    Douglas Point 10-17-21

    After going several weeks without fossil hunting, due to weather, schedule, etc., I finally made it out to Douglas Point (Paleocene, Aquia Formation) in Maryland this morning on a very pretty, cool autumn day. My first fossil find of the day was a small piece of ratfish plate. Below is my first shark tooth of the day (a sand tiger, like the vast majority of teeth found here). By the standards of this site, the quantity of shark teeth was low today, but they were in better than average shape, which isn't a bad trade off. Many appeared to be fres
  2. 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?

    Paleocene bone

    I found this bone in Limhamn, Malmö, Sweden Paleocene in age (Danian) Does anyone possibly know what animal it belonged to? Now I'm not good with bones but I'm thinking bird? Crocodiles, Birds, Fish has been found at this locality. + another bone?
  5. This new site I’m going to is kind of starting to grow on me! I really love the abundance of well preserved shells and the sharks teeth that come out of here (if I don’t break them) are in superb condition. I arrive at this site, however, with some disappointment. Footprints everywhere, and discarded rocks piled in a pile i know I didn’t leave with a bunch of broken shells. It looks like someone took the liberty of smashing rocks with a hammer and leaving the place a mess for others. Not a good look to be honest I always try to clean my area and make it look better than where I left it. The go

    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?

    Venericardia bulla

    Hello I found this well preserved fossil along the Colorado river in south central TX, Bastrop county. The Kincaid formation is exposed along a nearby creek as well. Hoping to confirm my suspicions, thanks
  8. Hello to all of you guys, I´m a newbie to the forum, so i would like to before anything, say hi to everyone here And with that already said, i would need some help with the identification of some fossils of Elasmobranchii, that I have seen near the coast of south central Chile. The fossils are 2 teeth and something else that I´m unable to ID correctly (I think maybe a vertebra? or some weird gastropod). The age of the sandstone that contains these should be around the Upper Paleocene. The fisrt tooth I think is from some (I think) sand tiger shark (so

    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,

    NJ Paleocene ID Help

    This past weekend I had the chance to collect at an exposure of the Paleocene Vincentown Formation in New Jersey. The trip was a lot of fun and a number of really cool fossils were found. I have been able to identify most of my finds except for these two mystery fossils. I recognize the shark tooth as a sand tiger but I was hoping someone might know which sand tiger it is. I saw online that someone listed Carcharias samhammeri in the Vincentown but I am not an expert on shark teeth so I am not sure if that is what this tooth is. Any help is greatly appreciated! #1- bryozoan?
  18. 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!
  19. First off good to see everyone again. Been a good yr so far with fossils this year with new ones to add to collection. Time periods its hard to say except the horse tooth from 9-15000 yrs ago. Don't mind the mod podge on the connected spinal columns (I think) because the petrified black worms or seeds creeped me out. The coolest I think the petrified grass or leaf, but other finds especially the bones are up there too. Well enjoy and good to be back and if ideas on time frames give it a whirl. PS: Ill post more pics tomorrow with sizes to show how small some of this stuff is and etc.

    Aquia Formation Bone Fragment

    Here I have attached pictures of a recent find I made in Maryland’s Aquia Formation. It’s a Paleocene bone from what I think is a turtle. What do y’all think? It’s very thin whatever it is.
  21. In Colorado there is a formation called the Dawson Formation also known as the Dawson Arkose Formation. The most common fossil by far is petrified wood and although I haven’t found any vertebrate fossils from dinosaurs and mammals have been found. It covers a relatively large time span from late Cretaceous to early Eocene, about 70-54 million years old. A member that has also found fossils in this formation, Blake @FossilDudeCO. Although it has been over three years since he was on his posts have still helped. He said that further south is Eocene but higher north in Parker and Aurora is Cretac

    Maryland Paleocene sand tiger tooth

    I found the tooth below a couple of months ago at a Maryland Paleocene (Aquia Formation) site. Am I correct that it's Hypotodus verticalis? Thanks in advance for your help! The tooth measures just under 28 mm on the slant.
  23. I was eager to get out before the heatwave coming up so I made the visit to a couple new Cannonball sites the other day as well as property adjacent to where I collected the crabs this spring. I was expecting more good bivalve material from the first sites but I'm pretty happy with the results regardless. Sort of a continuation of this topic. I tried a few cuts before working my way down to the area I found the concretions in before. The material in all was extremely fragmented. I still need to bust that concretion. One of the inconspicuous cuts. More fragments.
  24. Going back several decades I have attempted to have an annual extended field trip; call it a fossil collecting vacation. Some years this happens, some it doesn't but this past November I had the opportunity to spend several days in the field visiting some of the classic Cretaceous and Paleogene river sites which abound in Alabama. Since I haven't had the opportunity to post much in my blog, I decided to post pictures from that trip here as I have time. First up are pictures from the lowermost Maastrichtian (~70 mya) Upper Cretaceous Bluffport Marl Member of the Demopolis Formation.
  25. I'm looking for a copy of Vertebrates of the Cannonball Formation (Paleocene) in North and South Dakota Alan M. Cvancara & John W. Hoganson Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology Vol. 13, No. 1 (Mar. 18, 1993), pp. 1-23 (23 pages) It's on Jstor but isn't currently available for free online reading. If anybody has a PDF I'd appreciate it.
