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 ?

Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
Im needing some questions answered about my female beardeddragon, I honestly have no idea on age , she was a recuse, as ive had a couple in my life an have experience. So 9 weeks in , she earing well pooping well getting comfortable, then approx 3-4 days ago the digging started. So I got a dig box set up in her 75 g tank. Well within 2 hours she dropped an egg. Now only one egg an its been 10 hours.shouldiBworried
I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
