IMHO:
NO. Will not work. I won't reiterate all the good points already made. I have a marginata (the one everyone thinks is a vorax) and a Melleri, one of the most sensitive chameleons. They shouldn't even be in the same line of sight. People say how "hardy" a veiled is, but that's only as far as chameleons go, it's still very easily stressed.
Keeping all the good points made in previous posts in mind: These guys are territorial, and each will claim the cage as his or her own, and no separate sleep schedule will change
the fact that they can smell each other.

I very regularly travel between NJ and Miami and move about once a year with 2 collarded lizards, 2 g marginata, a melleri, a greybanded kingsnake, a thayeri kingsnake, and soon to come, a transpacos ratsnake. I use travel cages. I used to do this in a 98 cavalier coupe, now i do it in an 06 accord coupe. The permanent cages are constructed in such a way that they break down easily for storage. So long story short, it can be done if necessary, but if you can't pack em up, don't pack em together. Never worth the risk of the animal's life for the owner's happiness.

>>As olstyn mentioned, Chameleons are VERY suseptible to stress. I don't own Chams, but everything I've heard about them suggests stress can kill them eventually. Simply being in sight of another Cham can stress them out. Not worth the possible loss to me, but if you try it, know you may lose one or the other. JMHO.
