Sorry if this is a total faux pas, but I kind of rescued this guy from living in a way too small bowl, but I don't know what kind of turtle s/he is. Can someone help me identify him?

Thanks, guys! Like I said, the person who had him before me had him living in a bowl. She didn't know anything about him and his shell was pretty slimy and gross. He seems a lot happier now.
