Some more periotic/bulla frags and other associated stuff

Recommended Posts

Well I was looking at Marcos cool post about coprolites and was scrounging thru some of my Manatee Cnty boxed material and didnt find any coprolites so here's several potential whale/dolphin type frags that I'm not entirely sure about and was wondering if any of you all can confirm.

 

I'm thinking A is a root of a maybe a dolphin tooth, B is a bulla of some sort , C is a fragment of some type of fish jaw--seems like I've seen this somewhere before? D and E appear to be anterior processes/ of dolphin periotics. I added a closeup of the end view of A and a closeup of C.

I also found this little guy which is fairly well preserved and has some very distinct symmetry...seems to be a tilly of some sort.

Thanks for any help.

Could D and E be manatee?

Nice finds, Chris, as always! :)
Not much help from my side, more a guess. I'm Wondering if the bulla (specimen B) can't be of a Kogiidae.

 

The tilly bone has a really nice bilateral symmetry. It looks like the ones from this picture:
