Most of the anthropomorphic owners I've met are folks who end up with very sick animals because they think docility equals tameness and contentment when it's often the first sign of illness in a reptile.
Take that with a grain of salt, though. Most of the owners I meet have animals that need surgery since I work as a surgical tech and reptile rescuer, it just so happens that roughly 2/3 of them I'd classify as the anthropomorphic type. So it might be that those types of folks are more likely to miss problems until they become a big deal because they misinterpret the early symptoms.
