Default Supposed "Albino" doesn't seem so Albino...

I just adopted my new two-year-old make hedgie, Comet, and his previous owners told me through various forms of communication tha he was Albino and the pictures that I saw of him were too blurry to analyze his colors closely. Now that I am playing with him, I see light brown banding on the quills on his shoulders and neck. His other quills are more cream than lacking-pigment white. He has very dark, almost black, almost black eyes. What do you think?

Not albino. Albinos have bright reddish pink eyes-- not dark at all! He sounds more like an apricot, but pictures will help ID his color.

I just went and looked--- oh my, he is adorable!! He is DEFINITELY not an albino, from the pictures my best guess is that he is a WB brown snowflake pinto. He is an absolute doll-- I love that sweet little liver-colored nose, I just want to "boop" it!

WB stands for white bellied. I'm going to agree with the Brown snowflake. He doesn't have the ginger color that my cinnicot has.

What a handsome boy..I'm a sucker for snowflakes. He looks like a brown snowflake pinto to me but I'm far from an expert on colors. He is absolutely beautiful! I love his coloring
