Chameleon eating dead skin while shedding

Hey guys, so I noticed my little guy started shedding out of nowhere and when I checked him out he was eating pieces of dead skin off his body. Is this normal chameleon behavior?

Thanks!

I dunno about chams, but a number of my lizards would do this,most notably my crested gecko pair,I hardly ever found their sheds and witnessed them eating it on an occasion or 2.

I've seen a cham pull it off and start eating mostly because the shed was in his eyes and not going anywhere... I think he just got fed up with it! Never noticed him eat it on any other occasions, though.
