    Purse State Park 4-5-21

    I was able to get out to Purse State Park this morning for a Maryland Paleocene (Aquia Formation) hunt. I usually prefer the nearby Douglas Point when I hit the Potomac River but I decided to give Purse a try as I haven't been to that stretch in a while. I was the second car in the lot but first on the beach, which is always the best way to start the fossil day. My first good find--a croc tooth, though the enamel is very worn: Followed by an Otodus -- also quite worn but a decent size for the site (approx. 1.25"):
  2. I've wanted to put together an artificial tooth set of Striatolamia striata from the Aquia Formation in Maryland for a while given the abundance of that species in the formation. Until recently, though, I was missing a lot of the less commonly collected tooth positions--extreme posteriors, intermediates, and first lower anteriors. After searching through several gallons of Potomac River gravels over the last couple of months, I finally filled in the gaps. I put together the tooth set below a few days ago and just finished mounting them in a riker box I received in the mail yesterday.
  3. Had the great fortune to spend a few days in the northern neck with my partner looking for fossils and wandering about. Sunday we hit a low tide at Stratford Hall . A beautiful morning ,and later in the afternoon looking over our spoils at Montross brewery!
  4. Hi! My son found this at Fossil Beach on the Potomac River at Westmoreland State Park, VA. I was hoping someone could tell me what it is. He is an aspiring (seven-year-old) paleontologist and very excited about his find! Thanks for your help!
  5. This was not really a fossil hunt, but a lovely trip to Pendleton county West VA... I usually hunt sharks teeth on the lower Potomac in Westmoreland county, VA , but was amazed to be on the south branch of the south fork of the Potomac near Upper Tract West Virginia... it flows north here mostly heading for Harpers Ferry... I was rewarded with great views and some stromatolithic limestone .
  6. Terrible surf and tides today on the Potomac at Stratford Hall, but I picked up this odd chunk of what appears to be enamel... portion of a tooth? But not marine as far as I have experience. Anyone have any ideas? Pictures aren’t great tonight, I’ll post more in the daylight. Thanks!
  7. I have a 20 year relationship with the little beach at westmoreland state park, and despite the fact that it was crawling with moms, dads, and kids today, it still gave up some nice pieces.
  8. I found this interesting bone fragment at Westmoreland State Park (Virginia) on the shores of the Potomac River. (Mostly Miocene marine fauna.) It seems to be broken on one end, but not the other. One side is concave while the other is convex. A friend thought it might possibly be a rostrum fragment? Any ideas what it could be? Thanks!
  9. A friend found this bone on the shores of the Potomac River in Virginia... mostly miocene marine fauna. Closest we could find was a picture of an ocean sunfish beak from the Calvert cliffs.. but we are eager to hear what others might think? Thanks!
  10. Miocene Whale Recovered From & for Display at Westmoreland State Park in VA This past Saturday, Mrs.SA2, @Daleksec (Trevor), his dad Orlin, @MarcoSr, his 2 sons Marco Jr. and Mel, a couple of other folks and I had the pleasure and privilege to finally finish recovering a whale skull from the cliffs at Westmoreland State Park here in VA. Marco Sr's sons had been working to excavate and recover this skull since June, but due to the unstable cliffs, high water levels, wind / waves, and trespassers / poachers damaging the plaster jackets, they had not been able to finish the task u

    First hunt at Potomac River

    Went on my first hunt at the Potomac River on Wednesday. It was great weather and had a blast. It was high tide but was able to get a productive 2.5 hours in before I headed back to NJ. I was fortunate enough to meet another TFF member in the parking lot Bjohn170. Still have to go through and ID everything but enjoy the pics.

    Small mammal jaw bone I.D.

    Hello all. I am a newbie on fossil forum and am thrilled that there is a platform like this to help amateurs like myself identify our finds. Thanks in advance. My wife and I have been hunting and collecting fossils over the last few years and it has become a passion. There is nothing more exciting than finding the million plus year old remains of a living creature. We are currently camping in Virginia(USA) at the Westmoreland state park located on the Potomac river near the Chesapeake bay. We went to a local beach known as fossil beach and I found a very small(1/2" long) mammal ja

    Help IDing please :)

    My husband and I went fossil hunting today and would love some help identifying our finds. We were searching at Westmoreland State Park at Fossil Beach; it was our first time there. I believe the larger black piece is bone? And is the round piece a fossil at all? It has a hole completely through the middle- maybe a pipe stem? Thank you!

