Uh oh, sounds like you fed a Lubber grasshopper and those ARE poisonous.

This is a page about Lubber grasshoppers:

This is a picture of what the young ones look like:

That one has a yellow stripe, but the stripe can be yellow, orange or even almost red.

Unfortunately, not much you can do now but wait. BUT yeah, definitely don
