Default Re: Avocado tree for a creative Viv?

Crested geckos are frugivorous -- they lap up overripe fruit and nectar with their tongue -- and insectivorous. They wouldn't get through an avocado skin (I realize this tree will not set fruit in a viv; I'm just ruling out the possibility), and they don't eat foliage at all.

I keep lots of geckos, and would have no problem exposing a crestie to an avocado tree. I don't suspect it will do at all well in a typical crestie viv (the amount of lighting necessary to even grow such a tree at all well would really stress out a crestie), but that's a different matter.
