Here are some pictures of Inky to show how hedgehog color fades with age. Inky is a WB Chocolate. Sorry for the variation in lighting, the differences should still be apparent though.

Inky is such the little stud!
I love the 2 years 2 months pic!

Great example of the color fading.
It doesn't look like much but it's still noticeable.

Aw those are adorable. I didn't know that colour faded with age (never had a baby). I love the one of him in his wheel and the 1 yr 2 month pic.

Hehe, thanks for the comments. He should fade more, I'll add pictures as he gets older.

Yes. Darker hedgies get lighter, and some lighter hedgies get darker as they age.

LG: I don't claim to be a color expert.....but he "appears" to be an ALGERIAN with the dark colroed mask.....?????.....I'm sure that I'm probably wrong, as I'm sure that you have consulted with the professional. But, I'd be curious as to the reason he is being called a White Bellied.

He doesn't have an extensive enough mask to be considered Algerian. It's there, but very faint. It does seem to show up better in pictures than in person. An Algerian chocolate would have a much darker, prominent mask and cheek patches.
