Welcome to HHC and congrats on the new little one

Here is what nancy wrote in another post about albinos:

Nope, nothing different for albinos. It's just a colour. Some may be more light sensitive but I've found that really depends on the hedgehog as some dark eyed ones are really light sensitive.

In some species, albinos are less healthy than standard colours but that doesn't hold true for hedgehogs. I too love albinos. I find those red eyes are like windows to their soul.
