ok so identifying carpets under one year old is really hard but im guessing yours is about a year so i think were good. immediately you should recognize that distinct snub nose that is characteristic of a coastal. however pure coastals have large flat square rostral scales. yours does not so we know its a mix. Irian jaya head pattern seems to be dominant over coastal and yours is distincly coastal so im gonna rule that out. jungles have narrower more pointed and angular rostral scales yours does not have this but seems to have a combination of coastal and jungle characteristics, and there is something to be said for that yellow color too! It is unlikey that it is a mix of something unusual like bredli, spilotes or jag because that would be evident in the color and pattern. Its a pretty safe bet you have a jungle coastal mix. This is a natural integrade and these individuals tend to be very hardy. hope this helps
