It was a land turtle definitely not a red ear slider. They have flat shells this had a sloping shell that tortoises have. I guess it not a eastern box.

This is a pond turtle, likely a Red-eared Slider.

Looks huge for a box turtle.

That's not an eastern box turtle, besides they get no where near that big.
