Your reptile or amphibian needs calcium in order to grow, develop and maintain a healthy skeletal structure, and supplements like this Exo Terra Calcium + D3 Supplement are the best and easiest way to give them the calcium they need.
Without a good, natural supply of calcium, your reptile can suffer from painful joints and even deformities caused by MBD (Metabolic Bone Disease), and calcium supplements like this are essential to providing them with enough.
However, a good supply of calcium isn't much use without plenty of vitamin D3 to help them assimilate the calcium into their bodies. This Exo Terra supplement contains both calcium AND D3, giving them everything they need to stave off MBD (although UV D3 light is essential too).
It is phosphorous free calcium too, meaning there should be no phosphorous contribution from this supplement.
Product characteristics at a glance:
- Contains the essential elements for proper calcium metabolism.

We recommend using the Exo Terra Cricket Feeder to feed your reptile effectively and naturally with a supply of livefood dusted with this food supplement.
