Default Meet Stoffie - what colour is he?

Hello everybody!

I have a new baby hammie! Here are 2 pictures of Stoffie. I think he must be a hybrid; I don't think we have many pure species of hamster here in South Africa. What is his colour called?

Thank you so much!

Edit: I don't know why half of the one photo is slightly red, it's not like that in real life and must have happened with the uploading process. Please excuse it.

He looks very sweet. Yes he should be a hybrid but looks to have sapphire winter white colouring.

What beautiful colouring. Like the look of his set up too. I do love a natural theme.

Thank you mangoandmimi! Does that mean he has quite a bit of winter white genes in him?

And thank you to everyone else for your compliments! I will tell him, I'm sure he'll be happy to hear it.

I suppose so, I mean I’d call him a WW over a hybrid since that’s what he resembles. But still treat him like you would a hybrid - careful diet etc.

He's so cute! Congrats on your hammy

If you got him from the petshop it's a hybrid. To me he looks more like a Campells than a WW (judging from the face, I find that WW often have a bit "rounder" or softer look, while CB look a bit "pointyer" ), but he's probably a mix of both His looks a bit like my new campbells, her coloring is Opal and looks like that

I don’t know about pointier but pure winter whites tend to have more of a ‘Roman nose’ and campbells more flat. Regardless I’d still say winter white colouring, the prominent side arches in particular is a WW trait as well as the general colouring, although sapphires and opals do look similar.

Thank you for the insight mangoandmimi! Here is a better picture of his side profile and his nose shape.
