  1. Hello... I found this small tooth yesterday at Flag Pond in Calvert County MD. It is embedded in a small jaw fragment (the small tooth is circled in red). The jaw fragment is solid, not appearing hollow like a fish jaw. Any thoughts on what it could be? Thank you for your help!!

  8. Unknown Sand Tiger teeth

    Some teeth I found from Brownies that don't look like any other sand tigers I usually find. Many of them are very worn and broken. I'm no expert but my guess is that they are Eocene teeth. Any help is appreciated, thanks. Some of the larger ones

  11. 5" Calvert Meg

    So since there is so much sand on the river and bay this time of year i decided to change things ups and wander some creeks. Well low and behold look what i found and it was the only tooth of the day it is right at the 5" mark. Maybe i will have to spend some more time in the creeks instead of the bay and river lol!!!
  12. Found 3 more fossils at Calvert Cliffs I would like help identifying. Item 2 Item 3
  13. Went fossil hunting today with my sons after a bad storm that rolled through over the weekend at Calvert Cliffs in Maryland. It was a pretty good day hunting. My sons only lasted about an hour because of the heat. Anyways, we came across this object which we think is a tooth. We have been wrong before. Any help is much appreciated as always. I am also including a photo of our finds today.
  14. Rock or fossil/bone

    Hello all! I am new to fossil hunting and having a blast. We live in a area rich in Miocene fossils. I found this recently along one of our beaches. My first instinct was "it's a rock. Keep moving" but I couldn't leave it alone. LOL! Any thoughts?
  15. Well it is with bittersweet feeling that I'm leaving Maryland this coming Monday for a new job in Utah. This morning at 4:45 am I hoped into my car and drove to the Cliffs one last time to say goodbye. The tides were exceptionally high and I didn't do as well as last time but still had a good trip and found some stuff. A group of kids on a science trip ran into me at Mataoke cabin beach. Their guide had them gather around me as I had a hand full of Chesapecten nefrens and they were all oooohing and ahhhhing. I accidentally dropped a large tiger tooth that I found a few yards away and quickly picked it up. Their guide exclaimed, "Wow I can't believe you just found that tiger tooth!" The kids (especially the boys) at this point could care less about the large shells and where fixated on the tooth. Then they started looking all around my legs for more teeth. I wasn't about to tell their guide that I had found it a ways back and ruin the thrill of the moment so Injust gave everyone a coy smile and said, "Just keep looking and you're bound to find some good teeth." The truth was that was the first tooth I ever found at Mataoke and I never go their for teeth just for shells. :-) Pictures coming soon! PS - Sorry for the pictures and poor lighting. My canon is packed away and so is my nice measuring board. :-( Here's the loot! I'm not positive if these are all Chesapecten nefrens. I'll have to ID them all later but for now I'll call them C. nefrens. Some of these are matching pairs. Pro-tip: If you can get to Bayfront Park by roughly 5:45 am then the Beach Patrol (teenagers with green shirts) shouldn't be there yet collecting money. This was beneficial as I didn't have to cough up $18. I just found out those over 50 can get in for $10. What gives?! Just because I'm a young man doesn't mean I should be punished for it! Very high tides today. Overcast with high tides. This is going to be fun... and wet... Ecphora popped right out of the matrix. I believe this is from the St. Mary's formation because this was found in some rubble that fell from the very top of the cliffs and I know for a fact that's the St. Mary's layer. Golfball sized Ecphora in the Matrix. Please be complete... And... it's missing the bottom stem... Other than that it looks good. I'll keep it. View of a large baseball sized Ecphora. This one isn't worth extracting as that would take hours with special tools and super glue. What a heart breaker. Someday I'll find one this size that won't be so brittle. Here are a bunch of Hammer and Bonnet Head shark teeth with a few Requiem. There's an Angel shark tooth up top. I find fewer of those than cow shark teeth! Some large ray plates. The one in the middle might be the largest plate I've ever found at Bayfront. A collection of newly acquired Ecphora gardnera and Turritella. I don't usually keep bones but this one has some neat dimensions to it. Small C. nefrens are usually not kept but these have beautiful color to them. Not a bad day for Makos. Three of my best Makos from the trip. Not my best trip but certainly not my worst either.

  19. Calvert Cliffs Shell

    I occasionally find one of these small reddish-brown colored "shells" insitu in large blocks of material that come down from a particular layer of sediment along Calvert Cliffs, MD (Miocene). The max size for these is about 1/2" in diameter, but most are small like the ones in my pic below. Anyone have any idea as to what these little "shells" are called? They only seem to be one piece. Daryl.
