Ok, I found a turtle, its a water turtle, it has Claws, the shel is Black/red its about 10-12 inchs long, 5-6 inchs wide, it seems pretty friendly, I have to get some food for it tomorrow, I\'m not really sure what it eats though, I tried a cricket (the only thing I had at the time) didn\'t eat it, and I also tried some sinking fish food, didn\'t eat it, so i really need to know what type of turtle this is! here is some details that i can make out:

Black shell, with red markings
I am pretty sure it is a water turtle, it has webbed feet, with claws
the claws are about a half inch long
(s)he is about 10-11 inchs long,
I live just a but from a pond (quite a distance still) it was walking in the middle of the road so i picked it up, I originall had a red slider turtle, but i had it in the back yard, and it escaped, never seen it since, I was thinking that maybe this is a red slider too.

If you found a water turtle near an area that may be its home, the best thing is to put it back where you found it. If it is a wild turt and not an abandond pet you should not make it your pet. There are plenty of turtles in pet stores that need good homes!!!
