Hello,
My kids found a turtle in a lake garden and brought it home. I need to know everything about it, such as its species, how and what can I feed it, which is the best housing for it, how old is it, and so on. I could hardly took this photo of it is while its head is out of the shell because it is extremely shy and it has been too many hours while it is still totally inside the shell.
Please see the attached photo.

Thanks for your reply. I did not know a pet store near to me, so, for the safety of the turtle, I hardly convinced my kids to send it back to garden of the lake. I guess it can find her way home itself :).

I don't see an attachment. Check online for pictures. I have a red ear slider, which i think is very easy to identify. Red stripes along the side of head and a smooth underbelly for sliding.
Good luck!

Yes, we can't help you without a picture. If you can't attach one, even a written description of the turtle (colors, shape of the head, shell patterns...) could do the trick!

I found again a pair of the same kind. I'm sure they are a pair of male and female, because I caught them while they were mating :).
I upload a few pictures on my Dropbox so that you can download and view them. I will be grateful if you can help me and let me know if I can take care of them at home.

It is similar to the red ear slider, but without any red lines on either side of the head or any part of the body.
