We found him in a woodsy yard in northern/central Alabama. He has 4 toes on the back feet and 5 on the front, and a yellowish chin. On the underside, his shell is yellow and black.

He is 1 3/8\" wide, and 1 1/2\" long (shell length). He loves to devour earthworms. Here are some pictures:

He\'s(?) cute. Try to identify him at http://www.chelonia.org/bygeography.htm (click on the area where your state is).

that my friend you either have a Xbreed or a turtle mutated by mistreatment or natural selection. If he cowers from you and doesnt give a hissing noise if you poke the top of his head hes either xbreed or birth defect. Notice the giagantic eyes.
