He is 5 1/2 months old and is 17" long and weighs 151 grams just wondering if that is about right for his age

He looks great , growing fast , long + lanky like a teenager. :) He'll fill out as he gets older. How much does he eat every day ?

Normally 12 to 16 superworms
7 to 10 dubias
And his kale and carrots
He really prefers the superworms over the roaches some days he won't even touch the roaches just wants more worms

Hi there,

Agreed, he looks a healthy size for his age :)
You might consider limiting the superworms a bit more to encourage him to eat more of his dubias and salad :)

He eats a good amount of salad
Is the dubias that much better for him than the superworms?

The superworms aren't bad, I feed them too, but in high quantities they can be. They contain a lot of fat, so it's typically best to limit the supers as to not introduce too much fat into the diet.

I like to stick to 5 a day max.
