What type of Hedgehog is it?

Fuzzy close up of Peg's quills
There are standards for classifying the type of hedgehog you have. Since Peggy is a rescue I can only guess from the images and descriptions that she is an African Pygmy Hedgehog and would likely be classified as either Chocolate, Cinnamon or Brown. I highly doubt she is a proper pure bred. Curious about classifying your Hedgie? There is an excellent image and descriptive chart here.
