Red blob came out

Dear All,

Perhaps a similar story to the others. This morning after peeing in water my male 4 year old marginated tortoise stood up tall on the legs and a red blob came out from his backside. It was weird looking and I had no idea what it was. Then it went back inside. It was scary. Any help? A pic is attached

If everything go back inside it's ok. The real issue is if he can't go back in, then you have to go to the vet keeping it wet.
