DO NOT wake your Uro. Double check your temps just to be sure. They do brumate and may not come out and be very active for most of the day. Currently my mali's are out for maybe an hour each day. Sometimes they don't even leave the spot they are in all day. They will come out, find a spot in the warm area near the basking bulb, and lay there all day and not move.

You should also get (if you dont have already) a good gram scale to track his/her weight. You want to make sure there is no parasite or worm infestation during this time causing loss of weight. If the Uro starts losing weight and you have not changed temps/light time then you may want to schedule a vet visit.
