:Although tortoises can seem to have personalities, they do not have a high enough brain function to need companionship, other than to procreate. If you want another tortoise and can take proper care of it, by all means get one. But your's will do very well without ever seeing another toroise.IMHO

IMHO, I do not see how anyone can say that a tortiose does or doesn't need company. Were there tests to show that they have small brains and that they have no feelings?

Torts have feelings. They can be happy. They can be sad. They can feel pain. They can get scared. And they get lonely.

Every living creature has feelings. And most of them are smarter than what most humans think. That is my opionion so I will be quiet now. :-)
