Its normal. some say they do it because they are missing something in their diet, others say its just cuz they can. no worries

Wow, I have never read about a Cham eating his own shed... I know some species of geckos do and have seen my Crested and Tokay geckos do it. Sorry, don't know what t tell ya' other than it's gross thinking about eating your own shedding skin, lol!:)

It's pretty common. I suspect it stems from a desire to hide his presence. Nothing says "hey, there's a reptile around here" like a big hunk of shed skin.
