    I’ve asked the vet about this and she told me that he had a larger penis and it was no problem. But now it’s sticking out, there’s clearly poop on it, and I don’t really believe that it’s his penis. It looks and feels more like a curved fingernail with poop on it. Please help me!! I’ve tried pulling it out a little bit more but I’m scared to hurt him

    It's a seminal plug, and your vet should know that. I would be concerned if my reptile vet didn't.

    Thank you so much! It amazes me how the internet can give me a better answer than my own vet. I will definitely not be going back there.

    Do you suggest waiting until he poops it out or removing it myself?

    I would do daily soaks to help loosen it up, it should come out eventually. Does it seem to be bothering him at all?

    It seems to bother him more when I touch it at all. So I think I’ll stick to the daily baths. Thank you again!

    Hello,

    Wow, yeah, that is a seminal plug, & your vet should have immediately known what it was.
    It definitely isn't his hemepene, it is darker in color & bigger.
    He will be fine & it will work itself out really soon, too so just keep up a daily bath.

    Hello! It did come out a couple days after, but it was really really small. It didn’t look anything like the picture in the link you sent me.
    On another note, he does have a medical problem that over the past couple weeks has seemed to get better but I’m wondering if I can send you a private message to get some extra advice?

    Seminal plugs can come in different sizes so that's not bad, glad it's out.

    Yes you can definitely pm me :)

    Finally something to give me nightmares about. Thankfully Mari doesn’t have the balls to make these things 😂

    I actually found this forum while trying to figure out what a sperm plug was. They do look awfully strange the first time you see them. Charlie had 3 within a month this last summer. It freaked me out!
