:The calcium used in calci-sand is the form used for making cement. It is not the same as the type used in calcium supplements and is not digestable.
I also want to add that you are comparing a granular partical in calcisand to powered calcium carbonate..smaller particles disolve alot easier than something coarser. Want to see what I mean, drop a granual of coarse salt into a glass of water and time how long till it disappears. Do the same with a grain of regular table salt. I am sure the smaller table salt will disappear before it hits the bottom of the glass where as coarse salt will sit on the bottom of the glass for a few seconds or more.
Powered calcium carbonate can be more easily absorbed and utilized than the more grainer calci sand. Besides, even if the dragons can use calci sand in digestion, they probably will injest more than they need which is just as bad if they are deficient in calcium.
