Alright, this is really only a guess for me, but it seemed different than the Florida Red-bellied Cooters that I saw, and this is the only other turtle "like" that in this area that I could find. Can anyone tell the difference for sure from this not so good photo? This was a young turtle, only about 5" or so if that helps.

The shape of the head appears to have the two "cuspids" that distinguish a Florida Red-bellied Cooter.

Description from Wikipedia

Pseudemys is a genus of large, herbivorous, freshwater turtles of the eastern United States. They are often referred to as cooters, which stems from kuta, the word for turtle in the Bambara and Malinké languages, brought to America by African slaves.
