One day my husband and I was walking and found this turtle. I don\'t know what type of turtle it is and I was hoping that somebody here would know. It has orange red color on it\'s back and the same orange red stripe on it\'s leg and tail, but the strange thing is that the head has yellow stripes and a yellow dot by it\'s eye on each side of it\'s head. I think he is a river cooter is this correct, and is he a water turtle.

My husband and I found a turtle a couple of days ago also. It sounds like your discription. I think mine is a midland painted turtle. I live in Ohio and was surprise to find it this time of year, but info said that they sometimes lay late in fall then hatch in spring. It is a simi-aquatic. Has to eat under water, but will bask in sun. Mine is eating well. I chop up worms and also got food at pet store. Lots to learn to keep the little fellow happy.
