Found this inside. Cut them out with my pocket knife. So whatever they were,they were either ingested, or grown internally.

Interested to know what you found. My first thought was a gar due to size, but that aint it. I dont think its a turtle at all though.

I'm not seeing turtle shell of any kind. Maybe the pelvic girdle to something...

The Cranial Ridge made me think Klingon.

Never heard of a Gaspergoo. Off to Google to learn about it
