Hey Reptar, I'm in Richardson. I'll pm you my phone if you want to come by and grab a few dubias. Got a few silkies you can try too.

You can order silkworms, hornworms, butterworms, etc. from online vendors. There are very few places you can get them without ordering them - I've never seen them anywhere. Hornworms grow really fast and may outgrow your cham's ability to eat them pretty quickly. Silkworms are difficult to keep very long. Butterworms are little orange blobby worms that can be refrigerated and don't need to be fed or anything. Those are really high in calcium too. They wiggle around and my chams love em! Mulberryfarms sells them, along with a few other vendors and I think there are some in the calssifieds from a forum member too. That's where I'd start.
