Default Can You Please Identify the Colors of my Hoglets?

I have 4 hoglets which are more than 3 months now. It's hard to tell their exact colors. Please help...

I'm pretty sure that the eyes of the light colored hoglets are much darker than red but not black.

To me, the one with the dark mask looks like what I would label as chocolate/grey and the other three are varying degrees of the cinnamon. It was hard to tell which pictures referred to which hedgehog. With eyes, you have to really shine a light on them to tell because some ruby eyes are so dark they almost look black.

Are they all females? If not at 3 months old they should never hang out together. And if they're housed together you could very well already have pregnant baby females, who are pregnant by their brothers. Hedgehogs can breed at 7 weeks and should be separated into boys and girls bins at 6 to make sure.

I'm definitely sure the three light colored don't have black eyes except for the chocolate one.

There are only two females and two males. In the group picture, they are with their mother so there are five of them. They are not housed all together. The males have separate bins while the females are with their mother and I have no problem of their behavior together.

I'll try to upload more pictures and specify which one is whom. Thanks!

Default New Photos of Hoglets

Hi! I'm back with more photos for my hoglets but unfortunately one of the them has already been taken by a friend. So there are only three of them. They are now almost 4 months now.

NOTE: I used a Sony Cybershot Camera DSC-W570 with 16.1 mps. It's just a point and shoot camera. Photos were not edited but they were compressed for the attachment. They were also taken mid-afternoon is daylight.

First, this is MUNCHIN. This is a he.

Lastly, this is Chine. Now this is a she! And she's the sweetest one of them.

I hope these will help with their colors. I'm not really good at determining colors, that's why I joined this site and kept on asking. I'm really amazed by hedgehog colors. Thanks in advance.

And I forgot to say that I didn't use any flash for the photos I uploaded.

Oh my goodness, you're attempting murder-via-cuteness, aren't you? I totally want to hognap Munchkin -- he's a tiny geologist-explorer, sniffing away at that rock! I'm new at identifying colours and really bad at the non-Algerian vs Algerian coloursets, but using the International Hedgehog Association colourguide, here's my thoughts:

Munchkin: almost entirely banded quills, dark brown bands, dark nose: chocolate! The dark mask modifies that to an Algerian chocolate.

Champ: mix of white & banded quills -- maybe 30% white? Bands are light orange, unmasked (or is it a super-pale mask?) and a pale-but-not-pink little nose. Maybe an Apricot (if his eyes are really dark ruby-red) or Algerian Apricot?

Chine: a lot like Champ, but with more white quills, and a distinctly darker nose., so maybe an Algerian Apricot Snowflake?

Thanks Annie&Tibbers! All these hedgies love that slab of rock. I don't know what that rock has but they do love it. That's why it's the only place I know I could take shots of them.

With Munchin, chocolate is also what I suspect his color is. But sometimes I also see him as a grey one.

With both Champ and Chine, they do both have varying degrees of color with their quills that's why I'm so confused. I'm actually hoping they'd be algerian champagne because I heard that that is a rare color for algerians . But their color is also as close to apricot.

What about Algerian Cinnocot? That features a mix of cinnamon-orange and dark apricot banded spines...

(Edited to fix a typo, but spikes, spikes, what's the difference anyway? Same concept! Hmph.)
