  1. Hello everyone! I have not posted in a while because I have not been on any trips recently. However, I just recently had the opportunity to go on a Fossil collecting tour in a Miocene exposure in VA. I was able to meet the helpful and friendly @SailingAlongToo (thanks to him I was able to learn about this fantastic opportunity). My mom, dad, and best friend spent Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19 collecting fossils along a river. On Saturday, my mom found a killer posterior meg using a kitty litter scooper in a gravel bar after not finding anything for 1.5 hours. I found two crocodile teeth and some hastalis teeth around 1.5 inches. My best friend found some hastalis teeth, and my dad found a large “cookie” Fossil of a vertebra I believe. On Sunday mom found some nice hemis and an item that could not be readily identified. I found half of a juvenile meg and a posterior meg tooth. My dad found a larger gator tooth, and my best friend also found some hemis. Here are some pictures, thanks for reading!
  2. Went out to a quarry in Eastern North Carolina last week, with all of the rain that we had the previous day I was pleasantly surprised that they still allowed us in. My favorite find of the day was the stingray barb. It measures over three inches long and has a nice gray color. Random tooth Found several crocodile teeth. The whole mess. Saw several nice Megs found by other hunters. Had a nice hunt, searched and every once in awhile found a nice fossil.
  3. I was lucky enough to get back-to-back trips to the Potomac in some great October weather. I had a lot of fun playing tour guide to my friend and his family yesterday, but I was really looking forward to some solo time with no rushing at all. I had a meeting with my boss at 11:00 to get my performance review and all I kept thinking was, "hurry up, low tide is at 1:30!" I rushed out of there when it was over and was hiking down to the river by 12:15. As soon as I arrived at the beach, I sat down on a log to put my water shoes on and saw this in front of me: I took it as a good sign and I was on my way. The water was crystal clear and the lowest I have seen it since I started coming there, I found myself drawn to the water to look in areas that are usually covered up, but I also wanted to search the areas of the beach that were now dry as a bone. In one little drainage I saw this little tooth: I don't know if you can tell or not but that was under some flowing water, I thought it looked pretty cool. I continued down the beach and ran into another forum member, drobare. He and I chatted for a bit and he looked down and found a small Otodus at his feet. After we went our separate ways, I moved about 20 feet and found another small Otodus in one of his footprints...what are the odds? LOL! I can't say that I had any earth shattering finds, I would say that the crock tooth and turtle shell would be my favorites, but it definitely will go down as ne of my favorite days on the river this year! The total haul: Crocodile teeth (the one on top was a fragment) and soft shell turtle: Now this intrigued me, I think it is bone but I'm not sure...here are some pictures: Other side. Close ups on both sides: Looking at the end. Beautiful day! You definitely have to take advantage of them when you get them! Great meeting you drobare, hope to see you on the water again!
  4. I had never been to Purse State Park until this morning. I hadn't planned on even going today but at the last minute I figured that I would give it a try. When I first got to the water there was fog covering the river to the point I could only see about 15-20 feet of the shore. I searched for about 4-5 hours and found right around 300 teeth. Here are a few of my favorites of the day. Can anyone tell me what the tooth on the top left is? I have an idea but don't want to get ahead of myself.
  5. Miocene Potomac

    I had a few hours that I could play today so instead of heading across the river to Purse State ark, I decided to stay closer to home and do some sifting in the Miocene section of the Potomac...and I'm glad that I did! I have to say that this was a pretty good learning trip for me, although I did pretty good, I definitely learned some more about my equipment. I headed down to the beach with my shark tooth sifter (like a sand flea rake) and my floating sifter with a shovel. I started with the shark tooth sifter and while it worked fine, I realized that it isn't the most efficient piece of gear to sift through a lot sand/gravel...so I broke out my floating sifter and shovel. I made this sifter myself after looking at what was out there, pretty standard job, 1/4 inch mesh, PVC frame, pool noodle for flotation...and the last item is where I made a mistake. While the water was calm, the sifter floated good enough...though I couldn't load as much as I wanted into it until it started to submerge. Things got pretty chaotic when the water started to get rough and I found myself trying to load the sifter and keep it steady while the rollers were trying to flip it constantly. Oh well, lesson learned...I still have more material left so I'll build another sifter with the larger pool noodle! Here was the haul. Nice croc tooth, a vert, and an unknown. The vert and the unknown a little closer. And the unknown again...anyone have any clue at what it is? I uploaded this photo by accident, not sure how to delete it.
  6. Back to the Potomac

    First off, I just want to say that I have had a love for the Potomac River for over 25 years...not for fossil hunting, but for bass fishing. The river has been good to me and I made many checks in the tournaments that I participated in there. When I moved into this area 10 years ago, I thought that I would spend all of my recreation time chasing bass on the river...but it wasn't meant to be. I basically stopped fishing tournaments when the price of gas got so astronomically high and I found that I didn't miss it...little did I know that I would find another reason to love this river, and I can't get enough of it! I wasn't expecting to go today, I had a day packed with meetings that I knew I had to attend. My wife texted me around noon, wanting to know what the tides were like on the river...when I looked and saw it was favorable for the late afternoon/evening, I got an idea. My last "meeting" was a teleconference so I could easily attend while driving to the river...GAME ON! My wife dropped me off at an access upriver and I'm guessing it was about 1.5 miles of beach to search before I met up with her again. The river finally had receded from the high water that I saw the past week, my hopes were high as I stepped out to start searching...only to get deflated when I saw footprints in the sand. Oh well, just have to look harder! Almost immediately I found a beat up croc tooth, it was a start though. I went about a 1/4 of a mile when I surprised a bald eagle...I was only about 20 yards away from it, the closest I have ever been to one in the wild. Normally they don't put up with human intrusion and will take off long before you can get close...I snapped some pictures and kept going. I continued on and about 50 yards past it and I saw the where the footprints turned around...virgin territory now! I'm glad that they did turn there because it wasn't much further when I found the Otodus lying along the water's edge. I continued along, finding a couple of croc teeth, one pretty nice. I also found something that I'm not sure of, I will defer to the experts here as to whether it is something or not. All-in-all, I had a great evening on the water! The start. The eagle. The Otodus when I found it. Time to go! The combined haul. Close up of the Otodus. Croc teeth (my wife found a beat up one too), Turritella Gastropod mold, ray plate. My unknown find.
  7. After a couple of weeks out of town, my wife and I were anxious to go back out on the river. We initially planned on going to Westmoreland State Park but the tides would have been bad there, so we decided to drive the extra 40 minutes to go to Purse State Park instead...and I'm glad we did! We searched for about 3 hours until darkness and the incoming tide sent us home...we ended up with 370 shark teeth, numerous ray plates, 2 crocodile teeth (one the nicest I have found there), and a fragment that I originally thought was "sharky" but after looking at it more today, I'm thinking it is a croc tooth. This is what I'm looking for an ID on...it is flatter than other croc teeth I have found which lead me to believe it was a shark tooth last night...now I'm not so sure. Thoughts? The other side and the bottom.
