Winston's Colour!

Winston is now 10 weeks old, and I'd like to know what colour he is! Sorry that some pics are a little blurry. I had a very unwilling model today... :p

I'm thinking maybe Algerian Grey Pinto? I'm not sure if he has enough white quills to count as a snowflake, though he does seem to have a lot randomly interspersed through his quills. He also might be a little darker than pictures of greys I've seen, but I'm not sure - could he be an algerian dark grey? I don't know a ton about hedgehog colour, so please correct me if I'm wrong!

I'm going to guess algerian grey.
Winston is adorable :D
How cute! :D I'd also say Algerian Grey, not enough for snowflake, and I'm not sure on pinto. He *could* be, if those small white patches have pink (unpigmented) skin underneath. Otherwise they are just snowflake clumps, but not enough to technically be called snowflake.

Does that make sense? :lol:
It does! And yeah, he's got pink skin under his white patches. I didn't get a picture of his left side, unfortunately, where he has a bigger patch of white, and it's easier to see that the skin is pink. :p He really did not like the camera. lol. All he wanted to do was hide!
