Hi guys, new here, trying not to panic.

I remove the crickets from my bearded dragon's enclosure after feeding, so they don't bite him/disturb him while he sleeps. Sometimes the tongs get a little cricket juice on them after I've caught them. I accidently used these tongs to feed him a worm today (I have another pair that look similar) but by the time I realised it was too late, and he'd bitten the tongs. I'm worried about parasites or anything that could have been on the cricket tongs that could hurt him. He's acting normal, beard is a normal colour not black, and he's still eating but I'm worried any of the cricket blood/juice could make him sick. I'd appreciate any feedback I know this is a weird one.

He should be fine, you can buy dried out crickets at petsmart so i seriously doubt you have to worry about the tongs
