RepCal 0 D3 Calcium No Phosphorus No Vitamin D3 Calcium deficiency is a major dietary problem of captive reptiles and amphibians. Maintaining a proper calcium:phosphorous (Ca:P) ratio in the diet of 1.5:1 is believed to be just as important nutritionally as an adequate Ca intake. The problem in most cases is an improper Ca:P ratio, not too little Ca. Ca:P ratios of common culture food items are shockinglt poor: (e.g. crickets 0.13:1, meal worms 0.06:q, wax worms 0.08:1, and pinky mice 0.89:1). Using a calcium supplement that also adds phosphorous makes no sense as an adequate Ca:P ratio can never be achieved. Bone meal contains phosphorous.
