Beardie sleeping with mouth slightly open on side?

Postby Chloepd7 » Mon May 10, 2021 9:22 pm

When my little Ozzie snuggled into the carpet tonight for a little nap I noticed his mouth was slightly open just on the side! He’s only been in my care for a few days but is this something normal or could he possibly have some shed obstructing his breathing? Here’s a picture. I didn’t want to get too close cuz the little guy is snoozing and I don’t want to wake him up [Click image to enlarge]

Hello,

He is very sweet!
It is hard to tell but it is possible that he could have some shed on his mouth or nose that
could be affecting him.
You have only had him a few days now?

It could be some shed as mentioned. The skin along the sides of their mouth also tends to be a bit flexible, so perhaps he just fell asleep in a way that allowed the carpet to pull at his beard and bring the skin around his jaw down a bit. If that's the case it's no big deal. Keep an eye on it and see if you notice any patterns.
