    I was handling my water dragon when I saw a litttle anole running and jumping in my room. My water dragon actually saw it before I did and jumped from my hand,ran up, and gobbled him quickly. What do I do now? I immediatly placed him under my UVB light to digest it. What do I do now? Pray the anole had no parasites? It did look healthy as it was very active and was brightly colored.

    Well the UV light isn't the one that helps digest they need the heat for that;). However I wouldn't worry about parasites unless he starts acting different. If you are concerned about it then you can take a fecal sample to a vet and then in 2weeks take another one.
    But honestly unless there are underlying health problems or the dragon is under a lot of stress then their immunity system will take care of the parasites and keep them at a manageable level.

    No problem. I have had lots of various reptiles end up eating wild lizards and other bugs and so far I havent had any parasite issues.
