Hiiii

So I always see videos of what I assume to be stuck shed being removed and a long plug coming out.

The thing is, I wouldn't have assumed it was stuck shed if they didn't remove it - the nose looked normal to me.

So is there a way I can know for sure that a beardie has stuck shed on their nose?

My beardie never had trouble with shed but I've noticed his nose aren't as... flat (?)... there's like a lil hump. Is that normal? Here are some photos:

His nose will look like its covered which that would be shed--- let it come out on its own - you can moisten it w/ a spray of water to help it but no nose picking please

Your dragons nose is normal.
Like Karrieree said you shouldn't try to remove it anyway, you could injure the tissue inside. You asked how to tell, my male gets them once in a while, when he does he huffs till he blows them out.

Ooh so his aren't covered since his nose isn't blocked, so it's all good? No stuck shed ?

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?
