You don't need a light at night... to up temps at night, use a MegaRay Heat Projector or Ceramic Heat Emitter. Uro's can see lights at night and it will disrupt there sleeping.

Uro's are STRICTLY VEGETARIAN, no bugs, no crickets. Also, Romaine lettuce has no nutritional value at all, if you can, remove it. Carrots are high in sugar and should be limited. Other staple greens besides Curly Endive include Escarole and dandelion leaves. If you want to add more rotational foods, try grated squash and/or zuchinni, bell peppers (all colors), cilantro, soaked lentils and soaked lima beans. You can also give them pesticide free flower like pansies, hibiscus, nasturtiums and dandelion flowers, but these are mostly treats only and shouldn't be given too often.

As for the vet, call around to other vet clinics, there is a list of vets at www.repticzone.com. You may need to travel a bit farther from home, but its better to spend a little more in gas to get a good Reptile Vet.

Good Luck with her.
