We live in Syria and have been given a baby turtle to care for. It is brown, it has a few black spots on its shell. The bottom of the shell is light brown. It\'s skin is all brown too. I imagine because of where we live, it is a land turtle. The folks who gave him to us said to simply feed it lettuce but it hasn\'t eaten any of it yet. I would like to give it proper care. Can anyone help?
