Adult female panther shedding frequently

My new female has shed twice in three weeks. She's approx 14 months old. Even more odd is the fact that she is full body shedding. When she came to me 5 weeks ago she was wedding her tail and legs as well. That's 3 sheds in 5 weeks?

She seems fine and has a great appetite. She has gained 8 grams with me despite laying a clutch 2-3 weeks ago. This frequent shedding makes me think I should feed more liberally.

Any ideas?

Is it possible that she was underweight when you got her and so is getting a late growth spurt? In my limited experience, every chameleon I've brought home has blown it's skin rather dramatically within a week. I took it as a reaction to the move.

I dunno, she came from reputable breeders. She was passed around a little before I got her though. And she did also have mouth rot prior to receiving her. I think I'm just going to feed her more and hope she doesn't lay a huge clutch.
