Hi,

I have SIX hedgehogs to determine/confirm color on & I'm hoping you guys can help me. All of them are at least 13 weeks or older. Please click the photos below to enlarge the image and see more pictures (& in some cases videos) of each hedgehog. (A little disclaimer - some of the hedgies look a little oily in their pics because they got bathed with some olive oil to help with quilling & skin mites when we first got them & hubby used a little too much oil.)

Prinny
Is he an Algerian dark-eyed cinnicot?


Weedle
At 6 weeks old, we thought he looked to be Algerian Chocolate.

But by 2 1/2 months old, he turned into a beautiful snowflake. I'm wondering if he's Algerian Chocolate snowflake (his banded quills are still about the same color & his face is still dark) and what percentage of snowflake you would say he is I'm sorry I don't have many pics of him, I'll try to add some more to the album soon.


Eevee
I'm guessing her to be Standard Chocolate.


Skitty
Standard Cinnamon?


Pichu
I believe she is a Dark-eyed Apricot (standard or Algerian?) and I'm not sure if the white quills are pinto or snowflake. Anyone?


Cherubi
I'm guessing she is a Standard Grey Pinto. I'll see about getting more pics of her soon too because I think she was pretty young in these.


Thanks so much for any help you can give me on this.

It is extremely hard to determine color from one picture. You really need to see all seven indicators, The eighth (or first) being age.

Hi Reaper,

As I said in my post, if you click on the pictures, it will take you to a larger image & you can browse the photo album to see more pics of each hedgehog. Each hedgie in the pics is I'd say between 10 weeks and 8 months old. I hope that helps. I'll try to add more pics to the albums soon, but I think I have quite a few in most of them.

Thanks,
Misty

Adorable names!!!

Most seemed spot on. Prinny appears to be a cinnamon to me, as by the video, and the pictures, he has black eyes? He is a lighter brown, so cinnamon?

Pichu, to my understanding, is pinto. A snowflake needs to have equal amount of each, equally placed around, to my understanding. It appears Pichu has two large spots on her back, where there are few white quills.

I would say:

Prinny: Algerian Dark Eyed Cinnicot if he has black eyes (it looks to me like the nose is too light for cinnamon), Algerian Cinnicot if he has ruby eyes
Weedle: Algerian Grey Snowflake (I'm not sure what you'd need the percentage of white quills for... you'd have to just guess)
Eevee: If all the pictures in her folder are of her, then she's she looks like a White Bellied Chocolate Snowflake. I'm tempted to say Algerian from the double banding on the quills but from how dark her quills are I think her mask would have to be darker for her to be Algerian.
Skitty: Algerian Cinnamon, though it looks like the quills are more brown than orange, but that could just be the lighting.
Pichu: Pichu definitely looks like she has ruby eyes. I would say Algerian Champagne Pinto (she's pretty light so it might be hard to tell a difference, but pinto makes the skin underneath pink)
Cherubi: Algerian Grey Pinto

Hope that helps
