Unidentified metapodials

Recommended Posts

I found these two metapodials while diving in South Florida. They are not fossil.  But I'd like to identify them for placement in the reference collection.  Hoping they are a native marine animal (manatee, cetacean, sea turtle).  Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

 

Scale is in cm (or about 3.75 inches long)

These  are fairly common finds diving in south Florida. Pigs are used in crab traps and their bones often turn up while looking for fossils.

That makes sense.  Thanks very much. These will go in the reference collection.
