Hello All,

When I checked on my tortoise this afternoon, it looks like his left nostril is plugged up with coco coir. Is this cause for concern and is there anything I can do to help him remove it? See photo for reference...

It doesn't seem to bother him but I currently just have him soaking in warm water, hoping it will moisten enough to dislodge on its own. :/

Thanks!

You need to pick it out. Try a pin or needle, and be careful.
