Help identifying a turtle

I need help identifying this turtle I found.  Thank you very much

Hello this appears to be either a Texas or Box Ornate
If you found him it may not be legal to keep him depending on your state laws.
If you decide that youre keeping it and it is legal in your state then I will assist you in proper set  up. However since it is wild caught, after you look into the legalities, you will need to take it to the vet so he can be evaluated for worms and parasites etc.

Please make sure that youre not planning on keeping him in that container.
