  1. Would like help identifying what appears to be fossilized bone. Could not get accurate measurements in photos but joint piece is approx. 1.5 inches wide. Overall size is approx. 6 inches width X 4.5 inches length. Thickness is about .5 inches and flairs into a flat bottom approx. 1 inch wide. Piece was discovered by friend along Potomac River between Maryland and West Virginia, USA. Any help in identifying type of bone or possible species/type of animal would be great. Any information or guesses is appreciated.

    Bonnet Ray?

    Can someone confirm or deny whether this is from a bonnet ray? Found over the weekend near Stratford Hall in VA - along the Potomac. Thanks!

    Semi Hemi?

    Need some help confirming what type of tooth this partial specimen is. I found it along the Potomac in Virginia. I think it is a snaggletooth, but something seems weird about that diagnosis. Thanks!

    Skull piece?

    Any ideas what type of bone piece this is? I am inclined to say it is a skull piece from a whale. It is heavy - seems too heavy to be a vert fragment. Found it in the Potomac near Stratford Hall and the Horsehead Cliffs. (VA/MD)
  5. The Mesozoic is an area that is sorely lacking in my collection. I don't know why, but I just never got around to collecting in it. I never fell in love with dinosaurs or mososaurs like a lot of other people. That was until fairly recently, when I finally took it upon myself to diversify my collection and get to know better my area's (and in some ways own backyard!) geology and paleontology. I set out to discover more about Maryland's Mesozoic Park. I guess it would be best to start off from the beginning. I started the journey not knowing what I'd find, but knowing w

    Paleocene petrified wood?

    I found this piece at Douglas Point on the Potomac a while back. I set it aside for a snowy day not sure if it was bone or something else. Definitely fossilized, but a little weird for bone. Taking a closer look today at the recently broken end, I think I see growth rings. And maybe thin bark on the outside? Is this petrified wood? If so, it would be a first for me from there.
  7. Hello All! As you can see by the title of my post and the plethora of pictures to follow, I have been quite busy... busy fossil hunting that is! Since New Years I have been averaging at least one trip per weekend which is a good fix to distract myself from the less-than admirable weather (I just want spring!!!!!). This whole week is off for me since I'm off on Spring Break and that means I can go out hunting during the week to avoid the crowds which is always pleasant to get the beach to yourself. Also with the turn of the season and somewhat "warm" weather we have had I was able to launch my

    Paleocene marine turtle bone?

    A few weeks ago I found this bone fragment on the Potomac at a Paleocene site. It has a distinctive indentation which I thought might allow for an ID. An initial suggestion was a turtle bone, maybe a peripheral bone where a rib ending would attach. But I am open to any other ideas. I understand there may not be enough to go on. Thanks for looking!

    Several unknown fossils...

    Hello! I hope it's okay to post several photos. I will do front and back with letters to mark each one. These were found over the years in Virginia or Maryland. The possible parks in VA would have been Caledon, Westmoreland, and York River. I also frequented Purse State Park in Maryland. I'm sorry I don't recall where each are from. I just found this forum and am grateful for your help! I'm a beginner as far as knowledge goes and am eager to learn! I'm most interested in B and D. I think E may be fossilized wood?

    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?
  12. This bone found at Stratford Hall on the Potomac has a socket that makes me think it’s part of a pelvis... I could be totally wrong on that, but it does resemble some online comparisons to turtle or bird, but I’m hoping more experienced eyes will know ... thanks for taking a look!
  13. A bone chunk from the Stratford cliffs...I’m curious about it.:: the connection point, the dimples..: anyone recognize?

    Douglas Point 6-16-21

    Drove down from Jersey to Douglas Point on Tuesday. Only my second time there, and I was worried that I'd make the 4 hour drive and it'd be crowded. Only one car when I got there around 1pm, and another pulled up as I was unpacking my gear. The narrow beach was pretty much open as the first vehicle was a family wayyy down over to the left playing in the water with a raft and the other was a lone fossil hunter hand searching the tide debris line. Beautiful day and I guess my take was pretty much around average for the site. I'm quite fine with that and I look forward to returning. Mo

    Potomac

    Water was high today, but just like this tree, I didn’t give up. Not as many teeth as I usually get. I get distracted. My first tooth of this type.

