It looks like you have a red eared slider or a painted turtle. Both need the same care.
Before taking my advice, check to see if your turtle has webbed feet. If so, he is a aquatic turtle.
He/she will need a tank at least 20 gallons long depending on the size of your turtle. The water level should be atleast the length of the shell, more if possible... they love to swim. The turtle will need a dry land area to climb up on to bask. You will need to get a basking light and a UV light (reptisun 5.0 is most popular). The water temp should be 75-85 degrees, and basking area should be 80-90 degrees.
The turtle will need a varied diet: feeder fish, mealworms, crickets, cooked chicken, apples, romaine lettuce, carrots, and lots of other stuff you can read up on. They are very picky, so try again and again introducing different food to him. I hope that I helped give you a good head start.
