I would say the jump from a ball python to a uro is a BIG jump in terms of care and caging in general. Depending on the size of the species you want, a MINIMUM cage size is four foot by two foot, or even six foot by two foot in floor space for an adult uro. They need uvb lighting and a basking area of 120 degrees or so, and aren't really considered a "lap" pet like a ball python or corn snake. You mentioned a power outage causing the loss of your ball python. I think a similar situation would be even worse for a uro if a long term outage was experienced. Keeping snakes and lizards are like apples and oranges IMO. Snakes are MUCH easier in general to house and feed and meet their temperature requirements. Plus they dont need special UVB lighting.
