It can frequently be seen having fallen from the bushes or trees while chasing its prey, although it will quickly run back into the security of the nearest foliage. The lizard preys on butterflies, moths, dragonflies, flies and other small insect.

This species is generally found in low bushes or hidden in dense trees.

Notes:

To catch its prey, the Green Crested Lizard will generally wait in silence at the top of a tree, or it will rock slowly back and forth as if swaying in the breeze.
