That looks like a Wooly Bear Caterpillar and is probably not safe to feed your cham due to the setae (long, thick, furlike hairs) which could become lodged in the tongue or throat & cause major issues - BUT - if you catch and keep them till they hatch out as the Isabella Tiger Moth you could feed the moths to them.
