    Calvert Cliffs Fossil Query

    Hello fellow fossil fans, I am a new member of this forum and a (very) amateur fossil collector. I found something yesterday at Calvert Cliffs in Maryland that I am struggling to identify. Can anyone shed some light on this object for me? Much obliged!

    4 complete megalodons in one trip

    Woah. Is all I have to say to this trip. Finding one of these was going to be a trip maker, but I found 4 complete megalodons. I’m really stoked. Also found some nice hemis, sand tigers, dolphin vertebra, bone, and etc. 3 of the megs were posterior but the fourth was a nice little cream Meg. Just a shame that I couldn’t get 5 today (just kidding). Here’s the haul. Bone frags and verts: small shark teeth: broken shark teeth: Meg and friends: The bay was just perfect. Had the whol
  3. I often find these items south of calvert cliffs, but not grouped together. Could they be sea urchin spines or is it some sort of plant?

    Unknown Shark Tooth

    Me and my dad were fossil hunting in the Calvert Cliffs Formation in Maryland, at brownies beach when my dad found this beauty. I thought it was a bull shark at first but upon closer inspection I am unsure as it hooks off at the end to the left. If anyone can identify this it would be much appreciated!

    Head Scratcher

    Hello everyone! I am going to share this rather confusing tooth. I found it under a section of cliff whose major tooth producer was likely Zone 12, definite Calvert Formation (which is early Miocene, creeping up on mid Miocene). It wasn’t found in situ, but the state of the tooth is almost perfect, leading me to believe it had worn out not long ago and likely not a trade tooth. Given this tooth without context, I would call it a Galeocerdo cuvier. But, given the context, this should be impossible, Cuvier are supposed to have arisen latest Miocene or early Pliocene. But this tooth i

    Fossil tour guide?

    Hi there! my name is Tim George. I am fairly new to the fossil hunting hobby and was wondering if anyone knew someone who could perhaps take me and my dad on a fossil hunting trip. I am looking for people who do tours of either the Calvert formation,Aquia formation, or the Nanjemoy formation. Thank you.
  7. Can someone help id this please. Found near Calvert Cliffs on the Chesapeake bay in Maryland, USA Photos show 2 sides of the same piece. Scale is cm.

    Bayfront Park 2/17

    Traveled east early Saturday morning to collect at Brownies Beach. Arrived to a bright red sunrise with a falling tide. Plenty of material was rolling around and the wind was blowing. Found a very nice crocodile tooth standing upright in the sand. Also found a sweet Peccary molar at low tide sitting on a sandbar. My friend arrived a few hours after me and scored a nice Squalodon tooth. I also found a much smaller one, but I love how it looks. As usual, at least one nice hemi was found with my biggest being 1 1/4". Had a real shamer broken one that was crazy sharp and would've broke 1 1/2". I a
  9. As request by WhodamanHD, here is a post of my recent sperm whale tooth find from Brownies Beach over the weekend and some other cetacean teeth. I also included a very cool red squalodon tooth I found at Stratford hall along with another tooth which I believe is also Squalodon. I like how the Squalodon tooth is split in half, I wouldn't have found it if I didn't notice what looked like a root of a tooth underwater. I also included a cool dolphin vertebrae I found at Stratford Hall

    Micro Finds - 2/10

    Along with the 3 pristine Hemis I found at Brownies Beach, I also found some interesting micro finds. I really like the 3 sand tiger teeth with the perfect sharp cusps on each side and they're REALLY sharp too. I also was able to score 2 nice Angelshark teeth (I love how they stand up on their root). I also found what I believe to be a tooth from the rostrum of a Sawfish? or perhaps some species of fish. I need help to ID the micro tooth, it has small serrations on either side and I have found one similar to this previously on another trip.
  11. Here are 3 pristine Hemipristis serra I collected from Brownies Beach over this past weekend. If only the lower tooth didnt have enamel peel! The biggest tooth measures 1 3/8" and was found rolling in the surf. I like the colors these teeth have from the sediment they were in.

    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

    Venus Clam

    Collected from matrix deposited in the Chesapeake Bay by landslide. These shells are extremely fragile and are not to be found loose on the beach. Most disintegrated when I was working the matrix. This specimen was donated to the Delaware Museum of Natural History.

    Possible Crab Claw Fragment?

    Ive had this little piece for a while, and had not really given it much attention until I ran into someones fossils from south florida, in which they had a tiny almost identical looking fragment. Heres a photo of mine, located last year at Calvert Cliffs!

    Found this at Calvert cliffs, was wonder what it belonged to.

    Assortment of ray plates. The plate top right is one of the biggest plates I've ever found intact.

    Shark Teeth

    From the album: Breezy Point, Calvert Cliffs Maryland 9/16/16

    Another view. The tooth second from the left towards the top is very smooth and black from years of being worn down by water and sand. This tooth is most likely a mako but it doesn't point straight up, so that makes me wonder if it's a sand tiger.

    Shark Teeth

    From the album: Breezy Point, Calvert Cliffs Maryland 9/16/16

    Here's another view of the teeth with special attention to the larger fragment near the center. This piece is most likely a great white or other large predatory shark. I doubt it's a megalodon, but it could be or one of it's smaller cousins. I've found meg shards at the cliffs before.

    Calvert Cliffs Bone fragment

    Here's another find from my recent trip to Calvert Cliffs. It almost looks like a piece of a jaw with missing teeth, but that's just a guess. Any input is greatly appreciated. Side note: It's really annoying that I have to sacrifice the quality of my photos due to the restriction on upload file size. I can provide additional photos in high resolution if needed. Thanks again everyone.

    Possible Meg tooth?

    Found this on my recent trip to Calvert Cliffs, Maryland. It's pretty beat up, but I think I may have found my first megalodon tooth! Any ideas?

    New Prehistoric Fish @ Calvert Cliffs

    I was excited to hear about the new species of tilefish they found last month. Cool lookin' guy. And then this fun snaggletooth shark was found on Halloween! Great month for Calvert Marine Museum's paleontologist.
