Yes, it is important to add calcium to your turtles diet. I give my box turtle, turtle bone from zoo med, not only is it a great source of calcium and easy to find, but your turtles chewing on it will keep it's beak from over growing.

i agree....your tortoise NEEDS calcium to LIVE!!! the powder is great...just put you (ex) dandeloin leaf in the foucet to wash it and sprinkle the powder on the leaf, it will stick! a cuttlebone is good too because tortoises love to chew on things but i have a cuttlebone and my tortoise never chews on it because of the i soak it in a safe reccomended vegie juice and now he loves the calcium cuttlebone!! :) hope i helped ya!!
