  1. I'm new to fossil collecting and currently obsessed with shark teeth. I live near the Calvert Cliffs in Maryland, USA, and have been on several trips there and a couple trips to nearby locations in Maryland. In total I have been fossil collecting a total of 5 or 6 times since the beginning of October. I've found several hundred sharks teeth and have a great time each trip. I wanted to share a few of my best finds over the past couple weeks, beginning with... My first meg! I believe technically it is a chubitensis, but a megatooth nonetheless. I found this one on just my 3rd trip, a
  2. It was a very nice day out on the bay. The site I was at exposed both the choptank, and the st. Mary’s formation. I was really hoping to find a large megalodon since there had been a massive storm the other day but that didn’t happen. Oh well, I still stumbled onto some great finds. This beach was pretty much in the middle of nowhere, so there wasn’t a soul to be found here. I was the only one there. It was quite peaceful. Here are the finds: The complete grab: The complete grab flipped: All the better finds:
  3. I went to 4 other beaches on Oct. 8 & 9 with guide Paul Murdoch Jr. He is extremely knowledgeable and has access to beaches that non-residents can't access. The weather was amazing as well, but the water started to become more rough, but not too rough.
  4. I went to Palm Point, MD (Calvert Cliffs) for the first time on Fri., Oct. 7. I hired Bill P. as a guide as he is very knowledgeable and has connections for accessing parts of the cliffs that non-residents can't access. It was a pretty amazing day. 112 shark teeth found, not including ray plates and other fossils. I'll need to post the other fossils later as they still haven't been unpacked yet. I think we hiked 7 miles on the beach. The water was like glass. The conditions couldn't have been better.

    Possible Maryland whale tooth?

    Hello there! I found this "tooth?" on a beach in Calvert cliffs state park in Maryland. Any help with it's identification or really and information about it at all would be a huge help. Thank you!
  6. Hello there! Found this guy in Calvert cliffs state park, Maryland. I think it's a fossilized barnacle, but I'd love another perspective. Thanks in advance and I appreciate the help!

    Maryland mystery fish bone?

    Hello there! I found this bone on the beach in Calvert cliffs state park in Maryland. I tried to find what kind of bone it was, but have been having no luck identifying it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My best guess is some kind of fish bone? (Thank you!)
  8. Hello there! I was looking around the Fossil ID sections and saw a post about a piece of petrified wood which looks very close to this unidentified bit I found on a beach in Calvert Cliffs state park in Maryland. Does anyone have any information that can definitively classify this as petrified wood? Thanks in advance!
  9. Hello there! So I have adjusted my expectations for this one, but does anyone have any clue as to what this bone is from? (Found in Calvert cliffs state park, Maryland) I'd love to add it to my named fossil collection! Thanks in advance and good luck!

    Maryland Tooth (Possibly Whale?)

    Hello there all! I found this tooth while combing the sand on a beach in Calvert Cliffs state park, Maryland. Any help with identification or classification would be fantastic, thank you!

    Flag Ponds unidentified bone

    Hi all, Apologies for being gone for so long. I have been busy with pretty important research for my (hopefully) undergrad thesis. Anyways, I found this bone a few years back at Flag Ponds Nature Park in Calvert County, Maryland. It's Miocene in age. I know that most bone chunks coming from float from the cliffs are unidentifiable but this one seems to have some diagnostic characters considering the amount of foramina running through it. I could be wrong, however. That's why I study fish, not cetaceans! Thanks all in advance.
  12. Hey guys, I'm planning a trip to the Chesapeake and Calvert cliffs area for a few weeks from now and I was wondering i any more experienced hunters have some biases towards which areas and access locations they like best. I've previously been to the Matoaka Cabins and Calvert Cliffs State Park, both of which yielded similar finds with nothing big, although I found the access to the cliff bases at Matoaka more favorable. I'd also love to find a canoe rental in the area to boat about and stop at exposed beach areas to hunt before heading further along the stretch, although general advice an

