Difficult to properly ID many turtles without more pictures showing plastron and head and neck striping. But here's a good bet from what these pictures show;

1 - Some type of Pseudemys (cooter) Looks most like a Florida red-bellied turtle Pseudemys nelsoni. May be a Red-bellied / river cooter hybrid

2 - Melanochelys tricarinata Three - keeled land turtle, Tricarinate Hill Turtle

3 - Ouachita Map Turtle Graptemys ouachitensis

4 - Melanochelys tricarinata Three - keeled land turtle, Tricarinate Hill Turtle

5 - Common Snapping Turtle Chelydra serpentina

Number 1 is some type of Cooter, number 3 is a map turtle, and number 5 is a snapping turtle. Number 2 and 4 I don't know.

My thoughts:

1. I agree with Mark. It’s probably a Florida redbelly but definitely a cooter of some type. A photo of the plastron is needed.

2, 4: I think these are reeves turtle, Mauremys reevesii.

3. Agree with Mark.

5. Either common snapping turtle or Florida snapping turtle.

2 & 4 could be reeves turtle. Need to see plastron. Coloring with lighter keels a bit unusual for reeves but could be the lighting. Position of lateral keels is a bit more reeves like.
