Found On Peace River Armodilla Or Turtle Shell?

Found these on the peace river today and really unsure if they are armodilla or turtle shell. Lady at the mulberry museum said they were armodilla but really not sure.

The upper right one is suspicously square which tends to be a hallmark of a Holmesina armor plate but it seems rather smooth. Holmesina (armadillo) plates tend to have beveled edges and a more porous looking texture. The rest look much more like turtle to me. If you can post more photos of some you might think are armadillo like we can give you some better IDs.

Cheers.
