 Grit

I have just started reading about breeding, and came across something about grit in the cage that’s used to aid digestion and maintain calcium. I use small calcium dishes, but couldn’t grit cause impaction? It was just a small dish of crushed egg shell, sand, and calcium? Is this needed? Or is it impaction city?

you don’t need to worry about the "grit" part then. i believe there are some species of reptiles that need it, but for leopard geckos a simple calcium dish works perfectly. you can find pure calcium for reptiles online. in conjunction with that, if you aren’t already, get some calcium with d3 as well to dust the feeder items with. the calcium dish shouldn’t have any d3 in it.

I saw the "Grit" stuff used by people breeding Leos and that’s what brought it up. I have all of the other proper calcium suppliments. Just curious about the grit.
