Question by sara b: What Kind of Turtle Did I Find?
I found a small turtle about 4 inches across swimming in my flower garden pond this morning. It has a dark shell with a few large orange spots. Then underneath it has bright orange and red and green markings. It can get in and out of the pond itself but chooses to stay mostly in the water. He likes to float on top as if sunbathing. If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

    The essential information missing here is where you are.
    This is an international site. We need at least what State/province you are in, and what country.

    i bet a yellow bellied slider. They have the yellow on the shell and the red ear sliders do not. If it is swimming it is not a box turtle because they are a land turtles.
