Default Blood on outside of toilet paper roll?

This is the third time I've found what looks like blood on the outside of a toilet paper roll my hedgehog plays with.

There is no visible wounds. I even looked in his mouth. His mouth maybe looked greyer than usual. But it's been a year or so since I looked at his mouth.

He doesn't really chew it but it gets worn. My husband says it gets stuck on him for awhile. But I wasn't sure if it was on purpose since he would out it right back on as soon as he took it off.

Does anyone else experience this?

I haven’t personally experienced ‘no cause’ blood, but I have a tip. Try putting down white paper towels or napkins around where he sleeps or frequents most often. Since paper rolls tend to be brown colored, it can be tricky to 100% identify a bodily fluid on them. Try the white paper to see if it’s actually blood. But also be very thorough around their stomach area and genitalia too

Try what Aj.t has said to see if it is actually blood. If is it, and you can't find any cause by looking at him, then go to a vet to get him checked as it could be internal.
