Looks Halmahera but tough to say from the angle. Post photos from directly above and of the belly.

Halmahera. If you're unfamiliar with the species, please do your research. They are the least forgiving when it comes to mistakes and have posed as a challenge for some to keep. Probably the most "advanced" species.

Thank you so much for identifying! I went out and bought a humidifier to keep humidity up since i could only keep it in the high 70's by hand misting.
