unknown fossils

Hello,

These fossils and bits of bone were given to my daughter, who is a budding junior paleontologist, as the owner didn't know what they were. We were told that they were dinosaur/prehistoric reptile but other than that we don't know much and we were hoping someone might be able to give us a clue. We were told that the scales might have been from a prehistoric crocodilian of some kind, maybe. Thanks in advance, Andrea (and Anna.)IMG_1414.JPGIMG_1416.JPGIMG_1417.JPGIMG_1419.JPGIMG_1423.JPGIMG_1422.JPGIMG_1421.JPGIMG_1420.JPG
