Does it have any other markings on its head? If so that might help determine what it is.

turtle has yellow stripes along side of his face going in the sam direction as the stripes on either side of the shell. The turtle seems to be getting greener

Good point. Its hard to tell unless you can see the turtle. By the way, I was just browsing the internet and I came across a really good site with close up pictures, with different angles. This could really help someone identify a turtle.
