  • I possess a sea heart (large drift seed of the legume Entada gigas) picked up in the 1990's on Grand Cayman Island, that has 2-3 separate bite marks consistent with the tooth rows of the boto. This I deduced by comparing dentitions of dolphin skulls housed at the Florida Museum of Natural History. The seed evidently was carried north from a river/estuary in the Gulf Stream in South America and deposited on the beach to be found by a colleague of mine.
