Not sure how to get that out ---- I would however get rid of the loose substrate for now and go w/ some textured NON adhesive shelf liner found at Walmart or you local home improvement store - loose substrate for babies is a risk for impaction - babies tend to eat and lick everything -- you can clean the liner w/ some vinegar / water solution 5050 and then wipe w/ a clean wet cloth -- lets see if some others can help w/ the stuff in the nose

Does the dirt seem to be causing irritation or anything like that? Trying to wipe it with a damp qtip is probably a good idea, but other than that I probably wouldn't mess with it much and see if it clears on its own if it doesn't appear to be causing irritation (swelling, mucous buildup, frequent scratching at the area, etc).

Shes not shedding right now but she is wiping both sides of her nose on the hammock so i think its bothering her yes but not like rash irritation

Hopefully she'll be able to work it out of her nose. A qtip or damp washcloth may help you to remove what's along the outside.

Hello,

So things are getting cleared up? I am glad to hear the q-tip worked so well! They can sure
give you some grief.

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
