Reptiles can have complicated dietary requirements that can’t always be met in a domestic environment, but in most instances these deficiencies can be met by vitamin and mineral supplements.
Nutrobal comes in powder form that can easily be added to the food. It can be dusted onto live food such as crickets (for insectivores), and will optimise the health of your pet reptile when given at the correct doses.
It is not only insectivores who will benefit from this high calcium supplement. Larger reptiles (including crocodiles) fed on a mainly meat diet will also benefit greatly from the additional support for normal bone development.
Growing tortoise and turtles need calcium for their shells, without it they can experience calcium related deficiencies such as pyramiding of their shells.
Typical calcium deficient foods which should be supplemented include crickets, mealworms, raw meat and/ or vegetables.
