    Do we get tortoises other than Indian star here? As we know Indian star is illegal here due to right reasons.
    Anyone knows any other species? Where in India? And approximate price?

    Petting animals in general is an illegal activity, in India.

    Petting any animal isn't illegal here. Petting native Indian tortoise is!

    :) I'm talking mostly from a legal standpoint, wherein if in case anyone wants to harass you. There are enough laws in India to harass you for petting an animal. Would you fall a victim to it is a different question altogether.

    Of the quick search, this link gives a good hint.
