Housing a gecko and chameleon together?

I have a seperately housed Geyhra vorax gecko and a veiled chameleon in my house currently. I'm moving out of my parents house in the next month and only have the option of bringing one cage along. I can't decide which one to give to my aunt, who owns a pet shop.

My question is, can I build an arboreal screen cage about 4.5ft tall with 2 ft widths to house both animals?

The gecko is nocturnal, so he would only come out when the chameleon is asleep, and vice versa. I would design the cage with a heated hiding spot on the floor, and many arboreal bark hiding spots along the walls. It would have a daytime heat lamp/UV light, and a night time purple nocturnal heat lamp to keep the heat up through the winter months.

For feeding I currently use crickets for the chameleon and yogurt for the gecko, even though the gecko loves crickets, it doesen't work to feed them in his current cage. In the new cage I could easily drop in 20-30 crickets, let the chameleon eat his fill during the day, and let the gecko finish them off at night.


Would this work?!

ps. sorry for the wall of text heh
