Exo Terra Calcium + D3 for reptiles
Exo Terra Calcium + D3 is a calcium preparation specially developed for terrarium reptiles. Thanks to the addition of vitamin D3, Exo Terra Calcium is quickly absorbed by the body and can fulfil the functions so important for reptiles. The rapid uptake into the reptile body is also the reason why Exo Terra Calcium + D3 does not contain phosphorus, which the terrarium inhabitants usually ingest more than sufficiently through food. Why should I feed Exo Terra Calcium + D3? Reptiles kept by humans almost always suffer from one problem: calcium deficiency. This is simply due to the fact that despite sophisticated terrarium technology and the best nutrition of the reptiles, it is not possible to create exactly the same nutritional conditions that the animals find in the wild. It is therefore vital for the terrarium inhabitants that they are additionally supplied with calcium. Exo Terra Calcium + D3 is designed to help prevent the dreaded diseases of rickets and armour deformation that can quickly occur when calcium deficiency occurs.
Use Exo Terra Calcium + D3 correctly: The addition of vitamin D3 promotes the absorption of calcium into the body of reptiles. Vitamin D3, on the other hand, can only be produced by reptiles with the right UV radiation. Therefore, all reptiles that are not kept outdoors in natural sunlight should be additionally supplied with the plus of vitamin D3. You should only use Exo Terra Calcium without vitamin D3 for reptiles that are kept outdoors, such as turtles in summer outdoor enclosures. If these animals are then kept in a terrarium again in autumn, we recommend switching to the + D3 variant.
