    Been seeing this guy around my yard for about a month now, what kind of turtle is he?

    I know he is not a wood turtle, box turtle, or gopher tortoise but I can’t determine what he is extremely curious to know! He’s about 9-11 inches long and pretty wide, and I live in North Georgia near the Atlanta metro.
