Wrote all that crap and I forgot to mention to the guy that has the sick uro..."GOOD LUCK!!! I hope your uro gets better" no matter what the outcome.

Actually its not that different, I guess I find it easier. I cage size is larger, but if you can always found a good deal on a large cage. I have an argentine black and white tegu, and he has the best temperment and is super smart. The cost to feed him is the best part! I HATED looking for damnnn assortments of vegetables for my old uro, I felt that I was worrying about what it was eating more than myself...Tegu food is easier, I feed him mostly pinkies and breeding mice is super easy and take no time like chopping up vegetables everday, that is definitely something I am glad I'm not doing.
