    another thing, do leopard geckos need calcium and D3 seperate or can it be calcium with D3? because I can't find plain vitamins without calcium.

    Are you looking for Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins without D3? Those can be ordered from Amazon or from the Reptile Supply Company near Sacramento, California and other places too.

    You'll have much more flexibility when you have 2 separate supplements. Sometimes it may be necessary to use calcium + D3 more often than a multivitamin. Here's why I recommend pure calcium carbonate + D3 in one supplement and multivitamins in a separate supplement.

    sorry I answered twice, anyway I found better supplements ( I think ) they are HERPTIVITE Multivitamin for reptiles and amphibians ( 3.3 oz. powder ) without d3, and Royal Pet Supplies Inc Zoo Med Reptile Calcium with d3 ( powder). The HERPTIVITE has a lot of vitamins ( 15 to be exact ) is that to many?

    No problem. It looks like GU still has double-posting issues.

    Rep-Cal's Herptivite multivitamin has been around a very long time. Herptivite contains vitamin A in the form of beta carotene. Research has shown that lizards need a wee bit of vitamin A acetate (retinol) @ 1 feeding per week.

    I believe that Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins is superior to Rep-Cal's Herptivite. So does Scott Stahl, DVM!

    I've shared this several times on this thread. I'm not sure you're seeing it. These supplements ARE much better than Rep-Cal's!

    You're welcome.

    When you follow schedules 124, 125, & 126 life with your soon-to-be leo should be fine. Keep other husbandry in check as well. There should be no worries at all.

    Many first-time GU leo keepers have followed these guidelines with excellent results! Get the largest enclosure you can right from the geck-go. I recommend a 20 long: 30 x 12 x 12 with an 11 x 17 heat mat and a thermostat.

    Is it time to take your plunge?
