There are many aspects to their natural history. There are certain instances when normally non-social animals will congregate. You cannot see something like this one time and say they communally hibernate. I have found 3 male chuckwallas under the same rock but that does not mean they like each others company. In fact I did not know there were more males under the rock until I released the one I cought on a rock close by and another shot out to attck it tehn a third shot out to join the brale. It was pretty funny but the fight was serious and they soon scattered. It is said in times of drought they will not be as aggressive toward one another in gaurding territories . It may just be a species survival strategy. Also remember lizards in captivity do not act as they would in the wild. I have kept male chucks together for years then one day walk in and find a bloody mess in the cage.
