Default Necturus skulls

Does anyone have any good pictures of the skull of a Necturus? I am trying to articulate one and seem to have "extra pieces"that possibly attach to the vomer?

Hey thanks otter woman, I did try that and could not quite make out the small parts I was looking for in anything I found but I figured it out none the less with some close examination.

Digimorph - Necturus maculosus (Common Mudpuppy)

assuming you've seen this?

I'll admit to being a total bio nerd and browsing their collection. Quite a variety and daresay many animals skulls look quite different from the actual animal!(Necturus has some pretty impressive dentition!)
