To my knowledge.....Salt & Pepper.....is just another name for a standard Grey.
Just as, Tobiano.....means the same as.....Pinto. (edit: correction)

Bryan, would be able to confirm if this is correct or not.

Reaper, you are correct. It was just too early in the morning and I meant to type PINTO.

The term Salt & Pepper is vastly over used by some breeders and pet stores. True S&P's are black as black can be and as white as a sheet of paper...brilliant white. Not tan or cream. True salt and peppers are very very rare. I am sure Bryan will chime in on this as he is the expert. Most likely your hedgie by what you describe is a grey, chocolate, or brown. And the term tobiano is the same as a pinto if I am not mistaken. I will learn more next weekend when Bryan gives his seminar on colors.

As Reaper has already mentioned, Salt & Pepper is not the general term that many pet stores and some inexperienced breeders apply to the colour Chocolate.

True Salt & Pepper has a very dark, black mask and white quills that are banded by black - not tan or brown! If you are seeing tan and brown I'll put money on it being a Chocolate. (and I'm no betting man)

Below is a photo of a S&P and an Algerian Chocolate for comparison

Yes, I'll be giving a seminar on understanding hedgehog color at Milwaukee next week. I've put together a DVD that, when used in conjunction with the Color Guide (https://www.hedgehogcentral.com/colorguide.shtml) should be a tremendous help to people trying to sort through all 92 colors.

It took me "only" 4 years to sort out all the colors, but it's taken me the remaining 10 years to sort all of that extremely complicated information into an easily explained format that readily makes sense. I'll have copies for sale after the show.
