Cool Albino or Pale/Apricot Snowflake?!

This is my boy Speedy, I always assumed that he was an Albino, but now it's starting to look like he's dirty, with a little bit of yellow-ish staining on his side. Could it be that he's dirty or that he's actually an Pale/Apricot Snowflake? Please help!

Cheers

He isn't albino, that's for sure! Being albino means the animal(or person!) would have absolutely NO pigment whatsoever in their skin/hair/eyes. To me it looks like he has peachy color quills with some sprinklings of white throughout. He does have pretty ruby red eyes, but some animals are born with a recessive gene that causes them to have red eyes without being albino.

Other than that I don't know what color he would be! He sure is cute nonetheless. =]

Yep definitely isn't albino . My guess (hard to see if he has pure white quills in his fur) would be apricot. Almost looks too dark to me pale apricot...maybe it's the lighting. To me he looks very similar to the photo of the Hedgie on the color page: https://www.hedgehogcentral.com/colorguide.shtml

I didn't need to click the thumbnails to enlarge it. No, not an albino
