Calcium

 

Calcium is an absolutely vital element to having a healthy lizard. This is the main vitamin that affects bone development and growth, and without it your lizard is at a high risk of metabolic bone disease amongst other conditions. One of the first signs of a lack of calcium is weakness in terms of climbing or even walking. If your lizard is known for climbing you will almost certainly notice that it will not climb as high in the habitat if it has a lack of calcium.

Calcium supplements can be purchased from most pet stores. The calcium powder can then be dusted on their food before you feed it to your lizard.

Different species of lizards have different requirements for calcium so it is best to check out our care sheets for the most accurate information regarding your lizard.
