I live in Arkansas, and there are turtles everywhere, well 2 weeks ago I found one and brought it home, yesterday she decided to lay an egg, I have pictures of this and I am not sure if it looks ok, she has only laid one since yesterday, I am worried, and on top of that I cant find anywhere on the net what kind of turtle this is, so therefor not sure how to care for her, we have her in a kitty pool right now.

she fits in the paml of my hand, had large gold spots on her head and arms only

the url to see her pics are at
