I don't know anything about colour but I have never seen a hedgehog like that before. He's so strange and unique.

How odd! The quills, are they banded in that color, or does the orange cover the whole quills? To me it looks like an albino that was dyed...

I agree it looks like he'es been dyed but when looking closer at the picture you can see individual white quills in with the coloured. It would be almost impossible to dye and still have those white quills. Interesting. Can you post more pictures, maybe some real clear closeups.

Another thought is he was dyed as a baby and new white quills are growing in.

Do people really dye hedgies? I gather this is bad?
It doesn't sound very nice
I've never even heard of that especially not when babies.

It's possible, there was an albino rescue that was dyed blue that is now in Florida, and people dye white cats all the time.

Where did the hedgie come from? You might want to contact them to get more information about the hedgie's background.
