Wondering if I received the correct plant

The agave ocahui I received was in excellent condition; however, looks nothing like the one pictured. I specifically ordered this item because of the color depicted. The one I received is totally green and I have not read anywhere that the color will deepen or change in the sun. So I am confused.
