"I picked my first HLs up just as you did, and played catch up on their care."

This should not be held up as a standard to emulate, regardless of your individual success with them. Most people reading you are not going to have the same means and resources, and most do not live in Az. Even a blind squirrel may find a nut from time to time. It is not evidence that blind squirrels are very successful at finding nuts however. Two engineers should certainly know better. This unprepared approach to getting into reptile ( or HL ) keeping should be discouraged. That's just exotic pet 101 I'm afraid. Talk to any known reptile authority, rehabber, or rescue shelter.

"I was successful by any standard..."

Unless of course your standard ever included "conservation", which to the masses you have not been a success at encouraging.
