Description

 

  • Calcium Supplement forReptiles and Amphibians
  • Phosphorus free

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)*. 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™.

DIRECTIONS: BEGINNER: Lightly dust food before serving. Adheres best if food is already slightly moist.

ADVANCED: Carnivores: Dust mammals and insects with 1 g (1/3 tsp.) for every 10 g (1/3 oz) of food. Dust boneless meat and gut loaded insects with 400 mg (1/8 tsp.) for every 10 g (1/3 oz) of food. Herbivores: Dust vegetables and fruits with 1 g (1/3 tsp.) for every 400 g (about 4 cups) of food. Use 2–4 times more for turtles and tortoises and to increase calcium deposition in breeding or gravid animals.
