Cuttlefish bone?

I keep a cuttlefish bone ( in my leopard tortoise's tank for him to gnaw on if he wants. He completely ignores it, but today my beardie was exploring and got curious about the tortoise's tank. I let her in to explore, and she spotted the cuttlebone and got really interested in it. She licked it a few times and then bit a couple chunks off it. She seemed to really like it.

I don't want to use it as a replacement for calcium powder supplement (even in the tortoise's tank, I supplement his food), but are there any issues with keeping a bone in my beardie's tank too? Could it end up being too much calcium if she really likes it?

Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
