Default Mila's Color...?

Mila turned 9 weeks on Sunday
I feel like its been an eternity!
I tried taking photos in different areas of my condo to try to capture the most natural white lighting.. its kinda tricky (as I found some pictures made her appear very yellow).




lots of white quills:

Look at all the mottling in this one (pardon the yellow... she doesn't have that staining except for this picture which is alarming):


I don't think her nose is black. Its more of a rich brown. When I look at the picture next to the 'ALGERIAN GREY SNOWFLAKE' on the color guide, that hedgie doesn't have black nose to me.

Also, I can't tell what the color of her quills are.. they look kind of deep brown some times, and grey other times..

Tad early for a proper color id, has she quilled yet? she should be coming up to her final color quilling, starts at or just after 9weeks.

Are her quills cream or white?

I have read several times that accurate colour identification can be performed after the age of 9 weeks (for example here: https://hedgehogcentral.com/colorguide.shtml)

Her quills are off-white/cream.

She has been quilling since I brought her home at 6 weeks old. She first dropped only tiny white quills, now she is dropping banded quills, but they are still short and thin like the white ones. (I just noticed in the 3rd picture you can see 1-2 of them in the bottom right corner on the pink fleece.

The quills are definitely her adult ones. They are much thicker and longer than the ones she is dropping. There are white/cream ones growing in as well as banded ones.

My guess would be Algerian grey snowflake. Hedgiepets and LG should know for sure.
BTW she is stunning!

Algerian Chocolate Snowflake or Algerian Grey Snowflake. Leaning more to the Chocolate since I can't see must rust on the edges of the main banded quills.

She's cute! I'd agree Algerian Grey Snowflake. She'll probably grow in more white quills in the next few months.
