Exo Terra Calcium Powder, 15.9oz
Captive reptiles and amphibians need routine calcium supplementation to balance the ratio of calcium and phosphorus in their diet. When they don't get enough calcium, reptiles can develop health problems such as neurological dysfunction, muscle tremors, and weak, deformed bones.
WARNING — This supplement DOES NOT contain vitamin D3, which is an essential vitamin for reptiles that don't have appropriate UVB lighting installed in their enclosure. If your reptile does not have UVB lighting, you need a calcium powder that contains a moderate to high amount of vitamin D3, such as Exo Terra Calcium Powder + D3.
For optimal nutrition, it's best practice to occasionally use a calcium or multivitamin supplement with low levels of vitamin D3 to "top up" your reptile's reserves, even if it has UVB lighting.
