While my dad was doing yard work today he came upon this little guy. I plan on releasing him tomorrow, but I want to see if I can find out what kind of turtle he is so I can find a spot appropriate for him that is less populated by humans. For example, does he like land or water, or both?

I'm not sure of the species, but there are certain ways to tell whether it's a turtle or a tortoise and therefore whether it likes land or water.
Does he have webbed hind feet? I can't quite see in the picture.
Also, try feeding him meat if you can. Tortoises are herbivores while turtles are omnivores and may accept meat.
He's adorable, I hope you can find a good new home for him!

Aww! Like IceFyre1414 I don't know the type but if you're interested in telling male from female, females have longer tails and shorter claws while male have shorter tails and longer claws.
