Rick::Make sure to get a supplement that is phosphorus free. Besides D3, Proper calcium absorption requires a 2:1 ratio between Calcium and phosphorus. Additional phosphorus is bad because it is naturally higher then calcium in most reptiles diets and adding additional phosphorus only negates the additional calcium, in fact, reptiles usually get plenty of calcium in their diet. The problem is that they get to much phosphorus and additional calcium is required to bring it back in balance. Personally I have used Phosphorus free Calcium/D3 supplements for years and never had a problem.
