Oh no, Tigers are like little kitties and cannot even harm the baby, but a tortoise is a meat eating killing machine, weighing like 300kgs, no way that is safe!

Can you not even get them on permit? Good luck with figguring out that logic, as it beats me...

The laws will be changing very soon. You can keep a tortoise, just get a legal captive bred animal and apply for the permit.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

Does that include Exotic tortoises or only indigenous?