    Potomac Area mystery

    Hi everyone Not much new to report this summer, so that is why I haven't posted in awhile, but I found something interesting while fishing last weekend on the Potomac River near the mouth of the Port Tobacco River. It is about 6 cm wide at it's widest point. Any help with an ID would be greatly appreciated.

    Darktooth Family Trip

    My family and I have been in Maryland since Thursday evening. The past two days have involved alot of walking and intense heat. My calves and feet are sore and I have got a good sunburn. Friday morning we met up with forum member @RCW3D and his daughter. He took us out to a Miocene exposure along the Potomac River. We started our hunt a little before 10am and I think we got finished around 2pm. We all managed to find some goodies. RCW3D'S whale vert and articulated marlin verts definitely were the prize of the day. But I was happy with what I found though nothing as exciting. I found an assort

    Pachygaleus tooth?

    Hey everyone, realizing right now that I haven't posted any fossils of my own in quite a while on the forum. Anyway, I found this tooth back in 2016 on my trip to the potomac river in maryland. It was found at purse state park which has exposures of the paleocene Aquia formation. When I first took a closer look at this tooth I was surprised to see that it had a shape which I had associated with Tiger sharks. I did some research online and found that Pachygaleus would be a match as they are present in that strata. It has been a while since that initial discovery but I wanted to confirm my idea
  17. It's been a while since I posted a trip but today was one that I won't forget in a long time, I was lucky enough to be there when my wife found a 4 3/4" meg...that my dumb butt walked by at least twice! DOH! Beautiful day on the river, falling water all day long and the temperature was awesome. Total haul of teeth The megs Too bad this one was missing the root. I dug the rib bone out of a chunk of matrix Atlas found by my wife Love the colors on this Found a couple of teeth h

    Can you help us ID?

    We found this fossil on the shore of the Potomac River at Fossil Beach in Westmoreland State Park, Virginia. The beach is surrounded by high clay cliffs, and is known for an abundance of sharks teeth. It appears to have a small hinge, but the contours of the lines have made it challenging for us to ID. Bivalve? Brachiopod? Can anyone share a more seasoned opinion? The rock is heavy and dense, reddish brown in color, with oval shaped pitting. The fossil impression itself measures approx 45 mm x 35 mm.
  19. This one is small. My son is curious to know if you can help us ID the long fossil with the tiny legs. He was wondering if it could be some kind of very small shrimp? This was found on the shores of the Potomac River in Westmoreland State Park. The beach is surrounded by high clay cliffs, and is known for an abundance of sharks teeth. The long, slender fossil in question measures approx 8 mm long.

    Crab cast?

    This looks to me like the internal mold of a crab carapace in concretion.,. What do you all think?
  21. After the long month without fossil hunting, we decided to go to Purse on a free weekend. Now that it is a former state park, it's a lot harder to find because there is no address to it, so hopefully it can recover from some of the hunting that has taken place upon it's shores. I really, really wanted some nice Macrotas after all the talk I had heard about them, and thankfully, Purse didn't disappoint. It was the middle of hunting season there, and we werent wearing anything particularly bright, it was a little nerve racking hearing the boom of gunshots far of in the distance. We started by go
  22. Hello All! I found this shark tooth at Purse State Park in Charles County, MD. Located on the Potomac River, these fossils are from the Aquia Formation. As a novice fossil hunter, I would love some help in identifying this tooth. Is this a Cretolamna sp. (appendiculata?) or Otodus obliquus? Thanks so much in advance! ~Natalie
  23. Hello everyone, I will be visiting the Washington DC area, and want to take a trip to the Potomac to hunt for some shark teeth. Can anyone suggest a good area, and possibly some gear to wear this time of year? I normally wear a wet suit and waterproof boots for this sort of thing and stay relatively warm, so I'm not too worried about the cold. I am looking for a spot with easy access, and preferably not private property, unless someone is willing to let me search on their land. I have never been to the Potomac before, so any suggestions are welcome! Thank you!

    Douglas Point sharktooth ID

    I found this tooth at Douglas Point on a hunt about a year and a half ago. I took it out tonight and the more I look at it I am wondering if it is a small baby Otodus? If not what else do you guys think it could be? It measures 13 mm wide and 15 mm slant
