New to the turtle world. What kind of turtle do I have. He is half dollar size. I have had him about eight months. I am very interested in learning all I can about this little guy. He has some red streaks on the sides of his head. I want to make sure I am caring for him properly and the local pet stores do not offer much help

Red streaks? Then you\'re the proud owner of a baby Red Eared Slider! Make sure you have a large enough aquarium with all the works, a RES ain\'t no goldfish!

Yup! Just what human177 said. Congratulations and make sure you read everything you can get your hands on! Oh, and one more thing - TURTLES LIE! They tell you they are hungry even after you have just fed them, they will swim frantically near the edge of the tank and lie like a rug!
