Avicularia avicularia and Avicularia metallica....I've found conflicting info on these.Seems they're both called "pink toes" and A.metallica is sometimes referred to as "white toes".What's the skinny on them..same or different?I know by reading A.avicularia is sometimes kept communally...same for A.metallica?...peace..

They are from the same genus, but not the same species. They are related, but should be reproductively isolated. Whether this is, indeed, the case I do not know.

Yes, some people keep their Avics communaly. I'd check here and here to get some insight into it. Regardless of where people sit on the debate, it is generaly aknowledged that there is a risk involved.

Cheers,
Dave
