    I was handling my water dragon. There was a pretty decent size scarlet June Beetle that I didnt know was there until my water dragon jumped, ran SUPER fast, and gobbled it up EASILY. Now I live in Florida so I'm worried it MIGHT have pesticides. I put my dragon under his basking light immeadiatly so it could digest faster. Any advice?

    All you can really do is watch him for the next few days. Pesticides in high enough quantity will make your dragon quite sick, and you'd likely see lethargy, dull eyes, dehydration (or excessive thirst), appetite loss, and possible regurgitation. If any of these symptoms do become present, I would suggest a vet ASAP.

    He should be good then. My reptiles have eaten a few bugs that get trapped in their enclosures somehow and though concerning it isn't something you can prevent 100% so just do your best.
