but for now i'll just leave her be and when she comes out she comes out i don't want her to be stressed!

Yes that's an Irian Jaya. Not often you find these guys CBB, especially at an expo. Possible but I'd be skeptical.
