But perhaps his favorite is avocado.
He seems comfortable and thriving in his home, as I get better at maintaining the temperature and humidity he needs.
Some people have fed avocado fruit to their tortoises in small amounts with no adverse effects. As a precaution I suggest not feeding avocado at all. It's not a cheap fruit nor is it really beneficially to continue feeding it to your tortoise. Save them for yourself.
