    Popes Creek, Westmoreland, VA, Potomac

    Please help me identify 2 unusual fossils I discovered November 2022 at Popes Creek on the Potomac River, Westmoreland VA. I have attached images.

    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.

    Trip to Westmoreland State Park, VA

    Last weekend I went on a camping trip to Westmoreland State Park in Virginia, somewhere I had fossil hunted previously and found some cool bones like a dolphin vert. This time, I found several bones that I believe might be able to be identified. If anyone can help, it would be much appreciated. Thanks! All of the finds: A piece of whale bone, id'd through size: Rey Teeth: Continued in the next post due to upload issues

    Westmoreland State Park

    Hello, I found this some time ago at Fossil Beach in Virginia. Can anyone help me identify what bone this is and what animal it may belong to? Thank you! 3 Monkeys Mama
  8. Hi all, I had a fairly productive first outing to Westmoreland State Park but I have no idea what any of the fossils I found are. I am happy to provide close-ups of any of the individual fossils, and in addition to the photos here, I posted some to imgur to get around the size restriction here. https://imgur.com/gallery/2uIedQS Thanks for your help!

    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!

    Non-shark Tooth ID please

    I found this yesterday at Westmoreland State Park in Virginia, which I think is Miocene stuff. Can anyone ID?
  11. I got to make my first trip to Westmoreland State Park (WSP) today. I hit the beach around 1330 today (low tide was ~1430). As expected...it being a Saturday... the place was packed. Most of the traffic was on the first 1/3 of the beach, so I opted to walk about halfway down the beach and setup shop. I can't say that I had lofty expectations, as this was only my second fossil hunting trip. I was surprised to find my first tooth within about 10 minutes. I had multiple sifting sorts (or whatever you want to call it) that had 2+ teeth in them. One had three teeth. It

    Scallop

    From the album: Virginia Miocene

    Chesapectin nefrens Westmoland County, VA Choptank Formation Middle Miocene C. nefrens is fairly common in the Choptank Formation, but the level of sculptural detail preserved in this particular specimen just blew me away when I gently brushed off the loose sediment.

  14. It was a little colder than we would have liked, but still had a fun time! Definitely going to have to return. We were there for a few hours, left just after low tide peaked. Found most of the stuff in one hole, decided to just keep digging it down and sifting with 1/4" mesh. Not the most productive day, but we also had a picnic which took a bit of our time away. Are the bits in the top right anything of note? They looked different so we decided to keep them.

    Mini Miocene Marine Mammal

    I found this a few days ago along the Virginia side of the Potomac River along a miocene cliff. It's mostly if not all Choptank formation. Any ideas about a genus? Grid is in inches. Looks like maybe mature dolphin tailbone, but it's so small???

    Mystery Scapula

    I found this scapula this weekend along the Potomac River in Virginia. It's a vertebrate. That's all I know for sure. Most of the cliff next to the beach where I found it is miocene marine, but the very top is pleistocene terrestrial. The grid is in inches.
  17. Spent a cold, soggy day on a private trip along the Potomac yesterday. The mud was so saturated that we were sinking up to our knees where the sand met the mud at the base of the cliffs. It was totally worth it! Came home with treasures untold until I finish unpacking. I know there are some really nice whale vertebrae in there, including the one below. There are also a couple nice Ephora snails and what looks like maybe an echinoid -- really rare for the area if it is! My daughter found a couple snaggletooth shark teeth that are actually iridescent and blew me away! Here's a video report of t

    Please help identify

    Hi, I found these two odd items yesterday at Westmoreland State Park. Both were in the stream that feeds from the wetlands into the river. The "fang" type piece does appear to be hollow. The small black piece might just be a weird rock but kind of looks like a piece of scute (fingers crossed lol!). Thanks in advance for any help!

    Is this a fossil?

    I recently found this at Westmoreland State Park (Virginia) near the Potomac River. It just looked weird to me so I kept it. I'm fairly new to fossil hunting so I am unsure if it is a fossil. Thanks you in advance for any help!

    Shark tooth!

    Hi! I am new to this site and thought it would be a good place to help ID some of the teeth and bone that I have found that I cant say with certainty it one thing or another. So I'll start with what is probably easy for yall. thanks for any help!
  21. What a trip! I finally had the opportunity to visit the renowned Westmoreland State Park in Montross, VA. I had heard mixed feelings about the site online, with some claiming it was far too over-picked and others dubbing it reliable and productive. I decided the best way to find out the truth was to go there myself! My dad and I hit the road early to get there before sunrise. It was about a 2 hour drive. We arrived and expected to have to pay a fee to get in, but it appeared that no one was being charged. I guess there is only a fee during the summer months. We hiked down the steep

    Fossil Beach VA

    Relocating to FL a couple of years ago from VA incensed me to start hunting shark teeth, and then lo and behold I discovered that I could have been hunting in VA too. I had heard rumors of teeth at Stratford Hall as a kid but never followed up on it. So I finally had a trip back to VA and a chance to rush out to the beach, last minute I didn't have much time to plan but what better place to hunt fossils than "Fossil Beach", right? The visitor center had a nice display to fan the fever... Well it was a bit different that I expected. I was surp

    Unidentified Tooth

    Hello again! This post is going to lack detail for the most part, because I don't have much to give. All we really know about this piece is that my mother found it in the water at Westmoreland State Park, Virginia. At first glance it looked like it could just be the tooth from a cow or horse, but the shapes didn't seem to match, and the piece looks rather too old to be from something recently deceased. The last image is an extreme close up with a digital microscope, and gives a good glimpse of the texture, which is more rock-like now than tooth-like. Anyway, again, I'm not an expert, whic
