In this regard, what is the friendliest breed of tortoise?
Indian Star tortoise Indian Star tortoises (Geochelone elegans) are one of the most attractive tortoises kept as pets due to their beautiful markings. Within captivity, there are rumours about them being a fragile species to care for, however when given the correct setup they can be just as easy as any other tortoise.

Tortoises are long-lived, hearty, and reasonably easy to care for. They are not an ideal pet to keep indoors, and not a pet that is played with, cuddled, or handled very often.
