Dusting food?
 
i have 2 adult whites treefrogs and an adult beardie i have calcium powder for dusting the crickets i feed them with, but i thought only babys need the calcium for they bones because they are growing. my question is do adults need there food dusted even if the crickets are being gut loaded and they are being fed different types of food?

yes beardies will need calcium supplements their whole life and uv lighting to ensure proper bone growth and to prevent metabolic bone disease

also i'd lightly dust veg as well and crickets etc every other feed
