Lovely day, good friend, interesting finds.

1st of three. A small tooth. To me, this has the shape of marine mammal or alligator, more likely first based on enamel. No horizontal banding means not whale, but could be dolphin. However a very odd root core.

2nd up is an enamel cap. In mammal tooth development, the enamel forms first, followed by the root. In the event of death, the root is never added.  These are rare. Possibly based on cap ridges, a slight preference for Hemiauchenia macrocephalus or Hemiauchenia gracilis. Comments appreciated.

Finally, the 3rd is a tiny bone.. I am thinking turtle.  @Plantguy might be able to confirm or eliminate.  This one is 13 mm in length and 10 mm wide
