Avic Avic?

I don't know. The abdominal setae and the overall coloration of this Avicularia is screaming "blue velvet" (which is now a color variant under Avicularia avicularia) or Avicularia geroldi. Possibly M6 (blue coloration). I could be wrong. I'm not too good at identifying avics. All I know is that I know how big she is (from what you've told me) and I've never seen an Avicularia avicularia (pet shop/hobby form) get that large or have that coloration after x amount of molts. If I had to choose one of the three,
I would go with M6.

I’m actually not much of an expert, I just named myself that because I like the species lol. I used to know the morphs but I have forgotten them besides M6 (ex Metallica) as Casey K. has shown.

The picture makes her look small but she is eating a large locust and is actually 6.5 inches DLS on the moult. I might try and get some more pics with and without flash later today :)
