Which Avicularia avicularia Morph Is She?

I'm not planning to breed her; I'm just curious. She was sold as a "pinktoe tarantula, Avicularia sp." (There are additional photos linked below.)

      Common M#1, I bet. Also likely wild caught from Guyana if it came from a pet store or reptile dealer.

      @CEC On that note, it seems there has been a big import of Avicularia from somewhere recently. There are a ton of Avic ID threads as of late and they all look pretty much the same.

      Yup, there has been yet another big import from Guyana recently. Lots of people messaging me.

      My limited Australian expertise tells me AA M1

      @CEC Thanks.

      I bought her as a juvenile from PetSmart in 2014, so I can't rule out the possibility that she is WC.

      Yes, Petsmart & Petco are known to carry WC from Guyana. In which case, she would be m#1.
      You will also find m#6 at those places, as they share habitats in Guyana and are often mixed together in imports.
