A. avic morph#6?
I know it's extremely unlikely to get a 100% positive ID with Avics, but I have to at least try to figure him out. He's a big, beautiful boy and I'd hate to see him go to waste. I'll add more pics in a bit
@Arachnophoric @The Grym Reaper , I'm glad to hear that there's a general consensus so far. I'd love to give this guy a chance at finding a lady.

Here's some additional pics of the same guy:

Ok, didn't see this post yet. MM Avicularia avicularia variants loose the color on the abdomen so that explains the lack of colored gaurd setae. Judging by the leg setae it does match m#6, do you have pics of him before maturity?
@CEC I have an unfortunately very blurry picture of him from about 3 months ago. I'll upload that in just a moment. I've been watching him at a lps for months, so I don't have any clear pictures. His abdomen was almost completely bare prior to the molt, but even before molting I thought his setae looked much lighter than my female A. avic (as a disclaimer, I don't intend to breed this guy with my girl as she’s a different morph)
Ok, well the abdominal gaurd setae of m#6 is distinguishable on sub/pen adult males. So I'd like to see that for assurance.
Also, being from a LPS is another peice to the puzzle as m#1 & m#6 are the overwhelming majority of stock in the US. These two morphs are imported from Guyana (where they share habitats) by the thousands by reptile suppliers and sold to most LPSs. Not full proof but extremely likely its one of the two...
