Hi Linny,

Donīt worry.
When you feed them fresh greens, they will not get dehydrated. At least not if they are healthy.
Uroīs are very effective with the fluids in their food (and body). They have evolved to be able to live in very dry regions and they loose fluids as little as possible. So their poop is only a bit moist when they drop it and dries very quickly thanks to the dry terrarium.
That is also the reason why they belch out salt through their nose. This costs them almost no fluids. We humans have to urinate to get rid of the salts.

Greetings from the Netherlands
