  1. 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
  2. Are there any fossil hunting sites within an hour and a half’s driving distance from Charlottesville, Virginia?

    New to shark teeth, ID Help?

    Hi folks. I've had some of these for a while and have tried to ID them using the resources referenced by the forum. Did not want to post without trying to see what I could ID first. Appreciate the help! Also unsure of the ages if anyone knows. Guesses for Image 1 from left to right. Locality, Myrtle Beach, SC Row 1: Tiger? (It is thicker than the rest); Great White; Auriculatus?; Requiem?; Sand Tiger Row 2: Sand Tiger; Bull?; Lemon; Short-fin Mako?; White Shark?; Mako? Guesses for Image 2 from left to right. Locality: Potomac River, VA
  5. Hi all, went on a fossil hunting trip recently and I found some things I'm unsure of. these were found off of Route 60 in the Reedsville formation. My best guess ( assuming this isn't concretion of course) was this may be some sort of horn coral. there was another splinter of rock that looks like it could be a cluster of brachiopods but what kind I have no idea.

    New Castle VA Devonian Ostracod?

    Hi all, I collected this fossil a while back, I’m wondering, is it an example of a large ostracod? The fossil is from the Devonian Chemung/Foreknobs formation near New Castle, VA. I have no idea what it is, but ostracods are known from the area, and I could see them as a possibility. Any ideas? *fossil is 3cm in length

    Cetacean vertebra?

    I found this vertebra sitting in the creek, washed down I guess. It is 4" long, and roughly 3" wide (at "top" and "bottom") and heavy for its size. Sides look like they may have had "wings" that were clipped off? Two pairs of closely set protuberances in the center of one "face" with almost diagonal depressions on the side. Two pale depressions at one end of the other face, with black depressions to the side above (below?) where the wings attach. Dried for over a week. Used to see a lot of big verts in the creek thirty years ago, this one is the only one I've found recently.

    Crustaceans in Sandstone

    This is a fossil of what I think was a small crustacean. It was found in a tributary very close to the Shenandoah River. It is sandstone. The view in 1 is the best example however in 6 there are what appears to be the noses of other specimens sticking out of the matrix. Oddly enough they all seem to be facing in the same direction, perhaps a feeding pattern. I would sure like some help identifying and dating this specimen. I'm sure there are more where this one came from. Thanks in advance, Phil Good--------Northern Va.
  9. I hit the Potomac yesterday after a long hiatus for some Paleocene sharks teeth. I also decided to include a few of my finds from the recent Stratford hall trip, which was pretty decent. I always go to Douglas point for my Paleocene teeth because it’s just a good area and I almost always come back with a complete otodus. This time, that didn’t happen, though I did find a few broketodus teeth so meh. But I did come back with some good stuff, including a monster croc tooth, and a gigantic goblin sharks tooth. I also got a fish jaw with a lot of teeth in it and some other nice stuff, in addition

    Oligocene cetacean bulla?

    Hello! With the extension of warmer and calmer weather in my area, I have recently taken to the dark arts of sifting gravel beds in search of fossils. Previously I have avoided this because it’s a lot of work, but I have been enjoying finding the higher quantities of fossils and other things... I know there are a couple of different exposures on this river’s banks, a marl with fresh shells and Miocene vertebrate material, and a reworked gravel layer with a bit more worn mixed material including either angustidens or ariculatus shark teeth. Pictures included. These are usually very
  11. Some of my recent finds. Four ray stinger pieces, a dozen drum teeth. Four angel shark teeth (just to the left of the vert piece). Unusual for me, two small tiger shark teeth (i think the small part of these teeth must break off often); scanned most of the small teeth I found. Broken cowshark and parasymphyseal sand tiger. And a bunch of sand tiger and grey shark teeth.

  19. Hiked up to some Devonian Foreknobs Formation exposures yesterday on a mountain in the Jefferson National Forest in Craig County, Virginia. Found some awesome and beautiful ammonoids, cephalopods, and more!!! Now I’ve just gotta find some trilobites and crinoids...lol Some of the better ammonoids I found in some mudstone: Some of the different types of cephalopods along with some brachiopods: And 2 unknowns, not a clue in the world what these are:

    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?
  21. Hi guys, I have this serratolamna from muddy creek, now s,gafsana is described from here but apparently this looks more like older serratolamna teeth. The age of the formation here is ypresian, but I was wondering if anyone knew of any older underlying strata that may be able to produce an older serratolamna or if this one is just an odd ball thanks
  22. Hi all, this past Sunday I went fossil hunting in the Jefferson National Forest near New Castle VA and found an unknown compression fossil. The pic of the unknown fossil doesn’t have a scale, but the fossil is 6.4 millimeters in length. Any help IDing it would be appreciated! Btw I also found several plates covered in mineralized and carbonized brachiopod compression fossils on the trip, but these were in mudstone sedimentary rock...fossiliferous shales and limestones are known from the area, but I didn’t see anything on fossiliferous mudstone (gray-brown claystone to be exact) based o
  23. Spent a few hours earlier today fossil hunting Ordovician strata in the Jefferson National Forest near New Castle, Virginia in Craig County for the first time. Was well rewarded with several plates covered in brachiopod compression fossils. Also found what I think is some sort of burrow. Also found an odd fossil that I can’t identify, I will post it in the ID forum later with a higher resolution microscope pic and a scale, but for now I will post what I have..

    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?
  25. Dr. Stephen Godfrey, the Curator of Paleontology at the Calvert Marine Museum, has a special interest in bones and coprolites with bite marks. I recently found the below fish coprolite (20 mm length) with bite marks in the Eocene, Nanjemoy Formation of Virginia and donated it to the Calvert Marine Museum. Some bite marks are infilled with Pyrite. It is by far the nicest example of a fish coprolite with bite marks that I’ve seen from the Eocene, Nanjemoy Formation of Virginia (I’ve collected over 50,000 fish coprolites (shark, ray and bony fish) from the Nanjemoy Formation over the last 25
