Default Pls help me identify the color of my hedgehog

Hi anyone please help me. I was wondering what is the exact color of my hedgehog? Can't decide if he's a champagne, ruby eyed cinni or brown???

I would say Algerian Champagne, though you have to wait til after 9 weeks to tell for sure. Those pics make him look younger than that.

Thank you very much LizardGirl May I ask why he's a champagne and not a cinnicot? some people say he's a cinnicot while others say he's champagne though. And the HHC color guide makes me confused since their champagne is more yellowish and the bands are orange with light gray cast. but my hedge's bands are more brownish or taupe with a pink skin. by the way my hedge is gonna turn 3 months already on august 3. thanks again.

Well, cinnicot is supposed to have a distinct orangey-apricot color, and it looked like he fit the pale champagne color better than cinnicot. (I personally am not a huge fan of the way the colors are set up now, there are way too many colors that are practically the same. :P) Maybe Deneen or Larry will come by and add their two cents.

I couldn't agree more!! Ever since I was born my mom was a Ragdoll cat breeder and I was raised around that... With Ragdolls there are about 7 colors and 5-ish "patterns" ...Needless to say, I was floored last year when I saw how many hedgehog colors there are! It's like every individual hedgehog has its own color/pattern combination

Sorry I can't help you, either. But I don't think he's ruby-eyed anything cause his eyes look blue...? Except what appears to be red-eye (from camera flash). He is very cute though! What's his name?

The light colors are so hard for me to tell apart I can't even take a good guess on this one. Are the eyes ruby,red or black? Some of the pics look ruby some look black to me. One things for sure this hog is a little stunner!

Thank you LarryT! His eyes are ruby with blue ring around the outer edges as you can see from the pic below
