First picture is the main part of the skull. That crest is the top of the head.
There are some fish pros on here, one at least that has done a couple of those. Have you tried soaking them in acetone to get any more of the oils out? Use the advanced search and look for mahi mahi skull .. or dolphin skull. Try the scientific name too.
here's the link:
The biggest pair of bones in your picture are the pectoral girdle, and the small narrow pair connect the pectoral girdle to a bone on the back of the braincase. The medium pair are the hyoid bones, they support the tongue and form the bottom of the mounth between the lower jaws. So the first two pairs of bones are not part of the skull, and it a matter of opinion whether the hyoid is part of the actual skull. In the fish skulls I prepare I usually do include the hyoid, but you can also leave it out.
Hope the fellow comes back to check his post at least. Became a member on Dec 21st and hasn't been back since Dec 29th.
I am back Sorry About gave up until Wouter Responded!
Thanks for your help do you have a good picture of a Mahi Mahi skull you have done that I could use for reference?
Don't ever give up. Sometimes, answers take time. Be patient. Wouter is a pro beyond compare with these things ... well, him and Jean-Christophe. Did you look at Jeans post? The link to it was given to you above. Not all of our Pros are in the US and they aren't here every day. Jean-Christophe is in France and Wouter is in the Netherlands. His website is here if you are interested in bird skulls. Every time you refresh it, the picture on the header changes. https://skullsite.com/
Jean-Christophe hasn't been here in almost a year. His work is incredible as well. He has a page here as well as other albums. https://www.flickr.com/photos/galleriejc/albums/
