yes yous kids will be save. the only real danger is if you don't wash yours and the kids hands after touching the tortoise , if you dont wash after touching the tortoise can get a sickness witch i actually cant remember the name of lmao......but that's a serious sickness but is easily avoided but just washing hands every touching your tortoise , it will take awhile of touching and not washing before you get sick but just to be save wash away ;)

Any animal with children will need to be closely supervised. A tortoise has strong jaws and can do damage.
