Parasites aren't often visible based on my limited experience with them in dragons. Did your dragon poop in the bowl? Or was it just holding water?

Might have just been something that got into the enclosure or perhaps cleaner crew from a food source or something like that. Keep an eye out for lethargic behavior or messy/excessively stinky poops for the next few weeks but I wouldn't worry about it too much.
