Default Rat people - HELP!

OMG, I'm having a mild freak out moment.

Biggs has a freaking....THING in his ear. I have no idea what it is. At first I thought it was a freaking larva of some kind, but it isn't. I don't think. It is brown and hard and crusty and jutting out of his ear. I tried to get it out with tweezers thinking maybe it was just a huge chunk of wax (or maybe he got poop stuck in his ear), but it's stuck, so I'm 99% sure it is attached to his ear. Not his inner ear, but the inside of the outer ear.


I have never seen anything like it. He didn't seem bothered when I was yanking on it, so I don't think it is hurting him. I noticed him scratching at his ears the other night, but otherwise he's completely normal.

I'm going to take him in to work with me tomorrow to see if my vet's know WTF it is, but they aren't pocket pet people and will probably be just as stumped as I am.

Has ANYONE heard of anything like this before?

HELP. It is creeping me out. And I don't want anything to be wrong with Biggs.

PICTURE - it isn't very noticeable in the photo, but it's there. Trust me. When he turns it head it sticks out more:

(I am going to try to take it out again...oh, God, I hope it is just ear wax. Or maybe a wart. A wart would be okay. I think.)
