  1. Anyone have a good guess on these teeth?

    These two fossils I picked up a few years back from Breezy Point Beach MD. I have a good handful of toothed whale/dolphin teeth from that particular beach, but the main thing that sets these two apart from the others is how big they are. I was wondering if they might possibly be from something other than a porpoise. The left one has a clear sign of it being broken, I tried to get a better image of the split in the third image. I understand if they're too damaged to get any definite identifications considering how broken they are. but if anyone has a good hunch I'd absolutely appreciate it.
  2. Shark Tooth

    Since I’m in lockdown, I’m going through old teeth. One small tooth in my Flag Pond, MD box had me stumped. I’m now leaning toward a small Galeocerno contortus. It is all black and hard to get a good picture.
  3. Trace Fossils from Miocene Potomac

    Hi, longtime lurker first time poster here. I was wondering if you guys can help me ID this concretion my family found years ago near Calvert. I believe it might be a trace fossil of some kind, possibly a burrow or tunnel. I have found similar types at Westmoreland State Park. I can upload pictures from different angles if needed. Any suggestions of what it could be?
  4. Last Day on the Potomac River

    Hi everyone, My son and I were lucky enough to get out in the Potomac before Maryland and Virginia issued stay-at-home orders. Guess our hunting is on hold for the time being. It was a beautiful spring day. The wind kicked up late and kind of nullified low tide, but quite enjoyable anyway. I though I’d share a few pictures. I included a closer shot of 2 types of teeth we had not found there before. They look more like Miocene finds from the Calvert Cliffs area. I also included what I think is a vertebra and a few interesting teeth from a trip last week.
  5. Potomac Paleocene Finds

    Hello, my son and I had a great time on the shores of the Potomac River in Maryland, USA yesterday. Found some nice shark teeth and also a few objects that may or not not be fossils. We’re hoping you could help. These two pieces were associated with the Paleocene Aquia formation 56-59 million years old. Here are 4 pictures of each of the two objects. #1 #2
  6. Douglas Point, MD

    I wanted to go to Flag Pond to search for teeth, it was closed. Then Matoaka, it was closed. Had to settle for Douglas Point, MD for just a few hours. Not too great there, the water was really high.
  7. Purse State Park 3-22-20

    I got to Purse a couple hours before low tide and got a good 5 and a half hours of searching. Managed to scrounge together over 1,000 teeth, most of them pretty small, a new personal best. I didn't find anything of significant size, but a handful of oddities/rarities. One such oddity was what looks like a Carcharhinus (Gray/Dusky Shark) of some sort. Perhaps some folks came to Purse following a hunt at Westmoreland or some other place and a tooth slipped out of their bag. This is a first for me. I found a worn down palaeocarcharodon with some nice dark blue coloration, some crocodile teeth, among other things. I found a neat little fossil of some sort that I can't identify, it's about 0.8 mm in diameter. Images: https://imgur.com/gallery/d0qdUxU
  8. Purse State Park 3/20/20

    Hello all! Yesterday I took my girlfriend’s family out to Purse SP to go fossil hunting alongside my sister and me. We spent nearly 4 hours predominantly beach combing looking for any teeth and other fossils. At the end of the day, my sister and I had found our first crocodile tooth and a Pygmy white shark tooth in rough condition. We also found a few other decent shark teeth (identification would be appreciated) seen to the left of the coin. Side note: I am nearly certain that the fossil to the left of the croc tooth is a piece of a crab claw for anyone wondering.
  9. Jaekelotodus or Paleohypotodus

    Curious to know the ID on these teeth. They were found some time ago in Maryland from a Paleocene location and both are about 3/4" long. I was initially thinking they might be Jaekelotodus robustus, but not 100% sure because Paleohypotodus rutoti looks a little similar. Unfortunately elasmo.com doesn't have any examples of Maryland specimens of J. robustus for comparison. Your thoughts?
  10. Unknown Fossil--Please help identify

    I found this fossil several years ago while I was looking for shark teeth along the bank of the Potomac. The exposed cliffs in the area are part of the Nanjemoy formation, and the fossils I find are usually Miocene or Eocene. I have no idea what this fossil is (Maybe a tooth?). I figured that I would finally get around to posting this in hopes that someone on this forum can help identify it for me. More pictures available upon request. Thanks, Christopher
  11. 1st trip to Flag Pond

    Had a blast at Flag Ponds yesterday. Weather was great. Met up with @Searcher78 and had fun as always. Enjoy the pics. Hemis
  12. Flag Pond, MD

