Default Hedgehog changed color yet again. Help?

Hi all. I have a 7 month old hedgehog, which I think some of you will remember.
He changed color for the 4th time now.

He used to be this guy when I adopted him at 5 months old:


Then after a month he turned into this color:


And now, after quilling on his 7th month, he is now this:

Here's another picture of him right now:


Can anyone help me with the color?
I never realized hedgehogs could change color after their 9 week old quilling.
Thanks in advance!

Wow... it even looks like his nose changed color. Looks dark in the first photo, then red in the last.

Yes, they do sometimes change colors with each quilling, by getting more or less white quills. He is a chocolate snowflake.

According to Bryan, that 2-tone nose means he's definite a Chocolate.
Great new tip, I learned here at HHC!

He's beautiful..but, wow! What a big change in his color!! This definitely proves that you can't tell what color they'll be before at least 9 weeks old.

Thanks for all the help guys.

Chocolate snowflake it is then.
Big change in color really. He was a silvery looking color when I got him. Now he's a chocolate. Hehe.
