I would never sell or adopt out an animal without making sure I've done all my research on the purchaser. Maybe it's a side-effect from running a rescue for so long, but I certainly care enough about the animals to say no when I think the purchaser is buying/adopting the animal for the wrong reasons; is inexperienced with reptiles (and chooses a high-maintenance pet); etc. I also would never give such a long guarantee if I only owned the animal for 2 days.

If you did "extensively discuss husbandry before the sale" and the buyers still didn't know what they were doing I'd ask to buy the animal back... obviously they're too stupid to absorb any information you've provided them for the proper care and maintenance of this animal.
