Hello, I have two fragments of what looks like turtle shells. The triangular one was found on SW Florida Beach. The rectangular one Tampa Bay, Florida beach and has a curve They both have divisional lines or segments on one side. Is there enough to ID? (4 photos of front and back of 2 fragments) Thanks so much.

The first one is a bone fragment that could be from virtually any tetrapod from that fauna. But I feel pretty confident calling that second one a piece of turtle shell.

Could it be a peace turtle since it has the lines?
