Default Can someone help me with color?

Here is my hedgehog, Martini! All the breeder put on her birth certificate was "pinto" and it has come to my attention that is just a pattern (and she doesn't really look like the examples of pinto I have seen). I just want to know if she is, in fact, pinto and what her true coloring is! Thanks guys!

Looks like a black split face with eye rings to me.

I do not think she is pinto either! she has some fully white quills scattered about but not in bunches like I have seen on pintos.

Definitely doesn't have the pinto pattern.

I think the skin under the quills looks jet black or dark grey? (its really hard to see from pictures)
And the mottling of the underbelly looks pretty extensive to me (not that I have really seen much of this) and also looks black.
Whatever the colour yours is a split face - but it looks black in the picture, I may be wrong and its actually grey. And its defiantly a small mask.
And its definitely white bellied not algerian because there are no markings on the checks.

So what I'm thinking from this is one of these colours

Salt and pepper -
The quills are white banded black, almost all the quills are banded (which looks pretty similar to yours guys quills from the pictures)
The skin on the shoulder (under the quills) is jet black.
The nose and eyes are black
The mask is small but black.
Black mottling of the underbelly is extensive.

Dark Grey -
The quills are white banded by black with rusty brown outer edges, almost all the quills are banded
The skin on the shoulders is dark grey almost black
The nose and eyes are black
The mask is small but black
Black mottling of the underbelly is extensive.

Personally I think its dark grey because the quills in the photos when you look really close do look a bit rusty brown on the top. The only thing I really can tell is if the skin is just dark grey almost black or actually jet black.
