    Douglas Point Mollusk

    Interesting shell found at Douglas Point, Maryland which should be Paleocene Aquia Formation. Didn't see an obvious match anywhere online, any ideas?

    Heterodontus?

    I was going through sand from Douglas Point, MD (aquia). Maybe this is heterodontus or maybe I would just like it to be? It is 7mm across.
  3. Going through more sand at home. Lots of fish teeth. Most broken teeth I didn’t bother with.

    Aquia Shark Teeth

    Hit the Aquia Fm at Douglas Point, MD on Sunday and found some beauties. I am really unfamiliar with Paleocene sharks and wondered if anyone wanted to help ID some of these. The one I'm most interested in is the small one on the left pointing outwards. Sorry for the lack of scale - the biggest aren't much longer than a cm. Thanks!

    Pachygaleus lefevrei or Galeorhinus

    Here are 8 teeth from Douglas Point, MD. Aquia Formation. Thought I’d get opinions. The first 6 are around 5.25 mm. The last 2 are 2 mm. I have 75 more to go through and decide on ID.

    Aquia micros 2

    Finished searching the three bags I brought home. Was curious if it was worth bringing sifted sand home. I believe it was worth it now. I’m sure I missed some teeth. I didn’t put a ruler next to the small teeth, because it was mostly useless. The majority of the teeth were round fish teeth that were brown or black. Also found were fish teeth blades, fish verts, fish bones, ray teeth, and various shark teeth. To prevent having too many teeth, I usually don’t keep broken teeth

    Aquia micros

    Brought sifted sand home to go through. Finally going through some. Still have a lot to go. Mostly find round fish teeth. Some of the tiniest teeth I’ve found to date. Using microscope for pics.

    Vertebra from Aquia Formation

    I’m guessing sea turtle, since it doesn’t appear to be snake or croc?
  9. Took the relatively short trip down to Purse State Park last weekend and had quite a bit of success! Best find was certainly a fairly large chuck of what I think is turtle shell, along with a very much alive turtle that rested with us for our lunch before returning to the water. The dream of finding anything marine mammal or a somewhat complete ray plate remains for next time!

    Shark Tooth from Purse State Park

    Hi everyone! I tried this one on the FB group without any luck, hoping for some ideas here. This was found in Purse State Park (now Nanjemoy WMA, I think) on the shoreline, which I've read is Paleocene in age. This is by far the most interesting tooth I've found there so far, but I haven't seen an obvious match in any of the guides I've looked at. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Aquia Formation Croc Tooth ID

    Yesterday, I found what I think may be a little Pristichampsus tooth. It is from the Aquia formation on the Virginia side of the Potomac. It looks unusual for a croc tooth for being so laterally-compressed. I can't tell whether it ever had serrations at the base. They may have worn off but there are no obvious ones. Also, this tooth would match the short piece of juvenile croc jaw I found elsewhere in the Aquia last year which had a similarly-shaped (unerupted) tooth. Any thoughts?

    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,
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. It's been a long while since I've had the opportunity to go hunting - indeed, trips have been far and few between. But the few I have had have been lucrative. There's been quite a bit of new material, ending up with some new finds (for me, at least.) One of these was a complete ray mouth plate. A couple Otodus jumped into my hands as well, including this perfect one, about an inch. The wildlife was out in full, including a dog that must have been born into the hobby Thanks, FA
  16. This riker mount displays the best shark teeth that I collected on 3 hunts sifting at Douglas Point beach, Charles County, Maryland. This is the Paleocene Aquia Formation. Bottom row contains several Odotus teeth. There are many goblin shark Anomotodon and sand tiger shark Carcharias. Also appears to be one pygmy white shark Paleocarcharodon in lower left corner.

    Mystery jaw - Maryland Potomac

    Found this cool little jaw fragment last week on the Potomac in a section that has mostly Aquia paleocene exposure but also has some eocene and miocene. There is a very tiny unerupted tooth in one of the sockets which I hope will help with ID. It's hard to get a good image but the tooth looks flattish with a rounded tip, not conical and not pointy. Any ideas?
  18. I was going to do some more exploring of new areas (trying to find a Calvert exposure until I can get the boat in the water since everything’s closed) but I decided to go back here yet again. I made a pretty good decision I think because I found a bunch of shark teeth that are of decent size, and a killer shark and fish vertebrae. I also found a small block of Calvert formation here too, and I found a lot of it exposed on another piece of land a few weeks ago, but then turned around after seeing a bunch of “no trespassing” signs posted all up and down. Go figure. So until I find anot

    Best day yet on the creek!

    This is from a two day trip to the same creek. The first trip I found some clues that there may be big teeth here due to the large ray plates I found (the first day was mostly rays so you can tell them apart kinda). I found a few small shark teeth and I called it a day. The next morning, I set out for the creek yet again and I knew I made a good decision because I was going to explore a new place. Sometimes it’s good to explore something uncharted another day. I found a lot of teeth including this beauty that tooth was absolutely flawless and came right out the formation. I found a lot more sh

    Aquia ID Help

    Recently took a trip to Douglas Point and found this odd shaped piece in matrix. Not sure if it is anything or just some sort of concretion, appreciate any help! Thank you

    Reptile leg bone ID

    Need help ID’ing this leg bone. Is it a crocodile or turtle? I’m thinking right Humerus. Thank you for all your help Matt Aquia Formation, Paleocene, Maryland
  22. I was out kayaking on a creek on the Virginia side of the Potomac today to do some birdwatching, but in an area I thought might have some Aquia exposure. I did come across one small bluff face, with maybe maybe 40 feet of narrow beach, that I stopped to check out. After about 2 minutes, I looked down and found this guy. My best Otodus so far and still razor sharp! I did find a few more much smaller teeth and a decent ray plate fragment, but nothing special the rest of the day. But this tooth--plus dozens of herons, ospreys, eagles, and purple martins, among other birds--made for an awesome

    Help with Potomac shark teeth IDs

    Hi, I made a few visits earlier this spring to the Potomac (Aquia formation) in Maryland and collected a bunch of shark teeth, most of which look like Striatolamia striata with quite a few likely Hypotodus verticalis as well. I'm hoping to confirm my IDs of a few potential Otodus obliquus and Cretalamna appendiculata teeth as well as get help identifying some others. The teeth in question are below--I'll include composite photos from different angles in reply posts. I've currently categorized teeth #1-3 as Otodus obliquus, #4-6 as Cretalamna appendiculata, and #9-14 as Hypotodus ve

    Purse State Park 3-22-20

    I got to Purse a couple hours before low tide and got a good 5 and a half hours of searching. Managed to scrounge together over 1,000 teeth, most of them pretty small, a new personal best. I didn't find anything of significant size, but a handful of oddities/rarities. One such oddity was what looks like a Carcharhinus (Gray/Dusky Shark) of some sort. Perhaps some folks came to Purse following a hunt at Westmoreland or some other place and a tooth slipped out of their bag. This is a first for me. I found a worn down palaeocarcharodon with some nice dark blue coloration, some crocod
  25. We've had a couple nice hunts in the Aquia recently. Our first trip was really nice. The weather was beautiful and the tide was low. The only finds of note from this trip were two shark vertebrae and a small yet pristine transitional otodus. As always, we found over a 100 teeth in the gentle shallows. Our second trip was incredibly productive, albeit with fast moving water and a high tide on a beach ravaged by storms. We found what I think is a turtle washing out of a recent fall; I was unable to spot the rest of the turtle in the fall, however we were able to grab five pieces of mat
