How do you tell the difference between a Honduran and a Nicaraguan? I'm planning on buying a T. albo but they don't specify in the post which it is. I'm assuming that it's a Honduran and it doesn't really matter to me which it is, I'm just curious. Is there a way to tell from just a photo?

You can't tell slings/smaller juvies apart as they look identical, once they floof out and get some adult colouration they're easy to tell apart.

Honduras is brown/black with shorter/curlier copper coloured hairs

Nicaragua is black/gun metal with longer/straighter white coloured hairs (you'll find plenty of pics online, mine is still a rather nondescript small juvenile).

Ones Nicaraguan and ones Honduran
I just ask for their passport
That's kind of what I figured. Just curious.
The Nic pics of juvie and adults are easily different than Hon.

Nic have much wilder looking setae, it’s NOTICEABLE in every pic I’ve seen so far.

I have a Honduran.

But I can tell you the US market wasn’t always only Hondurans.
