Default Can you paint a torts shell?

I don't want to in the slightest but I just came across a person asking if they could and they got so many answers back saying yes and to use acrylic paints! Some people are absolutely exasperating they shouldn't have tortoises! This is the thing I found Can you paint a tortoise***039;s shell? - Yahoo! UK & Ireland Answers Someone also asked if you could paint their nails it really does make me despair!

I think their shells look great as they are! In my mind their shell is their version of our finger print. It gives them their lovly natral look, i don't understand why anyone would cover up their lovly shells with paint
