Hey LG, I posted a thread about Kashi developing Algerian markings.

What are your thoughts on that?

He was actually ID'd as a white bellied chocolate chip, but recently he's developed the Algerian cheek markings? O_O"

Here's the thread:

Our hedgie, Ogden, is almost 5 years old, and I noticed that he has gone from having dark brown and cream colored quills to having caramel and cream colored ones. The fading started on his backside, and is now up to his ears. It's a pretty caramel color. Is this color fading with age like people graying with age?

Added an updated picture of Inky today - one I got of him this last Monday. A general sum up of how his color seems to be doing, his nose faded slightly in the first few years, but not a lot. Then it's his mask that has faded the most, losing the majority of its pigment. Under certain lighting you can still see it but it's very faint nowadays.

His quill color hasn't changed since his adult quilling.

Always the little looker. Good to see Inky! Have his ears gotten lighter too?

Inky says thanks. Yep, his ears have lightened a little bit, but not a whole lot. Basically same as his nose, they did a little in the first few years but haven't changed recently.
