    seems to me that you have a 'Soft-Shelled' Turtle. Soft shells usually have a Distinct Nose Shape like A 'Pig' Nose. And If you need to know what they eat,need,e.t.c. Look and search on the internet to find the right information.

    Softshells are generally not easy to keep in captivity. They require flowing, extremely clean, shallow water with a sand bottom. Their soft shells are prone to cuts and scrapes which often result in infections. If I were you, I would return the turtle to the store, and complain that they sold you a very difficult turtle without explaining proper care.

    Your turtle could be a soft shell turtle, when you buy a turtle at the mall you should ask what type of turtle it is before you buy it.

    It could be a terrapin or a tortoise.
