What kind of turtle am i?

O.k. I have two turtles and they are the same. They are about an inch and a half long from the tip of the head to the tip of the tail. Turtles this small are illegal where I live because little kids were putting them in their mouths and choking on them. I can\'t take them to a pet store to find out ...
