 Columbian Tegu doesnt like with D3 calcium

Hello, Im new to this forum, I wanted a Columbian Tegu since a long time, I prepared myself for 2 years and I finally bought it 3 weeks ago, he have been eating pretty well. I have feed him with boiled eggs, chicken heart, crickets (he just ate them once) and Fish. The problem I found, is that he does’nt like his food when I add the calcium with D3 powder, he tastes it and simply he stops eating, when I don’t add this, he eats pretty well. Could you give me some advices of how to make him eat calcium? Can I susbstitute the nutrients in this Calcium podwer with just food? Thanks in advance, and sorry for my crappy english, not my native language.

Your english is pretty good. What I would do is hide it in their foods for example I’ll make small meat balls and hide fruit or calcium in it for my Argentine tegu and my other lizards but this isn’t common in my collection...try to trick him

The D3 supplement is not vital to these Tegus as long as you feed them mammals (mice, rats, etc.) They will get all of the calcium that they need that way. Also, it is very helpful to have a quality UVB to help aide them with digestion.
