Well that tail looks very small, and bit off somewhat? Its a female. As for what it is should be a 3-Toed Box Turtle. Count how many toes on the back leg. =P

It look like it is a male three-toed box turtle. Judging by the eye colour. I have a male that look just like that and I am sure its a male because I seen the man parts! hope this helps
