I can't tell by the picture what kind it is, sorry...
Don't use a heating rock, I used one on my old beardie and burned the crap out of him, poor thing...you need an undertank heater and a heat light up top...that's only during the day, you can just have the under tank heater for night time...also get him some substrate, like garden soil. Tortoises are vegetarians for the most part, so give him some yummy romaine, and some fruits...I they can't eat carrots, so don't give them any...they love kale, parsley, romaine, strawberries, blueberries, etc. If you remember I got to take care of a tortoise at my summer job...;) Make sure if you keep him though that you find someone to identify his species...some are not legal to keep in California...
And no offense, but the best way to tell a turtle from a tortoise is the fact turtles have flatter limbs for swimming, while tortoises have feet used to walk...and they have more domed shells...and they won't die if they are out of water like a turtle would...:P
Let me know if you need any more advice, I know a lot...;)
