    Brownie’s Beach NO TRESPASSING?

    I haven’t been to Brownie’s Beach in a while and thought I’d take a day trip. When double checking my route online I notice some tv news stories about a cliff collapse there in January that the fire department responded to. No one was hurt, and looking at drone footage afterwards the beach seems to have way fewer collapse piles than last year. So I didn’t think too much of it and showed up there this morning. Once I made a right at the water after walking down the trail, I was greeted with a large sign saying; Danger unstable cliffs ahead. Any persons beyond this point will be co
  2. Here is a brief report from one of our latest forays into Calvert County, MD. The well-known stretch of shoreline along the western Chesapeake Bay is loaded with Miocene fossils, with the Calvert, St. Mary's, and Choptank formations progressively exposed along a ~24 mile stretch of beach and cliffs. We found an Airbnb in Lusby, MD which was not too far from Matoaka Lodges, which seemed the best bet since the nearly 2 mile walk to the beaches at Calvert Cliffs State Park is impractical for our family at this time. Covid-19 and Maryland's onerous private land regulations can make it
  3. Yesterday (January 2nd) was only my second trip to Calvert Cliffs. I'm pretty new to fossil collecting, but thanks to the wonderful advice and reading the greatly informative posts from members such as @Darktooth @FossilsAnonymous @WhodamanHD @racerzeke @KimTexan and @paxhunter I had a lot of success and it was a much more productive trip than my first. Below is a brief summary and some pictures of what I found: I woke up, put on a few layers clothing, and had my coffee at 3:45am. After my morning pipe (tobacco...I actually make briar tobacco pipes as a hobby) I got in my pre-loade
  4. Hello all! On Sunday, I realized that Monday would be an amazing day to go shark tooth hunting so I took the chance and went. I arrived at Bayfront park at 8 am and did not find anything significant. I found small teeth, some petrified wood, and a broken shark vertebrae. After realizing that I was not going to find anything too impressive, I drove to Matoaka and encountered the same luck. I asked around and supposedly everyone I met was finding only small teeth as well. The best finds of the day were an angel shark tooth and a fairly intact ecphora. - Timmy
  5. My wife and I took a trip fown to Maryland late last week for a little calvert formation hunting at Bayfront park. As i mentioned on another post we got to the beach at quarter to 7am and had the place to ourselves for a while. Nobody was there to collect our access fee so we walked down to the beach just after low tide. One set of footprints were just above the surf line but i never did see who made them as nobody passed us either direction all day. We both found a couple of small teeth on our walk from the enterance to the corner that juts ou. My wife decided to stay in yhe c

    Calvert formation unknowns

    Not sure what shark(?) tooth this is, has very heavy root on a small (quarter inch squares) tooth Tiny fish(?) tooth, tough to photograph well with my equipment. Tooth is about 3mm long, less than 1mm wide Not sure what this might be. About an inch long
  7. Over the past few months work has been crazy (although in a VERY good way) and I haven't had the time to post summaries of my past few trips to the Calvert Cliffs formation. Long stories short, I was able to get down to the cliffs on a few occasions between Feb-April 2019. Most of the time I was able to go when tides were good, however on my most recent trip they were horrible. I've met a lot of awesome people along the beach and developed many good friendships...in fact I think that 95% of the people I met have been extremely friendly, genuine, willing to give advice, and just plain good peop

    Bayfront Park 03/30/19

    Hey everyone, A few days ago I finally got back out to Bayfront Park. According to the local forecast, it was going to be a cloudy day, but there was enough space in the sky during the sunrise for the sun to peek through and create a marvelous display of colors. I always love the scenery at Brownies, and that day was especially beautiful. The tide was relatively low when I arrived, but since I got there just after peak low tide, the water was rising for the entire time I was there, and it rose much faster than I would've liked. I didn't find any big teeth, but overall still had a g

