I think map turtles are the cutest things! They dont get big (maybe 3-4 inches I think!), and are very easy to care for. I'm guessing you're talking about red eared slider turtles, and those can get quite big, and need a large enclosure. Thats about all I know about them.

Start by researching online, very few people are going to be willing to type up a caresheet for you when tons already exist. I (and several others on here) have some turtle experience and would be willing to answer more specific questions, though .

I'll start by saying that sliders are poor pets for most people. They get huge and are better as pond turtles IMO.
