The benefits to reptiles include: easy digestion from CCF in powder form which remains stable for months provided that the container is sealed and also provides a suitable protein source which counters the hypoproteinaemic states of catabolism and administering CCF to reptiles every 4-5 days is generally sufficient with extra fluids that can be given with AVIPRO or REPTOBOOST.
