  1. Break from the heat today, so hoped to enjoy the weather at the beach. Unfortunately the surf was washing small black wood particles up the length of the beach, and that negated the low tide. The water was turbid and I couldn't see behind the 'black surf' which was crashing more than I like. I only found a badly weathered cowshark tooth in the first hour, but being stupid and stubborn I kept at it and found a shrimp coprolite burroe, a pointy something (?), a skate tooth and six other small shark teeth (lost two at home, probably will step on them). The weather was gorgeous so I decided to try the freshwater creek, which has been hunted forever by the neighbors. The first spot, lots of gravel, found a broken cowshark tooth (with a root), a shrimp coprolite burrow (the sites are five miles apart so they must be common fossils), several skate teeth, a small pointy thing (not like the beach one), a vert, and a bonito nose (some other stuff still drying). But not many teeth (?) Tried another spot (mostly sand and shells) and found lots of teeth, but all small (another broken cowshark tooth, three angel shark teeth, and many sand tiger shark spikes and gray shark teeth, and a tiny mako or two. Beautiful day and lots of exercise! Birdsong impressive! Saw no amphibians today. Hope some of the stuff that is drying is real interesting, if not it will end up on my driveway.
  2. Went out to the beach, water was up and dirty, wind had been from east pushing tide up into the river, and the moon wasn't creating a low tide. At least I got some exercise, and a sunburnt neck and shoulder, and a dozen nondescript sand tiger teeth, small, no cusps, beaten. Decided to try a Rapp creek in the woods. Kids had been active over the Holiday weekend. A good sign that they are interested, people have been hunting roughly the same spots for over 50 years. Lots of frogs out, water low, HOT but while more humid than the beach and no breeze, some shade from the sun. Worked two spots for over two hours. More gravel and rocks than the more usual shell bits and sand, hoped for some bigger teeth but about the same as usual. No angel shark teeth and only a few drum teeth (maybe I missed them?) Only one vert, some skate teeth, a few glossy steinkern pieces, some "whale" bone and Tilly bones, lots of sand tiger spikes, a few gray , requiem and lemon shark teeth and possibly some small non-serrated mako? (broken). Finally found a cowshark tooth, hadn't found any in a month? Fun trip.
  3. rapp creek hunting

    Combined teeth from two trips, first to the creek, then to the beach. Quantity was better in the creek at least for small and broken teeth. Found a 1 1/2" pretty mako/great white on the beach, a few shrimp coprolite burrows, and the porpoise tooth. Cowshark from the usual spot, but broken, tips missing. Some drum teeth and a few angel shark teeth as well, and a neat little 'winged' vertebra, may take some more photos. Lots of people out with the nice weather. Don't think the fish are biting although the ospreys are very active, may switch to fishing from tooth hunting soon.
  4. Found this nice symphyseal cowshark tooth brought back in material from Brownies Beach from May 2017. Took over 18 months to go through all the material.
  5. rapp creek hunting

    Went into the woods and hunted the creek some, major rain shuffled stuff up. Found a whole scallop, the two shells together for a million years but fell down with my bucket, broke the pectan apart, broke one, and also two partially broken ecphora are now wholely broken (fortunately I'm not broken). May have lost a few teeth as well. Found at least one broken cowshark (possibly three?), and several angel shark teeth, a few drum (probably more when the other stuff in the bucket dries) and mostly tiny teeth. The most interesting find was a black vertabra with weird paired processes on each side. Lots of water in the creek, but a nice day for hunting!
  6. rapp creek hunting

    Howling wind and deep ice cold water, but figured the creek bed would protect me from the wind (it did) and cold (not so much). Less hunters out. Don't usually post casts/steinkerns but this gastropod(?) has two small fossilized worm like things on it (probably need to get a better photo than the scan). All the rain has washed shells everywhere (lots of 5" to 7" scallops/ pectans everywhere; didn't see any whole ecphora, the only shells I usually pick up. Frilly oysters were everywhere as well; top half is neat). Most of the teeth I found was small or broken or both; three cow shark, one decent with root. Four(?) angelshark and several others, lots of spikes most missing their cusps, small triangular most with faint serrations, and a bunch of glossy drum teeth (photo is of the other side). Broken verts. When other stuff dries, may find something else interesting.
  7. rapp creek hunting

    Went out to find a new spot. After a few unproductive but relaxing hours (not as humid, not many mosquitoes, lots of frogs), I found a spot that yielded a bunch of small teeth, including a cowshark and three angelshark teeth. Also found pieces of at least three tiger shark teeth (rare in my old spots) Found a piece of frog(?) jaw with three flattened teeth (small but bigger than most I've found). I thought I had found another Mako ventral tooth, but it has serrations, heavy at the bottom and fine in the middle edges of the blade. People here IDed it as a hemi ventral tooth. Picked up about 20 "drum teeth" but half lacked the distinctive glossy top and hollow bottoms (and a few black shell bits discarded with the small black round rocks). Hopefully the "vein" won't die out like the last spot!
  8. rapp creek hunting

    Finally went back to the creek. Lots of changes from the rains. Took my first few hours to find productive spots, which I only worked the last hour. The mosquitoes were horrific; although there were leopard(?) frogs everywhere, no dent in the mosquito population (must have missed a few spots with bug spray or they liked the flavor). One big cow shark tooth with a root, some points tipped, and and a second piece, three or four angel shark teeth, which I missed at the beach trips. Lots of spikes, and little teeth. Found three small verterbrae, skate teeth, rough stinger, and scute, and several drum teeth (waiting for stuff to dry).
  9. rapp creek hunting