    Flag Ponds Weirdys

    Got some weird stuff from the Cliffs, been meaning to get them checked out. first one up i think is a bone fragment of some kind. it passes the tongue test. but someone on the FB group suggested it might be a fragment of a Gomp tooth perhaps? this is a bone fragment, but the porous nature of the middle has me thinking bird perhaps? also, the top edge is rounded and smooth so it looks to be a small diameter long bone. lastly is this piece, Im sure its probably a beaten up snaggletooth, but the cross section has me thinking mammal possibly?
  15. A couple of weeks ago, I went to Calvert Cliffs, MD to comb the beach for shark teeth, and came across these: A lot of them are missing their tops, which may make ID more difficult. Also, I’m not sure if 7 is even a tooth or just conveniently shaped. I’m fairly confident that 9 is a thresher shark, and think that 1-3 are maybe lemon sharks, but otherwise I’m lost. I’m particularly interested in (what I believe is) the vertebra and the sting ray mouth plate (13 and 14, respectively). I tried to get better supplemental photos, though fossil size and camera quality were a

    ID Help with Bone from Matoaka

    Hi all, I was at Matoaka yesterday (Calvert Cliffs, Choptank Formation, Miocene), and happened upon this bone a little bit north of the main cliffs. It looks like either a carpal or tarsal bone. Definitely heavier, fossilized bone. Possibly a terrestrial mammal of some kind? If anyone has any ideas, I'm not as familiar with the land-dwellers of the time period.
  17. Hey guys! As a new fossil hunter, I am terrible at keeping up with my trip reports, so instead of struggling to remember the little details, here's a compiled post on how the past three months went. I don't have professional photos of every find, but hopefully what I do have will scratch the itch for anyone interested in my escapades. Oh - I'll be in NJ this Saturday for another hunt with DVPS - any tips for shallow creek hunting would be appreciated! ~ January My first ever attempt at winter hunting. Armed with tips from you generous folks, I went solo

    Calvert, Potomac

    I will be traveling to chesapeake bay on Fri 03/25-03/27. With the trespassing signs on the cliffs and me being from Ohio I decided against crossing them. I went to flag ponds, brownies, cottages, and walked down the state park with no luck back in 2020. Got lucky and found purse and Douglas point. Walked away with lots of teeth and a nice otodus. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where to look other than the potomac. I don't want any honey holes and wouldn't ask for any. Just a general direction. Thanks for any help

    Preferred Calver Cliffs Spots

    Hey guys, I was wondering which state parks or locations you guys preferred when going to hunt in the Calvert county area around Southern Maryland and around the Chesapeake? Curious to what the opinions are on the best areas around here. Thanks, Skidush
  20. Lots of our members collect at the Calvert Cliffs so here is something new to lookout for. S. Godfrey et al. describe new coprolite discoveries from the cliffs. https://riviste.unimi.it/index.php/RIPS/article/view/17064
  21. Hey all, This weekend I was going to go on a trip with folks from my fossil club, but they cancelled last minute and I've already paid for a hotel room in the area. Therefore, weather be darned, I'm going fossil hunting anyway. Is anyone else going out on Saturday that might want company? I'm a pretty relaxed human who typically matches the energy in the room, as I like to be inoffensive and approachable. I just figured that it would be awesome to hunt with another forum member or two instead of going it alone.

  23. Yesterday I scouted Calvert Cliffs Beach to see if my friends would be able to join me on a fossil hunt there. As this was only my third lifetime hunt, I'd only been to Matoaka prior, and wanted to see if the path to the Calvert Beach was accessible enough for a friend using a cane and someone more out of shape than I am. That said, I'm not fit myself, so the 3.6-mile hike to and from the beach was not easy. However, it was gorgeous! As many people will tell you online, the cliffs at Calvert Beach are not legally accessible; the state park service has closed off access to them due

    Miocene Bivalve id's

    These fossils were purchased by me from a friend who had received them 30yrs ago. In the box they were in was a paper that read "Miocene, Calvert Cliffs, MD. Though some have argued that they are Florida fossils...I found id's for all but a couple from: "Vokes, H.E., 1957, Miocene fossils of Maryland: Maryland Geological Survey Bulletin 20, 85 p". I was wondering if anyone could id the two left...the single fossil photos? Thanks Greg

    New Bay Mystery

    Hi everyone. I went to Calvert Cliffs last week & found an interesting piece of bone. I have dozens of bone fragments from the Bay, but almost all of them are linear. This one is much more rounded. It is slightly bigger than a quarter. It might be too small to identify, but I thought it was worth sharing. It doesn't look turtle-y to me, but I guess that is a possibility.
