Does anyone know if males grow slower than females? We have 1 male and 2 females that all are the same age and the females are more than twice the size of the male. I would just like to know if this is normal. I have searched everywhere but non of the info I could find explained it exactly. I appreciate any true info I can find or a website to go to.

Thanks
