You can safely determine a hedgehogs color after 9 weeks. You have an Algerian Dark Grey. Very pretty indeed. The Greys and Blacks are highly sought after. Especially the Algerian pattern by those of us who like the heavy mask. You should be a proud Papa.

One of the more common colours is chocolate.
The most common color pattern is albino (and make up for a large quantity of all hedgehogs)

Chocolate is the most common and the color the majority of hedgehogs in the "wild" are. Dark Greys are not extremely rare but they are not common either.

Awww so cute! Our newest one is darker but we have to wait for her final quilling to see if she stays dark. Good luck with your new baby!

Masks can lighten as they age. Here is my big girl Rose at 8wks and at about 2 yrs. See the difference and she's an Algerian chocolate. I had an Algerian dark grey that had a similar light color mask as she does now when he was 4.
