What is this?

What is this?

Or rather, what was it?

Dead sea creature found on the beach of Mount Hope Bay when taking my three biggest grandkids for a walk this morning. These kids love finding dead stuff!

It isn't a quiz. I don't know the right answer.

Surely one of my readers does.

What was once a magnificent life form with its tail cut off. Can't name the creature, but can't get over the impact either.

Looks like some form of dolphin. Either that or an Icthyosaur.

An Icthyosaur! I think you are right. And there must be more in the bay. Living fossils in Mount Hope Bay. And I discovered them. Maybe they will name it Tillyosaurus?

Spinner dolphin

I do think it is a dolphin. But do spinner dolphins come as far north as Narragansett Bay?
