Hello everyone I am new here, firstly i hope all of you are doing great. 

I found this Odontocete brain case fragment , I discovered it in a bunch or rocks that were weathering away and based on the nature of these rocks i am convinced they are Globigerina limestone as such the fossil is probably early to mid Miocene in age. After doing my own research and comparisons I have come to the conclusion that it might be brachydelphid or at least delphinoid what do you guys think? I f you have any idea please tell and why.

 Also note that the images are not taken in the true lateral or posterior but rather taken in relation to the bones long axis.

 Thanks

This is from a terrestrial mammal and is pretty clearly not from a cetacean. I also do not think this is from a seal.
