JurassiCal is a concentrated (400,000 ppm) phosphorus free source of calcium for reptiles and amphibians. Herbivorous and carnivorous diets are frequently calcium deficient and phosphorus rich. Thus, it is of no benefit to use a calcium supplement containing phosphorus. Ideally, the dietary calcium to phosphorus (Ca:P) ratio should be no less than 1.2:1 and is ideally maintained from 2:1 up to 8:1 (depending on the species).Lack of calcium in the diet can lead to metabolic bone disease and shell deformities and soft shells in turtles and tortoises. JurassiCal is also Vitamin D3 free. Although Vitamin D3 is required for calcium processing, it could easily build to toxic levels if it were part of a frequently used calcium supplement. Vitamin D3 is more safely supplemented as part of a comprehensive and well balanced vitamin supplement like JurassiVite.

Sometimes Lizards just can't see right...

posted 6 years ago

I work at a pet store is this is the only product I recommend to my customers. I also use this product. Sometimes the lizard may have a hard time seeing the cricket/Mealworm/Superworm. Having the white power on them helps the lizard distinguish the meal from their bedding. For a plus it helps to keep your animal healthy.

Pros: This helps the lizard see the cricket/Mealworm better, and it keep my lizard strong and healthy

Cons: None that I have found yet

Iams ProActive Health Multi-Cat Chicken & Salmon Cat Food

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
