Thanks Tasha

She looks like an African Helmeted turtle - Pelomedusa Subrufa to me. Very nice turtle.

This is pelusios gabonensis, the Gabon turtle or african forest turtle... easy to identify by the dark stipe down its carapace (it will also have a hinged plastron, whereas the African Helmeted turtle does not)
