    Hi and welcome!

    I'm not good at I.D.ing the water turtle species. I'll send a shout-out to @Markw84

    You found that in a pond near your home? Is this legit or are you kidding us? That sure looks like a very rare, and critically endangered species known as the Annam leaf turtle - Mauremys annamensis. It is native to a small area in central Vietnam, but virtually extinct in the wild.

    @Markw84 She says the turtle in her pond is LIKE the turtle pictured. I think she took a picture off the 'net that sorta, kinda, looks like the picture of the turtle in her pond.

    @alice2911 We need to see the actual turtle, not a picture off the 'net.
