Boogers in the Animal Kingdom

A lion

With the exception of apes, chimpanzees and the like, how do animals deal with boogers? A lack of fingers seems to put them at a distinct disadvantage.


  1. Are you suggesting the only way is to use your finger? I thought animals rub their nose on the ground?

  2. @ Ngaire,

    How do they get those ones stuck way up in their nostrils? Blowing hard and rubbing on the grass can only free the looser/runnier ones.

  3. @ Liam,

    Maybe they have super animal strength nose blowing capabilities for those tricky ones?
