What kind of turtle/tortoise/terrapin is this?
He was found in an abandoned house! My best guess is that he is a redfoot but I could be wrong. I need to know what kind of tortoise he is so I can care for him properly! Thanks! hl

I agree; Three-toe female box turtle is the best fit based on the photos you provided. If you plan to keep it, here's some reliable places to read about boxie husbandry, as there are captive requirements that must be met if you want to be successful in the long run (and have a happy healthy boxie):Source(s): reptile keeper for over 21 years

Doesn't matter what it is. you need ot PUT it back or take it to a wild life center so they can put it back into the wild
its very, very illegal for you to own any reptile that you took from the wild

Darby is correct, it looks like a female Three Toed Box turtle.
