STRANGE starfish shape. HELP!

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Hi everyone im new to this site so go easy on me lol, I have a question for anyone who can help? My dragon went into brumation at a very early age of about 8 - 9 months and as a result is now a year old and quite small, does anyone think he has missed out on some important growing? My second question is this, he now (after coming out of brumation) lies in his basking spot (and shaded area) in a starfish position! Is this normal? my temps are checked frequently and are correct, he has calcium dust on locusts and his repti sun 10.0 is only 5 months old and is about 10" away from his platform. Please if anyone can help with my questions would be greatful. trying to learn how to get pictures on here as soon as i do i`ll post them..Image

I'm not sure about your other concerns but the way he is laying is 100% normal! We call it the "sexy leg" and if you type it into the forum search you'll get a ton of pictures of other dragons doing it :D

As for the growing, I would guess that with good feeding and return of appetite he will most likely "catch up". :)
