I live in central fl usa. I ended up with a handful of mali uros about 10 yrs ago. The first few years I had them I kept them inside in the typical manner people keep them. On the dry side hot basking spot etc. They did ok that way. A friend of mine and wy wife both kept trying to convince me to try them outside which I was reluctant to try since beardies tend to crash when the rainy season hits here if you keep them outside and even veiled chameleons which do fine don't seem to like the rainy season so much. I figured uros were much more xeric than beardies and veileds and would hate it.
They did excellent with the exception of the year (2004) that we had 3 hurricanes hit within 6 weeks time including one that stayed over our house for a week. I did loose a few females that year that were ready to lay eggs and apparently did not due to how saturated their substrate was. There were other urgent matters to attend to in light of the situation (3 storms lots of damage and downed trees.) and I did not catch what was happening in time. Apart from that they do excellent here even in the rainy season although if steady rain was expected several days in a row I would cover their cage with plastic until the sun returned. The soil here is sandy and drains very quickly which I am sure helps. They love to burrow so if you are keeping any you may want to consider that with your enclosure. Perhaps keeping them along the lines of how people are currently keeping Savannah monitors or the odatria monitors. They definitely prefer a lot more moisture than I would have ever suspected.
