I agree, homework should be done before acquiring a new pet. Especially one requiring specialized temperatures and caging requirements such as a uro. However, we have all learned from mistakes. Haven't you ever purchased a reptile based on impulse and wasn't really sure of its proper care? Granted, some species can a take a few more days or weeks of improper care than a uro might be able to with no harm done to the animal. These forums are designed to inform the folks asking questions. No one even asked if the person was achieving proper temps in the cage, feeding proper food items, or even asking if the uro seemed to be adjusting properly. All I read were negative statements off the bat regarding the perceived inadequacy of the cage. They may be achieving spot on temps, the uro eating like crazy and loving its new cage, and everything is perfect in terms of maintaining the new pet. If thats the case, suggesting the cage is inadequate would then be false.
