I bought one recently at a local flea market and the man said that it is a Louisiana soft shell turtle....i've been looking on the internet for more info on it but can't seem to find any, I live in Florida and was wondering if its really a Florida soft shell.

Its a hatchling about 2 inches, it is dark brown and has little black spots on the shell and has yellowish and orangeish markings on its neck and by its eyes.
I was planning on putting it in an outside pond when it gets bigger and was wanting to know a little more about it...

I would appreciate any help....thanks, jennifer
