  1. Hi All, It's been a while since I have posted, let alone gone collecting but I just had a really good trip down to the Matoaka Beach Cabins in St. Leonard, MD. Here you can pay $5 ($10 on weekends) to access their beach which gives you about 1/3 of a mile to explore. I went down on Tuesday the 14th since I had some time off from work. It coincided with an extremely slack tide which directly led to many of my best finds. No shark teeth unfortunately, except for two pieces that were just roots with the toothy part broken off. I did however clean up on Ecphora sp. and Cetacean bo
  2. Hi All, Been a while since I've been out collecting but I just got back from a trip to Matoaka Beach Cabins along the Chesapeake Bay. I found an interesting section of limb bone in the surf and would like your opinion as to if it belonged to a land or sea mammal. Found in the surf piles near the cliffs at Matoaka Cottages, St. Leonard, MD. Most likely from Shattuck Zone 17 (St. Leonard Member) or Shattuck Zone 18 (Drumcliff Member) of the Choptank Fm., Miocene, Neozoic. If you need larger versions of any of the pics, let me know. Thanks!

    Part 2: Chesapeake bay.

    Well, this is the last fossil hunting trip that I will be going on for a while now. 2 more months before I’m able to collect again. The bay has always been nice to me, no complete megs this time around but for what the weather was, it wasn’t terrible. The waves were white caps and I could’ve sworn that my inflatable canoe would have sunk underneath the waves had I made one wrong move that day. I persevered anyways having megs on my my mind but when I pulled up to the beach it wasn’t looking good. Now I’m no meteorologist but I’m pretty sure that 2-3 foot white caps smashing against the cliffs
  4. This new site I’m going to is kind of starting to grow on me! I really love the abundance of well preserved shells and the sharks teeth that come out of here (if I don’t break them) are in superb condition. I arrive at this site, however, with some disappointment. Footprints everywhere, and discarded rocks piled in a pile i know I didn’t leave with a bunch of broken shells. It looks like someone took the liberty of smashing rocks with a hammer and leaving the place a mess for others. Not a good look to be honest I always try to clean my area and make it look better than where I left it. The go

    2 inch Meg from an angry bay

    Got out on the bay today. The canoe will need repairs now that it’s been punctured. It’s no longer sea worthy until it gets fixed. Anyways, got out to the Chesapeake today and the low tide wasn’t necessarily all that low. It was unrelenting waves the whole day. There wasn’t much teeth found today as normal but that doesn’t matter. I had a really good day out on the bay despite the large tsunamis. Here’s what all was found: the total round up: The Lower Megalodon is a killer. It’s so perfect there is absolutely nothing wrong with it at all. Always consider finding
  6. Found these in a creek in Maryland. I’m most interested in identifying items 1-4 but let me know if you have any ideas for the rest too. I think 8 might be the edge of a turtle shell because it’s wedge shaped. Item 7 looks like a rib to me.

    Large shells and large owls.

    I decided to go hit up a new creek that I’d had my eyes on for a while. I didn’t know whether or not this would have anything good in it, so I biked there to go find out myself. Let me say, for the 1 1/2 hour I biked to reach this place, I’m really happy with all that I found. I also saw one of the coolest owls I’ve ever seen. It was about 2 and a half feet in size and the color of it was orangish brown and black. I think it was a great horned owl, and it looked like this: It swooped down on a branch about 10 feet in front of me, looked me dead in the eyes,
  8. Hello all! I recently rearranged my collection so I figured this would be a good time to show some fossils! I usually hang-out in the New Jersey Cretaceous but I have been collecting fossils for over 25 years and have found some pretty cool specimens of creatures from many different eras, That said, my collection is mainly focused on the New Jersey Cretaceous, so let's start there. These are my displays for New Jersey Cretaceous non-reptile fossils. My favorites aren't actually fossils at all but rather casts of some of my favorite finds. The crab, Costadrom

    Calvert Cliffs trip 1

    Took my first trip out to Calvert cliffs state park this weekend. Got there as early as I could, which started me at high tide. Beach loaded up with people throughout the day. And from what I saw, nobody else found any teeth. So I consider myself lucky with the hastalis I found. The roots were just barely showing, I think a wave may have just uncovered them. It was a long day round trip from NY but worth it. Also found some scallops.

