I would suggest getting an infrared temp gun if you dont have one. Quessing on temps for temp sensitive animals like Uros is not a good practice IMO. I finally broke down and spent the 25 bucks to get one when I got my first uro and its an awesome and indispensible tool to have. What may feel hot to you may not be hot enough/too hot for the uro. If you know your temps are on target, then it could be a stress issue. Also, add more leafy greens to the diet. My Malis love spring mix. Yours may not be as accustomed to the veggies you are offering and more inclined to the leafy greens like raddichio, baby lettuces, etc. I feel if your temps are good its more than likely adjusting to the new enclosure and checking things out when you are not around.
