Is this a tortoise or a turtle? And what kind of tortoise/turtle is it?
I know very little about this critter... Just barely got it. Pet store said it's a Greek tortoise but it doesn't look like any Greek tortoises that I find on the internet. He's about 3 or 4 inches wide and 7 inches long.

It's a Golden Thread Turtle, an aquatic species. Here's a care sheet that will help you:
Unfortunately, most pet stores are woefully uneducated about the animals they sell. Had you treated that turtle like a tortoise, it wouldn't have lived long. Kudos to you for seeking help!

looks more like a poind turtle or slider than a bod turtle or tortoise. The relatively flat shell is the distinguishing feature. Tortoises and box turtles have dome shaped shells.