    Calvert trip

    Hi everyone. Im pretty new here but recently made the trip to the cliffs to see if I could come up with anything. This was my first time actually "fossil hunting" and i think it wont be the last! It was gorgeous out there but unfortunately i didnt find much. Some coral and barnacle fossil fragments and a decent little Ecphora. Bummed that i didnt find any teeth but im glad for my time out on the beach. If I could also pick your brains. I have some private land available to me on the upper eastern shore/delaware, from what i can find all the area was underwater at least since around
  11. This is another rock from the same place I found the bryozoan fossil a few days ago (Kent County MD). The structure looks like it had some sort of biological origin but I can’t make heads or tails of it. It looks a bit like a honeycomb.
  12. I found what looks to me to be a coral fossil in a stream in Kent county Maryland and I would like some help identifying it. I tried to make my pictures as clear as possible but the fossil is really small. If a picture from a different angle would be helpful please let me know. Thanks in advance!
  13. Hi all, New here. I hope I am posting in the right section and that you guys can help me! We have spent a few days in Maryland (US) and I found this thing at the beach. I found it in an area with some fossilized shells in the sand by a muddy hill. It is pretty light and it doesn't look like the shark teeth I have seen in the past. I dont think it is a funny-shapped rock either. Is it something interesting or just an old chicken bone? Any help would be appreciated

    Maryland Eocene shark teeth

    The two shark teeth below are recent personal finds from the Nanjemoy Formation (early Eocene) in Maryland. I'd appreciate any help in ID'ing them. #1: Jaekelotodus robustus? I've been calling this one Jaekelotodus robustus and am curious if that's correct. This tooth measures 27 mm on the slant. #2: Brachycarcharias lerichei? This second tooth has me stumped. I'm leaning toward Brachycarcharias lerichei, but would not be surprised to find out it's s

    Maryland Paleocene sand tiger tooth

    I found the tooth below a couple of months ago at a Maryland Paleocene (Aquia Formation) site. Am I correct that it's Hypotodus verticalis? Thanks in advance for your help! The tooth measures just under 28 mm on the slant.
  16. First I suspect is a worn ray tooth but am a bit thrown by the shape. The second I really have no clue on. Would be very grateful for any help with these. Thanks!

    Tiger shark symphyseal tooth?

    I was going through some of my shark teeth from the Calvert Cliffs (Miocene) in Maryland, and this Galeocerdo aduncus tooth caught my eye due its somewhat unusual shape (not including the fact that it's broken on one corner). I'm wondering if it might be a symphyseal tooth. From reading past forum posts, it seems like there's a range of Galeocerdo symphyseal shapes, from symphyseals that are pretty symmetrical to ones that are less so (such as mine, if it is one). For those more familiar with these teeth than I am, what do you think?
  18. Found this today at calvert cliffs. The only things I could think of that it could be were a juvenile porpoise or crocodile tooth. Anyone have any thoughts?
  19. Made my second ever trip to Calvert cliffs (went to Calvert cliffs state park). The first trip last year was fun, but I didn't really find any of the big shark teeth that I couldn't find near home at Big Brook in New Jersey. This time I did much better. Stopped on the way home from a family vacation and finally got some of the things I'd been hoping for. Still no megalodon teeth, but maybe next time! Got only a small handful of shark teeth, but was lucky to get two very nice hemipristis teeth, one of which was in absolutely stunning condition. Also got so many stingray teeth I star

    Good sites in Maryland

    Hi all, Long time Central Texas area creek hunter here. I've now moved back to Maryland and I'm not quite sure where to take my canoe for fossil hunts, or what creeks are walk/wade-able. I have the area geology in tow, and would like to direct my attention to the cretaceous swath across anne arundel county, but I don't want to get in anyone's way, or launch into a river without hearing some area wisdom first. Thanks!

    Into the Eocene

    Most of my Maryland fossil hunts are at well-known Paleocene and Miocene spots. A few weeks ago, I got an itch to try something new and after studying a state geologic map and aerial photos, I found a potentially promising Maryland exposure of the less accessible Nanjemoy Formation (Eocene). It's an out-of-the-way spot and a lengthy trek along a river from the nearest public access point. As I discovered, it’s also kind of a brutal hike due to the number of downed trees and other vegetation lining the banks, forcing you to mostly travel through murky knee deep and hig

    Douglas Point, MD teeth

    Tried a 1/20 inch sifter to collect sand to take home. Here are my finds.

    Not too bad a day. Sifting for small teeth. Got my third nurse shark tooth today.

    Douglas Point 6-16-21

    Drove down from Jersey to Douglas Point on Tuesday. Only my second time there, and I was worried that I'd make the 4 hour drive and it'd be crowded. Only one car when I got there around 1pm, and another pulled up as I was unpacking my gear. The narrow beach was pretty much open as the first vehicle was a family wayyy down over to the left playing in the water with a raft and the other was a lone fossil hunter hand searching the tide debris line. Beautiful day and I guess my take was pretty much around average for the site. I'm quite fine with that and I look forward to returning. Mo

    Potomac

    Water was high today, but just like this tree, I didn’t give up. Not as many teeth as I usually get. I get distracted. My first tooth of this type.
