White solid coming out of nose

does anyone know what this white mushroom shaped solid is coming out of my beardie’s nose? When we try to touch it he jerks his head back, so he definitely feels it.

It's shed. Oddly enough, they do shed the insides of their nostrils. As you could imagine, it's quite ticklish/sensitive :p

He will likely rub his face along things in his tank to help get them off when he is ready to :)

Follow along with all my beardies. Check out my thread here!: Claud's Crew
P.S. We have lots of pictures ;)

Yup they shed the inside of their noses it's an adaptation for swimming or burrowing they have small flaps in their noses they can close to prevent anything entering like water or substrate. They also can pop they're eyes out to release shed or other debris or fly eggs even , you can take a beardie out the wild but you cannot take the wild out of a beardie . Offer some rocks they like abrasive or rough things to rub on during shed and it will help with keeping nails trimmed and filed down
