    I just bought my mountain horned dragon a few days ago. I had him in my hand and he started to regurgitate. He ate crickets yesterday. His basking zone is 80 F, and the cool side is 74f. The humidity is around 70%. The stuff he threw up looks like the rest of the cricket. he has moving water. Is there something wrong?

    Welcome to the forums.
    If you have only had it a few days then it's probably still settling in and handling has caused the regurge.
    I would leave it alone for at least 2 weeks and only go near for feeding etc.
    Your temps sounds ok.
    This appears to be a good caresheet. Click Here
    If your setup is good then I dont think it's anything serious but keep an eye on him for further regurge problems, if they occur then a vet trip would be a good idea.
    Have a fecal sample checked for parasites etc, these are common in wild caught species.
