Ok The IHA doesn't recognize anything "high" as a color description.
So here we go:
Capucine - Algerian Chocolate
Elonore - Albino
Saphira - Algerian Chocolate Pinto
Myrtille - White-Bellied Grey
Charlamagne - Algerian Brown Snowflake
Naima - Algerian Apricot
Kalina - Algerian Brown
Brownie - Algerian Chocolate
Shooter - Algerian Chocolate
Soraya - Algerian Chocolate Pinto
Romeo - Algerian Brown Pinto
Edward - Algerian Chocolate
Misty - Algerian Brown

Alys - Algerian Grey

Kyana - Algerian Chocolate Pinto

After conferring With Bryan these changes need to be made

Bella is an Algerian Dark Grey
Nessie is an Algerian Champagne Snowflake Pinto
And Jasper is a rare one indeed. He is an Algerian Dark Cinnacot

If Reaper conferred with Bryan, THOSE are the correct colors that Reaper listed! You may register a hog at 9 weeks as one color, but they can snowflake or go white as they get 6 months to 1 yr. The grays and dark grays all fade with age and end up looking like chocolates.

They ALL fade with age towards chocolate. So the darker hogs get lighter and the lighter hogs get darker. And as they get older the color banding is not as defined and tends to "wash out" or "fade". They don't actually change colors but the tint and overall look of the hedgie changes with age. Just as our hair color or any animals hair color changes with age so do our hedgies quills and hair. Quills are modified hairs so it makes perfect sense that they change slightly with age. The best time to see a hedgies color is about 1 year of age. All of the changes such as "flaking" or quills turning white, and all of the quilling is over. Also the color bands are crisp and vibrant. After 1 year they will start to "fade" but it is barely noticeable. After 2 years of age you can really see the difference. So if you take good white light (not nasty "soft white" which is yellow) pictures of your hedgie over time you will see how apparent and subtle the change is. Of course this is just they way it is and they remain beautiful and lovable no matter what their age or color.
