About Reptile Diets
Reptiles consist of a variety of species
which consume a diverse range of foods
to satisfy their nutritional requirements.
This includes insectivores (small skinks
and geckos), omnivores (blue-tongues,
bearded dragons & short-necked turtles)
and carnivores (long-necked turtles,
goannas and snakes).
However, in captivity, a lack of dietary
variety can lead to nutritional disorders
such as Metabolic Bone Disease (caused
by a deficiency of calcium or vitamin D3 ).
Captive diets should therefore be
supplemented with a full range of nutrients
including protein and fat for growth as well
as essential vitamins & minerals. Whilst
calcium supplementation is important, this
needs to be balanced to avoid deficiencies
in other minerals such as zinc and copper.
