For those still wondering, it's the skull of Rhineura floridana, the North American worm lizard (printed ~10x real size), one of the weirdest reptiles you'll find in Florida! Here is a picture of the whole articulated skull.

Diving Tip: Choose Sunscreen Carefully. Look for brands with zinc oxide and avoid sunscreens with oxybenzone and sprays that pollute sand where turtles nest. The best way to stay safe is to cover up!