    Hop 5 03/30/19

    1. Hemipristis serra: One of my first teeth of the day, found in the water. Small, but nice colors and perfect serrations. 2. Carcharias cuspidata: Flawless sand tiger. Symmetrical and super sharp, with both double cusplets intact. 3. Galeocerdo aduncus: Gorgeous tiger, almost looks like a G. cuvier because of size. Very nice root to crown contrast. 4. Odontocete tooth: Little porpoise/dolphin tooth with a long, thick root. In very good condition. 5. Ecphora sp.: A very nice small Ecphora, nearly complete, just missing the white part at the top.
  10. Hi all, For whatever reason, I never got around to posting this. After a relatively unsuccessful day at Bayfront Park back in 2018, my dad showed me this tooth, unsure of what it was. He said he had found it while sifting in the creek that runs under the bridge near the entrance of the park. I had never really bothered trying around that area because it was so far from any cliff exposures, but I suppose he proved that some of the best finds may be where you least expect them. The second he pulled out this tooth, my jaw dropped. It is a FLAWLESS cow shark symphyseal. I hadn't had a
  11. Hey all, The Calvert Cliffs have been falling left and right recently. Countless cliff slides have led to plenty of new material becoming accessible on the beaches, but the unstable cliffs also call for extra caution. I decided to return to my favorite winter hunting location, Bayfront Park, to try and take advantage of the cliff falls. I thought it would be a good opportunity to film my first YouTube video, which I have been wanting to do for a while, so I brought my new handheld camera mount. Peak low tide was exactly at sunrise, so I woke up at 4 a.m. in order to arrive at the b

    Bayfront Park 01/04/19

    Happy New Year, everyone! I was able to sneak in one more hunt before my winter break ended. I kicked off 2019 with another trip to my favorite winter location, Bayfront Park/Brownies Beach. The tides and weather looked favorable, not too cold and relatively low tide very early in the morning. I came more equipped than ever, complete with my new hunting gear that I got for Christmas, including a pair of chest waders (finally!), a sling pack, and a hat from the Calvert Marine Museum with an awesome Hemipristis design. I was one of the first to arrive, and quickly made use of the wad
  13. On a very drizzly Sunday, April 15, @Chomper and I headed out to Brownie's. We met one fellow fossil hunter who told us that a three-inch megalodon had been found just the previous day. We also encountered another fossil hunter heading out who was happy to show his wonderful collection of one-to-two-inch hemipristis teeth! One of the reasons I love heading to Brownie's is that it always seems to have some wonderful finds! I didn't expect any one-inch teeth or megalodons, knowing that the beach had probably been pretty well picked over that weekend, but I was surprised at what I fou

    The Headless Horseman of Bayfront Park

    I found this at Bayfront Park/Brownie's Beach in Maryland. This tooth is in decent condition aside from its lack of a root. This might make it more difficult to identify, but you can still identify from the crown alone sometimes. It is almost an inch in length. It has a smooth enamel with no striations, and a defined cutting edge that does not extend all the way up the crown. Rather, it stop about 2/3 of the way to the top on both sides. From a side view, the tooth does curve much like a Sand Tiger. It also has a very large protuberance at the top of the crown where it would meet the root. Alt

    Brownie's Beach 01/21/18

    After a successful second trip to Brownie's Beach a.k.a. Bayfront Park, I thought I'd head out there again. This time I chose to go alone, and I got up extra early to get there as soon as the park opened. I ended up doing just that; it was just becoming visible as I pulled into the gravel lot. I was the first person to arrive, which I've never been before, so waking up early was totally worth it. When it comes to fossil hunting at popular locations, "the early bird gets the worm." Once there was enough visibility outside, I slipped on my boots and made my way down the trail to the beach. As so
  16. Hello everyone! I recently took my fourth fossil hunting trip to the Calvert cliffs. It was not too cold, but there was ice actually washing up on the beach! I had waiders on and dressed warmly. I went with my friend and his sister. We searched all day, but the tide was just too high to fully search well. We had not found much at this point except a few very small teeth and some bone of some sort. As we walked back to the truck, I saw a small tooth sticking out of the cliff by my foot so I pulled it out. Next to it was the largest tooth I’ve ever found, embedded in cliff next to the other. I b

