My husband and I just bought our 3 year old daughter a turtle. He thinks that it is a painter turtle, I think that it is a red eared slider. (S)he is about 1-1 1/2 inches in lenght (shell). It has the red markings on either side of its head and a smaller one on the top of its head. (S)he seems to spend an equal amount of time in the water and on the rocks and log that we have put in the tank. Could someone please help with an ID?

Red marks on head = Red ear Slider. Good luck.
