Question What color is Tuesday?

The person I adopted Tuesday from said she is a pinto. Since I'm so new to the great world of hedgehogs I don't know that much about their colors. I wanted to see if anyone could tell me if she's indeed a pinto or another color.

She's not a pinto that I can see.. and that's a pattern not a color I would say chocolate but I'm not great with colors.

So, pinto is a pattern of albino patches on top. I don't see any obvious ones, but if Tuesday has areas of white quills with pink skin underneath, those are pinto patches.

She's gorgeous and I love how she contrast so nicely with the background. (Is it fair to have bedding-envy? But I like it!)

For colour, from the colourguide, I'm thinking she might be chocolate?

Pinto is also called leucism, found in various animals. I don't see spots either but maybe she has spots on her other side?

I think she's a chocolate as well

From comparing to the color guide she looks to be gorgeous I think she is a chocolate but I'm quite new to colors.

I also vote chocolate, almost a chocolate snowflake (that is the solid white quills you see, but they need a certain % to be white to be a snowflake).
