    Two Miocene bird bones

    Calling out to those familiar with flying creatures from the Miocene! These two were found on separate occasions in float from Miocene cliffs. Anyone recognize? Thanks in advance!

    Is this common in Potomac?

    A couple years ago a friend and I decided to hit the road to look for sharks teeth. Calvert cliffs was the one place that kept showing up on google. We live in southern Ohio so we took a chance and drove out to Maryland. Went to Brownies, walked to Calvert, checked flags, the Cabins, Westmoreland with little to no luck. Somehow we came across Purse so we took a chance and went. Found hundreds of small teeth but I found one that was decent. Talked to Hoppe and he identified it as a otodus. Just wondering if it is normal size? Did I get lucky? I plan on revisiting in March. Last year was a bust.

    Dermal denticle dilemma

    Why are these denticles going in opposite directions? It’s got me baffled, but maybe it’s just ignorance.. any help is appreciated

    Nanjemoy MD fossil ID #1

    Good evening, brand newbie here. We recently went shark tooth hunting on the beach at Purse State Park in Maryland and along with sand Tiger/goblin/mackerel shark teeth, Gastropod internal molds, stingray dental plates, I collected a few other items that seemed unique. I looked online at some fossil sites for the Paleocene era but man I have to admit I was ready to toss these. Figured it was worth an ask here. I used the centimeter side of my ruler to take photos of each of the items and will post each in a separate post.

    Weird one - need ID help

    Ok. Found this one in the Potomac River near Westmoreland State Park / Fossil Beach. It has some enamel toward the narrow end and in the hole. Never seen anything like it and would love some ID help.
  11. I spent Wednesday morning (10/5) at Purse State Park for the first time. I was the only one there the entire time. It probably helped that it was on a Wednesday and it was raining sporadically. As soon as I stepped foot on the beach, I found a broken tooth. The water had small rough waves. I put my hand in it and scooped up a handfull of gravel and in the first handfull, I found 3 teeth. It was a pretty fun day.

    Hear Hear!! Cetacean ear

    Hi all! Looking for advice and insight on this cetacean ear bone ( periotic? ) … All info is welcome and thanks!

    Need help with fossil ID

    I am a real newby at this so this might seem quite basic, I apologize. I took my grandson to hunt for sharks teeth at Purse State Park and Douglas Point on the Potomac. We found some nice sand tiger teeth but I’m not sure of the others. First pic - sand tiger shark teeth. Second and third pics are what I need help with. Thanks!

    Cetacean vert?

    Found this in the water near the fossil beach of Westmoreland State Park in Va. Seems like a whale / dolphin bone, but what part? Is it a vert piece? As always, thanks for the help.
  15. How can you really tell coprolite from any other rock? Horsehead cliffs, Potomac. Calvert.

    Please tell me the tooth!

    Not sure what this is. For a while I thought it was a hemi but the root is not shaped right near the tooth. The root seems to not be whole, but this may not be from a shark. Seems too round to be a shark tooth. Please help!

    Opinions on Miocene tooth?

    Shopping for some opinions on this tooth from the Potomac river …Thanks!
  19. 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)
  23. 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.
  25. 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
