:If you give calcium to a reptile, use only a little amount, and once a week is ok.

Calcium requirements vary widely with age, growth rate and breeding status. A once weekly supplement may be sufficient for many non-breeding adult reptiles but would likely be quite inadequate for the young of many species. This is particularly true for the fast growing species such as beardeds and veileds.
