fyi - they don't always take the same shape -- Luna had them right after she came to us -- and one of them, no joke, was the shape of the Washington Monument in her mouth!! It was about an inch long!!
She had just licked her lips and I thot "what the heck is that she's got in her mouth now!!" and I took a swipe at it thinking it was goo on her fact. It literally came off in my fingers -- WEIRD.
Then Billy got them from Luna and the one HE got we had to have removed. It got HUGE and was being fed directly by a blood vessel and began to bother him. Never did return tho.
Then Kee shu got one on her tongue -- it was just a flat thing -- almost looked like she had a piece of candy on her tongue. It was flattened but had a very tiny root compared to how big around it was.
It was pretty unsightly and she was bothered by it trying to eat. The morning we went to have it removed (after several week) the darned thing literally just fell off.
They can be THE weirdest things.
