I agree with you Igal Talu I think you will find it is mud I have had ones with stripes, V’s and one had a perfect heart. It is more noticeable when they come out of hibernation and it seems to stay on them for ages but it does fade. I asked at a hedgehog rescue and showed her the pictures and she said it was mud.
