Nekton Rep 35 gm. A highly valuable vitamin and mineral supplement enriched with amino acids for reptiles and amphibians.

The diversity in today's herps means a great difference in their feeding habits. Most amphibians are carnivorous while reptiles can be flesh eaters, plant eaters or omnivorous (eating both plant and animal foods) depending on their species. No matter what form their nutrition takes, however, the most decisive factor is its components. The basic necessities in nutrients have been taken into account when formulating NEKTON-REP.

The large proportion of vitamin A (retinol) it contains is extremely important for forming the skin and mucous membranes of reptiles and amphibians. An adequate supply of calcium is also important, especially to insect-eaters as this element is usually missing in the chitin cuticle or skeleton. NEKTON-REP therefore contains a high percentage of calcium together with vitamin D3 to aid the adsorption of calcium by the animal's body. But it is the harmony and balance of the formula that make it one of the most beneficial supplements for reptiles and amphibians. Each vital substance is dosed and blended to complement and promote the other thus strengthening the entire organism.

Aids healthy bone growth. Promotes smooth skin sloughing. Helps formation of healthy skin and mucous membranes. Click here for complete product details in PDF format.


NEKTON-REP is a powder supplement completely soluble in cold water and simple to use. It enables the animal owner to choose a way of administration most suitable to his pet's feeding habits. Following methods can be used:


This is the simplest way. NEKTON-REP can be mixed with the reptile's plant or meat food: E.g., Tortoises - scatter a pinch of NEKTON-REP over chopped or shredded lettuce leaves after wetting them slightly. Turtles - knead NEKTON-REP into finely chopped heart and form tiny balls that can then be fed by means of tweezers.

Similarly, various pieces of meat dusted with NEKTON-REP can be given in this manner. It is enough to dust just one or two pieces of meat with NEKTON-REP.

If the animals are fed on live fodder, it is better to dissolve the NEKTON-REP powder in water and inject this under the skin of the animal used as fodder. In the case of insect-eating reptiles and land amphibians put the dose of NEKTON-REP powder into a jar, let the insects in and shake the jar. The insects are then covered in NEKTONREP and can be fed to the animal as usual.


This method is quite simple as NEKTON-REP is soluble in cold water and thus guarantees a full and reliable supply of vitamins and trace elements. For land reptiles add 1 gram NEKTON-REP to a water ration of ¼ litre and this meets the animal's vitamin needs completely. Use fresh water every day. At the beginning remove all other drinking vessels so that the animal is forced to use the one containing the vitamins. In time you will find your pet prefers the water with NEKTON-REP to its normal drinking water.


Amphibians living mostly in water can absorb the vitamins through their skin or by swallowing the water. As a guide we recommend a measuring-spoonful (1 g) to 30 liters water (about 7 U.S. gallons).


Due to the variety of reptiles and amphibians it is impossible to recommend an exact dose and we leave it up to the owner to decide on the best amount himself. It depends very much on how much nourishment the animal takes per day. The enclosed measuring spoon is for your convenience. It holds 1 g.

Store in a cool, dark and dry place. In an unopened container and correctly stored the vitamins in NEKTON-REP remain effective until date of expiration, see extra label.

Please note:
Because of this supplement's higher content of vitamin D and trace elements than in a complete feed, it may only be added to 10% of a reptile's daily ration.