    After heavy rains for the past week, was hoping stuff would be re-arranged in my creek and new stuff would be visible. The reverse happened; my favorite spots were silted and sanded in. Much of the creek bed had changed water flow, and hardly any of the usual shells were visible just sand everywhere. Good to be hunting again. Most of the frogs were gone (probably eaten) but saw a few fearless ones. So did some digging and screening; nothing big, a bonito nose, a small skate stinger, vertebrae, some broken cow shark teeth, lots of drum teeth, three or four angelshark teeth, and rare (for me) a small rough tiger shark tooth. More rain predicted for the next week, more exploring for me.
  10. rapp creek hunting

    Been away for a while. The kids(?) have dug out much of the creek bank where I had been hunting, so I tried a few additional spots. The creek was low from minimal rain the last week (wet overall year). Less mosquitoes, more frogs (two bronze stripes, Leopard frogs?) Both the temperature and humidity had fallen and I stayed longer than usual. Highlights were a root-less but nice cow shark tooth and a hemipristis (hadn't seen any this year); many broken. Three angel shark teeth (probably more of those and drum teeth once they all dry). Mostly sand shark spikes, but one may be a small ventral great white/mako. One nice vertebra, but pieces of much bigger ones. Small number of tiny teeth, probably find more in bucket when it dries. Penny is 19 mm in diameter.
  11. Hey everyone! I haven't posted on the forum for a looonggg time, but here I am again Winters in the Netherlands and Belgium suck, and hunting in the freezing cold isn't everything, so I was very happy that the weather is finally getting better, just in my vacation from university! Took the opportunity to go hunting right away, and we certainly didn't regret it (although we didn't expect to find much!) We went hunting twice and I hope we can go a few times more next week Our best find was probably a S. microcephalus, couldn't be happier when I saw it! It's our first of that species We also found a C. escheri, which is a first too (love the little cusplets on this tooth) We came across a N. cepedianus in our sifter too, and although we found some specimens of that species before, this is probably the most whole and perfect of them all! Will be continued in next post
  12. Since my first time finding one I have been obsessed with cowshark teeth. I’ll share some of my collection and please share me what you have. Thanks! Notorynchus Cepedianus, Calvert fm Hexanchus sp, from Chile Notorynchus Kempi, Kazakhstan Notorynchus Colonsii, Muddy Creek, VA
  13. Rapp creek hunting

    Back to the same hole I have been mining. Really nice weather, which brought out the mosquitoes. Found lots of sand shark, some bull/ dusky shark, several more angel shark, and the smallest cowshark tooth I've ever found (and a small one with big root and small tooth that I don't recognize). I looked hard in the area where I found the ulna with quill attachments last week and did find more bone pieces, and busted teeth(?). Many were "whale bone" (including two pieces that were one earlier, fit together well) but two were more interesting, although non-descript. I'll try to add some better pictures of those two. 2-16-18-teeth.pdf 2-16-18-tiny-teeth.pdf 2-16-18-bone.pdf 2-16-18-bone2.pdf
  14. I didn't think we would get out this weekend, my daughter's birthday was on Saturday and I knew that the Mid-Atlantic Fossil and Nature Club was going to be at Stratford Hall...but with nothing else to do today, we decided to head down. We arrived at dead high tide and once again, the water was higher than we ever saw it before...there was hardly any beach. I felt sorry for the folks that shelled out money for the M-AF&NC, spending over $100 to get access to areas that were in many cases, under water. I did hear that there were some cool finds, a big croc tooth and some 2"+ Makos. I also heard that Dr. Weems was excavating a 4' whale skull, I'm signed up to attend an event with him in a few weeks so I can't wait to ask about it. Well, we settled in to sift...and sift and sift some more. We were finding the typical small stuff, nothing spectacular but still fun. I sifted up a baby Meg, too bad it was broken. Seeing the cusp on the side was pretty cool. My wife found what looks like to be some more turtle material and then on her last two scoops, a nice snaggletooth and a cow shark tooth. Total Haul. Baby Meg, love the cusp! Too bad it wasn't whole. Cow Shark...last scoop of the day! Unknown, possibly turtle? Side 1. Side 2
  15. Spent a couple of hours on a small beach, lots of whale bone but guess the teeth are pretty much picked over. Very pleasant 'hunting', no bugs, no black leaves, just lots of shells. Then went back to my creek spot for a few more hours and was rewarded with a decent mako (small chip) and a broken cow shark tooth.
  16. cow shark

    This tiny sevengill shark tooth is the smallest I have ever found. At 8mm as a lower tooth it must have been a juvenile or even new born shark.
  17. Hello all! I am currently looking for a nice Notorynchus tooth. The location doesn't matter much, but I would like to know though what it is. I would like it to be complete! Also, I am looking for a lower tooth, because I really like the numerous cusps. Send me a PM if you have one for trade, with pictures of both sides; and tell me what you are looking for yourself. A few of the things I have for trade are: sharkteeth, ray teeth, seashells, coral, and more; some from now closed locations. Best regards and have a nice weekend, Max
  18. Hey So I went to Antwerp the week before last week. The hunts weren't going too well and the majority of the teeth we found were broken. I was really hoping to find a complete cow shark tooth, but I was only finding pieces.. Found some nice tiger shark teeth though (besides the usual portion of C. hastalis teeth)! We went again last week. I wasn't expecting anything (the haul from the hunt before wasn't very impressive), but apparently that's the moment you find one of the most special teeth you've ever found... A symphyseal cow shark tooth! Never thought I would find one . And.... A whole cowshark tooth too! The root isn't complete, but you won't hear me complain So I loooooove Antwerp Kind regards, Angie
  19. Center Cow shark tooth

    I found these two center cow shark teeth at Brownie Beach/Bayfront park in Chesapeake Beach, MD I was wondering if these teeth was a notorynchus griseus or a hexanchus griseus. Thanks
