I have two guys that almost have the same color, the only difference is that one has red eyes and a pink nose while the other one has black eyes and a dark nose.

They are 9 weeks old, and the quills are painfully sharp on these two guys. No idea why though. Hehe. Their quills look brown-banded. If I were to guess, I'd say they look like choco snowflakes (since they look a lot like the one bryan ID'd for me way back - also a choco snowflake). However, the pink nose and red eyes are not there in the color guide.

Here is the picture of the male.




And here is the female.



Help would be really appreciated.
Thanks a lot. :D

The first one looks like a RE Cinnicot to me and the second one looks Algerian Brown. (could be wrong but thats what they look like to me)

Thanks for your help.
I have a RE cinnicot as well (as ID'd by bryan).
While he looks similar to the guy above.. they look very different in person.
The bands of the guy above is more of a brown, while the cinnicot below has beige (?) -ish color.

I am at loss. The lighter colors are so hard! :lol:

I think they are both Algerian, but I'm not 100% sure about the top one.

My best guess is Algerian Apricot, or WB Ruby-eyed Cinnicot.
The bottom one, Algerian Brown, but the nose tells me that's probably not right? I'm no expert. :roll:

In order to be Algerian they must posses cheek patches which I just noticed the RE has so I would now say Algerian RE Cinnacot and Algerian brown. I can show you two very different looking hedgies that fall under the same colour class. It is a bit of a pain sometimes identifying them for the registry but that would be my thinking.

Actually, I'm not aware of there being an Algerian red-eyed Cinnicot. Maybe I'm wrong. :? There is just plain cinnicot, but it looks too orangey?

No, sorry that was my fault, I did mean Apricot. There are a large number of hedgies out there who don't 'fit' into any of the recognised catigories too (these two do however)

Thank you for your time, LG and Tan.

Okay.. so as of now I'll follow your word and classify them as Algerian Apricot and Algerian Brown.
LG, I'm with you in how the lighter colors are so hard to ID accurately. :lol:
