: I found a baby turtle today. It is just bigger than a quarter, brown in color, 4 dark brown humps down the middle of its back with patches of yellow-orange in color.
: I live in Middle Georgia.
: The turtle has not eaten since I found it and it looks like it is sleeping all of the time.
: Does anyone know what type of turtle this is and how do I care for it.
It sounds like you may have found a baby Eastern Box Turtle (Terrapene carolina carolina).
Babies love to eat insects of all types and Earthworms. Good Luck!!!
