it is important that all reptiles and amphibians have access to a good source of uva and uvb in order to metabolise calcium
The importance of calcium in reptile nutrition is of high concern. Calcium deficiency is a common problem, especially with reptiles pressured into longer-than-natural breeding seasons. This situation causes unnatural stress on females to produce more eggs, so they require more calcium. Remember, however, that it is not just a lack of calcium that creates this problem, but also a complex relationship between many vitamins and minerals.
Phosphorous, and its relationship to calcium, is also important. Animalkeepers generally agree that an inclusion ratio of 2-to-1 (calcium to phosphorous) is optimal. This is a common ratio measured in the healthy bone analysis of most vertebrates. To err on the high side with calcium is generally much easier for an animal to metabolize than a diet with a ratio less than 2-1. Even a 3-1 ratio is metabolized efficiently by most organisms.
