These two pieces came out of a dump truck with older Pleistocene material in Venice, FL. Found 5 Lightning Whelk shells in this load.  Large piece of shiny osteoderm has other bones in the matrix. I have not found this type of piece before. ID welcomed.

Looks like a fragment of a freshwater turtle carapace.

Yep, a proximal end of one of the costals. Looks like Trachemys.

I like it still being in matrix! 

 

Here's a couple I have...3 a similar promixal fragment as well as 4 a distal fragment.
