Had a number of turtles and a couple tortoise and loved them all. They are long lived, even social.
To me, worth the expense and effort to properly care for.
My desert tortoise was a rescue I had for 13 years, followed me everywhere, had to give him up, but the girl that got him, still has him, last word was doing just fine and that makes him over 50 years old.
If I could, yes, I would keep them again.