    Brownie's Beach 11/25/17

    After some careful thought and many references to suggestions from TFF members, I decided that my first fossil site would be Bayfront Park aka Brownie’s Beach in Chesapeake Beach, Maryland. I packed up my newly bought expedition gear, sifter and all, and headed out. It was a little over an hour’s drive, which is not bad at all if you ask me. It was the day after Black Friday, so I had thought maybe everyone would just want to stay at home. But given it was a weekend, and families were in town for Thanksgiving and looking for something fun to do, my timing ended up not being ideal. When I showe
  18. Had a really fun short trip this morning to Calvert Cliffs. The tide was especially high and I didn't expect many people to be there due to this fact and upon arrival noticed only a few cars. Then I noticed a group of teenagers surrounding the gate with green shirts that said, "Beach Patrol." It was a weird scene. There where a bunch of tennage girls all on their phones and the teenage boy says, "It's $18 to pass." I only had $9. Luckily he let me in but it seems like a ridiculous price to pay to get beach access. Had a good trip and found more cow shark teeth than all my other trips combined.

    small non-hemipristis

    Yesterday the tides were very far out in the bay. I think the multiple days of winds blowing south did it. Finding things at Brownies/Bay front park was difficult because it's been picked over. I think the tide has been abnormally low for multiple days now. I did find this small tooth at the end of my searching. It is the tooth in the upper left corner of the two pictures. I'm pretty sure it is not a hemipristis, as the shape is not right. Am I looking at a very small Meg? thanks for any help.. It is about 1 inch long on the diagnol

    My first Meg from Calvert Cliffs?

    Took a trip down to Calvert Cliffs today at Brownies Beach, and found this beauty. I covered a lot of ground in remote areas, but found this towards the entrance on my way out. Who knows how many people walked by it? Someone on the beach identified it as a baby megalodon tooth, but I want to hear your guys' thoughts! PS it's about 1.3 inches. Also cool to notice how the colors changed from when it was wet to dry.

    Calvert Cliffs weekend

    The wife and I spent our anniversary weekend in Chesapeake Beach hunting shark teeth and fossils at Bayfront Park. We had a great time! Most of the teeth were small, with the biggest being a decent Mako about 1.25". After Saturday, we ended up with 405 shark teeth, a couple small porpoise teeth a handful of small shark verts, a few porpoise verts, a fishtail vert, a small stingray tail, ray plates and several pieces of bone that look like ribs. As soon as I figure out how to get my pics under 2MB, I will put them up for everyone to see. You guys were right. Going around that first point was th

    First meg!

    Finally found my first meg down at Bayfront Park this weekend! Just laying there at the edge of the water looking up at me. Tip and one side are damaged and it's not the biggest by any means but it looks perfect to me! Does have really nice, sharp serrations, and the root is in great shape.

    Bayfront Park 3/26/16

    Well, still have yet to find my first Meg, but I am happy with this Mako and hemi. Mako is 1 5/8" and I love the color. Biggest hemi I've found so far at 1 3/8". Found a fair amount of decent sized teeth and a few verts as well.

    Bayfront Park-3/3/16

    Headed out for a trip to Bayfront Park on Wednesday with my GirlFriend to see if any megs would come our way. Although we didn't find any megs we did find some cool things. One of the pictures shows something I cant identify, its fossilized for sure but I can't tell what it is. Maybe coprolite? Also found a sweet Dolphin tooth and shark vert. Boneheadz

    Bayfront Park-2/28/16

    It's been a really long time since I last went hunting at Bayfront Park. So I took the trip down there to see what i could find. It was a beautiful day out, but with nice days comes a ton of people down on the beach. I headed around the cliffs and the number of people dropped haha. The water was murky and having people beat me down there resulted in not finding much that day. I was able to find a nice vert and a jaw bone that looks like to me to be either dolphin or porpoise. There was also a lot of cave ins along the cliffs so everyone be careful out there! Boneheadz
