All three of the Suriname's you see in the other picture are roughly the same age and comparable in size. (w/ the exception of the female) They have all been housed together since day 1.
I've raised quite a few horned frogs (and other types) in the past 20 years and have only ever had one incident of cannaibalism. However, in the juvinile stage, horned frogs are much more agressive in their eating habits and will pounce on anything that moves.
Most people wouldn't recommend it, but through my own personal experience, I've found that small numbers of "WELL FED" juviniles can be housed together w/ little or no incidences. Be warned though, this is not a fool proof method and the only sure way to prevent casualties is to keep them seperated until they have grown at least to sub-adult or adult size and are able to fend off a would be snacker.

Bicardi,
A quick search on the internet should provide results on where to buy a Suriname.
You could also do a search for reptile shows in your area. This is the season and they should have already started popping up all over place.
Surinam's are a little harder to come by than most and are a little pricey as horned frogs go, but if you want one and cannot seem to locate a seller, send me an email and I'll see what I can do to help.
