I'm no expert on water turtles but, i think its an Eastern Painted freshwater turtle. I am sure Danny will tell us soon for sure.

I would say eastern painted too. I have one and the color patterns match. Thats full size so you could do indoor or outdoors. If it is wild caught it will try to run away so dont just make a backyard pond. I recommend a stock tank. Add about a foot and a half of water and stack 2 cinder-blocks sideways on each other. Then get a large flat rock and place that on top of the blocks, this is his basking spot. Get a 100 watt heat lamp and mount it about 18'' away from the basking spot. If you do this you have a simple easy to clean, indoor or outdoor home for your turtle.
