Oh yeah I forgot, I know you can't see it in the picture but the places where there is color the skin is kind of a light gray nude color thats why I was guessing algerian apricot since it matches that description best.

She looks like a chocolate/other pinto. Sometimes they are referred to as "reverse" pinto though it is not a "real" term in hedgehog color identification. They are becoming more common.

Very cute!

She would be called a Chocolate Pinto under IHA terms. One term used by some is Chocolate Reverse Pinto. Her primary color is Chocolate.

I didn't think a chocolate had red eyes and a pink nose would the pinto part cause that? Sorry to ask so many questions I am just trying to get a better grasp on how to judge the coloring, it isn't nearly as night and day as ball python morphs.

Pinto is a form of partial albinism. Any skin under pinto spots is likewise affected by the pintoism. Therefore, when pinto covers the eyes, the eyes will look like an albino's - pink. When the pinto covers the nose, the nose will be pink as well.

Ok, I want a reverse pinto,
with a non albino portion, covering just ONE eye.
one albino eye
one normal eye
$5000 for it!
That would be the craziest hedgehog in the world!
in another thread, names are being discussed, I believe SPOT would be appropriate.
I would go with Ball...