    A few nice finds at Flag Pond today. The weather was nice.
  13. Hello all! These finds showcase some coral, chesapectan fossils, shark teeth, and more. Also, this is the first time I came across a “complete”, yet very much battered, chesapectan fossil. I went with 2 others and spent around 6 hours. Thank you for reading. - Timmy
  14. Douglas Point, MD

    Got here at sunrise and walked by a bunch of turkeys. I expected them on the ground, not in the trees.
  15. Had the beach to myself yesterday and had a great morning! Two and a half hour of all surface finds, no sifting. One of the best crocs I’ve seen from Douglas definitely made my week!
  16. Douglas Point, MD

    Went to Douglas Point, MD today with the goal of getting some angel shark teeth. I found 7 for my collection.
  17. Shark teeth

    These two teeth are from Purse Park, MD. What are these two? The cusp on the first one is interesting.
  18. 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.
  19. Hello! I actually found both of these Miocene fossils years ago at Brownies Beach (Calvert Cliffs Maryland, USA). When I found the tooth, I thought it to be a worn, unidentifiable rooted Cetacean tooth (so I never researched it) but saw a fossil hunting trip report this morning where a similar fossil was identified as a sperm whale tooth so I'm hoping this might be the same case. As per the other one; it looks a little different from the normal mammal bones i find here so I figured I would post this one too. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
  20. Brownie’s Beach No Trespassing?

    I haven’t been to Brownie’s Beach in a while and thought I’d take a day trip. When double checking my route online I notice some tv news stories about a cliff collapse there in January that the fire department responded to. No one was hurt, and looking at drone footage afterwards the beach seems to have way fewer collapse piles than last year. So I didn’t think too much of it and showed up there this morning. Once I made a right at the water after walking down the trail, I was greeted with a large sign saying; Danger unstable cliffs ahead. Any persons beyond this point will be considered trespassing. There were also three metal poles in the sand like they were going to put up a fence. At this point I was pretty annoyed and didn’t think to take a picture. Sorry. There were foot prints in the sand that went right by the sign, but I wasn’t trying my luck. So I went to Matoaka Beach for the day. I wanted to check it out anyways so I took the opportunity. I had a pretty good day and will post a few pics of some stuff I’m unfamiliar with another day. I have a few questions about the signage and if you can answer any of them please chime in. And if you have a question jump in. When did this sign go up? Can the town or police really not allow people in the area? Considering Maryland’s property laws and the high tide line, can anyone actually fine you? Is the sign there more as a deterrence and/or release of liability by the town? Any input is much appreciated. Basic64
  21. Amazing day yesterday! @sharkdoctor and I spent all day at the Calvert Marine Museum’s collection sorting through and cataloging pieces of his collection either loaned or donated to the Museum. When I say amazing fossils, I mean it. Crabs, birds, whale material, possibly a new species of seal, teeth, turtle plates, and more. @sharkdoctoris a really cool guy because he focuses all on adding to science and not just trying to grow his own collection. Plus, he’s so informative! After completing the cataloging of his collection we proceeded to catalog some of Bretton Kent’s world class shark tooth collection. The incredible John Nance took us through the museums archives, showing us the only Hexanchus from Calvert, 3 inch makos, Gomphothere Teeth, rare species of shark, a whole crocodile, and other innumerable fossils that would be any collectors dream to have. Thank you John Nance, @sharkdoctorand the whole fossil community for building this up.
  22. Flag Pond / Purse Park

    2 of the 4 deer that like to eat my bushes. Sorry, now to the tooth. Going through numerous teeth I have, trying to organize them. This one from flag pond. Carcharhinus? Or hammerhead?
  23. Matoaka Cabins, Maryland

    Searched matoaka beach today. Lots of shells, but I don’t collect them. Not as much luck as Brownies, but not bad. I believe that I got my first fish tooth.
  24. Miocene Shark Teeth #2

    These teeth (as with my other post) are from a Miocene site in Maryland USA, Calvert Cliffs area, specifically Chesapeake Beach (Bayfront Park)- Brownies. I have tried to group and identify them. Do you agree? Thanks Row 1: Sand Tiger Carcharias sp Row 2: Cow shark Notorynchus cepedianus Row 3: Carcharhinus (I don’t know species) Row 4: Lemon shark Negaprion eurybathrodono
  25. Hello, I have been doing some fossil hunting at Bay Front Park (Chesapeake Beach) -Brownies- in Maryland USA and have been trying to group and identify some of the teeth I found. I believe these teeth are Miocene and my guesses are as follows- what do you think? Thanks Row 1: Physogaleus contortus Row 2: Galeocerdo aduncus Row 3: Hemipristis serra
