Check all these websites out -- I have never gotten anything from joshs frogs aafeeder or abdragons- the rest I have ordered from and are pretty good - flukers has the best super worms they are big and healthy but you will need a container to put them in w/ a lid w/ holes and you will need bran for food and feed carrots for hydration -- dubia roaches has the best horn worms - they usually come small and they grow really fast - so order small amounts they are a great hydrating worm- mulberryfarms has the only place for butter worms - they are a nice soft worm -- and have a good deal on the horn worms but I cant feed them fast enough for my two dragons to eat all of them -

Size usually comes down to diet.

How often are you feeding him. And how much?

Dragons can continue to grow for about 2 years, I wouldn't worry about it.

It used to be very common for dragons to not reach full size until 1 and a half to 2 years old.

There has been a major shift in the past 5 years or so in regards to feeding advice and the push to stuff these little growing dragons with as much food as they can. The result is a dragon who is basically full size by 8 months old... the consequences are arguably weaker health in the years ahead.

Provide a healthy diet and a healthy environment and your dragon will be healthy. Size and growth will come naturally.
