 Strange question but .. do tortoises give off a scent that other animals can maybe pick up but we don't smell?

Yes, they do, my Standard Poodle tracked Wizza across two fields over thirty years ago and retrieved him from the bottom of a large tree where he had dug in following being ploughed by a tractor. My present dog can sniff out a tortoise poop from yards away but I doubt she would be interested in finding a tortoise lol

Love all my dogs, but will never have another as intelligent as my Amber.