    Douglas Point Shark Tooth ID Help

    Went out to Douglas Point (Potomac River, MD, Paleocene, Aquia Formation) on June 5th, first time taking the kids and we had a great time. Found a lot of sand tiger teeth as is typical. But this one has me a little stumped. The crown seems too wide at the base to be a sand tiger tooth. Could it be a small or juvenile Otodus? Or is it some kind of sand tiger after all?
  17. Hey all, quick question. I am currently in school in the Harrisburg, PA region and am limited in trying to stay under an hour and a half drives for spots. I noticed some posts about shark teeth in the Potomac river but most of what I could find was that these sites are more near the D.C. area. I was wondering if anyone here knew if all of the Potomac had fossils to find or if it is strictly along certain areas of erosion off of the cliffs that the Potomac cuts through? I think either way over the summer I am going to try to end up at the Aquia formation but was wondering if I coul
  18. Hit the beach hard Saturday with my girlfriend. Water was choppy which kept them coming in. My biggest tooth ever was a 1.5 inch mako in Virginia. Didn't have hopes of finding much with size. But we brought home 430 total teeth. All sizes. During the first 5 mins I looked in the edge of the chop on the water and saw this huge(well it was huge to me) tooth. Ended up being a 2 inch mako which I assumed Meg at first. Regardless was thrilled. After finding alot of smaller teeth(bunches of hemis) I saw another 2.25inch mako just off the water edge. 2 very nice makos within 20 yards of ea
  19. This riker mount displays the best shark teeth that I collected on 3 hunts sifting at Douglas Point beach, Charles County, Maryland. This is the Paleocene Aquia Formation. Bottom row contains several Odotus teeth. There are many goblin shark Anomotodon and sand tiger shark Carcharias. Also appears to be one pygmy white shark Paleocarcharodon in lower left corner.

    Lucky Chubutensis

    I was hunting a site on the Potomac looking for some Eocene and Miocene fossils yesterday. When I got to the site I found this gorgeous snake vertebrae about 15 minutes into my trip, so I knew it was going to be a good day. After that it was slow collecting for the next few hours, I was only picking up a tooth every once in a while despite the incredible conditions. But then, 10 minutes before I was about to leave I stumbled upon my best chubutensis yet at about 2 3/4 in. (or 7 cm) rolling around in the surf. One that I have been dreaming about ever since a starting collecting two years

    Potomac river Virginia fossil ID help

    Guys any help on these would be great. 2 are some sort of black shell fossils? The other appears to maybe be a jaw bone? You can see it's missing a few teeth maybe. Just never found these before so curious what they might be. Thanks in advance.

    3/21/21 Potomac finds

    Ventured out on Virginia side of the Potomac in Westmoreland county Sunday and had a decent day. No wave action so after about an hour the beach was picked over. Did find bunch of teeth but a couple fossils we have never found before. 2 look like shells? Then it's some sort of jaw bone? Like to see what exactly those are if anyone can help. Attaching the 2 shells first and then the jawbone style fossil. Weather is getting warmer but harder to find anything now since more families are coming out and hitting the beaches. Which is a good thing(better than playing video games at home or setti

  24. Got out to look on the Potomac yesterday and even with the wind and cold temps still had a decent haul. Tons of sand shark teeth. Just posting a pic of the biggest. But had a few other finds that Id like verification on. What type of shark is the second tooth photo? Im assuming the 3rd photo is croc teeth? Is this a claw? It's razor sharp! No idea what the last 2 pics are so any help would be great. Can't wait for warmer temps since my hands wanted to freeze. Hope everyone has a good spring.
  25. I’ve recently bought some fossil shark teeth online to expand my collection beyond the local Maryland fauna (Miocene from the Calvert Cliffs and Paleocene from the Potomac River/Aquia Formation), and it occurred to me that perhaps there are some forum members who would be interested in sharing some of your finds or extras in exchange for mine. The things I have to offer are shown below—mostly fossil shark teeth and a few other things. These aren’t all perfect, but there’s a good variety, including some less common species. I’ve collected most of these myself and have also listed a
