    So my local pet store has a "pinktoe" for sell but it's not like the two others they have. Is it possible to identify this little beauty?

    Looks to me like an Avic avic transitioning and is some molt between sling coloration and adult.

    Avicularia, just like many other genera, are a messed up, cross bred and poorly described genus in this hobby. So is Aphonapelma, Pamphobeteus, Phormictopus, and many others..but yeah, looks like an A avic sling. Cute little guy.

    Edit, there is hope though, taxonomists are revising and better describing these genera, props to them. A tip of the hat, ladies and gents.
