This upland species of lizard ranges no lower than 1,000 m asl, and is associated with dipterocarp forests. Lizards are occasionally seen during the day on the sides of small trees in dense undergrowth, usually no more than two metres above the forest floor. The Titiwangsa Horned Tree Lizard has been collected for commercial purposes for small local zoos (L. Grismer and E. Quah pers. comm. 2017).
