Avicularia (something)

I bought this from a local pet shop who sold it as just a generic "Pink Toe Tarantula". I'm thinking its a veriegata, but I'd love some other opinions (while I'm not really new to the hobby in general I'm definitely pretty new to arboreals!) Thanks yall!
Ok, great! Thanks! Just so I know what to look for next time, what features helped you to come up with that?
Setae structure and coloration mainly but also the fact that if you found a variegata and not one of the over abdunant Avicularia avicularia wild caught that stocks the overwhelming amount of shelves at the local pet store and it just happened to mislabeled for far less $ than you'd be 1 of 2 people out of the thousands I've seen say the same thing daily on the internet for the last decade. Just the sheer odds alone says it's an Avicularia avicularia of some type. Just in case all this I'm saying isn't quite oonvincing enough, you can always measure the hind and front legs. Avicularia avicularia have hind legs %10 longer than the front set of legs. Whereas, variegata hind and front sets of legs are equal in length. 👍
