Sold as cobalt blue

Not sure how easy it is to identify slings, but hoping somebody could tell me if it is a cobalt blue or something else
It's not too easy to identify slings, they all are too similar. However it looks similar to mine, so here's that.
Give it time, raise it and if it comes up to be anything else, contact the seller.
 
Basically every sling globally except for a few patterned ones like Avicularia, Ebyrapora (hope I spelt that right) and I think chromatopelma will look like this, dull brown until they molt a few times. It's best to wait till it's slightly larger and begins to get some colouration
 
@RezonantVoid most slings deffinitely cannot be identified however there are ‘groups’ that you can usually eliminate. For example most NW terrestrial slings can be identified as such as they look much different than NW arboreals or OW slings. i believe some here (not me) are also adept at being able to identify Asian vs African slings. (perhaps Aussie as well but its almost a non issue so IDK)
 
@Theneil Aussie T's are all like this except Selenotypus. Occasionally, a well developed clutch of slings displays colouration and leg length early and can be ID'd but yea they are all the same
