Found 25 results

  1. Douglas Point, Maryland

    Was trying different areas, so I didn’t get as many of the small teeth that I like.
  2. Claw?

    From Douglas Point, Maryland, I kept this because it looked like a claw, maybe turtle?
  3. Nice day at Douglas Point

    Water was high, but it was a nice day for hunting. Lots of mushrooms and a turtle on the trail.
  4. Ray tooth?

    Found at Douglas Point, MD yesterday.
  5. Douglas Point

    Had to take a day off from work to take advantage of a day without rain. There were mushrooms all over the forest. Some finds would have been better if not broken.
  6. Spent the morning hunting. The water level was ridiculously high. A little friendly green snake was on the trail.
  7. Teeth

    Fish tooth from Douglas Point, MD. 3mm Not shiny like Drum Fish.
  8. Small teeth from Douglas.

    A few of the small shark teeth from today. Too many to take a pic of all. My favorite is the nurse.
  9. Small shark teeth

    Some tiny teeth from Douglas Point, Maryland today.
  10. Tooth, maybe?

    I’m thinking this is modern. Anyone know what this is from? 5 mm across
  11. Small vert

    Fish or reptile? Douglas Point, MD. 8 mm
  12. Fish teeth?

    I always find a lot of these when looking for small shark teeth at Douglas Point, MD. I’m guessing they are fish teeth. If not, might toss them.
  13. Douglas Point, small teeth

    Just decided to look at some of my small shark teeth (5 mm and less) from Douglas Point, since I can’t go hunting for awhile.
  14. Douglas Point, MD

    Decided to go to Douglas Point to get my daughter out of the house even though I knew it would be muddy and the water would be high.
  15. Got tired of being cooped up. I had to get out for a few hours.
  16. 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.
  17. Potomac River Trip

    Made my second trip back to Douglas Point on Wednesday. The weather was sunny and a little over 60 degrees. It was a perfect 3+ hours of sifting and surface searching. I had the entire beach to myself. The only negative to the day was the 4 hour ride home. Usually takes me 3 hours. I was hoping to find my first croc tooth but I will not complain since I found a nice otodus. Otodus Obliquus
  18. Bone or Shell?

    Turtle shell? Can’t get good light right now.
  19. Chimera - Calvert Museum

    I gave the chimera fin spine that I found at Douglas Point to the Calvert Marine Museum. They had mouth pieces and a cephalic hook, but no fin spine. I haven’t checked out the museum in years. It has a very nice fossil exhibit.
  20. Douglas Point sharktooth ID

    I found this tooth at Douglas Point on a hunt about a year and a half ago. I took it out tonight and the more I look at it I am wondering if it is a small baby Otodus? If not what else do you guys think it could be? It measures 13 mm wide and 15 mm slant
  21. Out of place tooth

    I’ve been searching through some micro recently and I found this little (about 1 cm) tooth. If someone were to show it to me I’d say it could be a lemon or maybe a carcharhinus lower. Of course if that’s what it were I wouldn’t be posting it here. The catch: this is from the Late Paleocene Aquia Formation. Am I just missing something incredibly obvious or what? I’ve never heard of a Paleocene carcharhinus or negaprion. Any thoughts?
  22. 8/19/17 Douglas Point

    Went on a hunt to add to my collection, as well as to gather trading material. Hunted about 2 hours and found more shark teeth than my attention span will allow me to count (I stoped counting at 40) only a few otodus and cretolamnas, one possible well worn croc, some bone pieces, and a ton of turritella internal molds. Only took one piece of lignite, lots in the banks (of course off limits). Tons of Ray teeth as always. No Paleocarcharodon or huge otoduses, but all in all a good trip. Here's the total haul:
  23. Perfect Potomac Sunday

    I went back to Douglas Point on Sunday, 8/13/17. A beautiful, sunny Maryland day. If you have never hiked this trail before, use bug spray & carry a stick to clear spider webs. I usually go around them when I can, but not everyone wants to go off the trail, so be prepared. I found around 10 teeth in 2 hours, including the ones in the photo. I do not know what species the tooth in the middle is from. Overall, good hunting. Didn't have to dig for any of the teeth this time, just worked the shoreline. The long tooth in the photo is my longest so far & the one in the middle is the widest so far. I did not find any other fossils or questionable items this time, just teeth. I hope to go back again this upcoming Sunday.
  24. 8/12/17 Douglas Point

    After this trip I decided that rather than another day take a two hour drive to Douglas point/purse state park that I would take the one hour drive from saint leonard. Eventually we got there, and I was amazed at the amount of shark teeth, the waves just brought them like sand. Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration but they were common. Here's my finds, feel free to offer opinions (I am especially hopeless with sharks teeth IDs) lignite? Tons of turritella there, I only took two
  25. 8/12/17 Matoaka Beach

    Yesterday I went on a pretty great hunt. First off let's start with Matoaka Beach, which is not incredibly crowded and had pretty views. Swimming however wouldn't be great since the water was overrun by jellyfish. I hunted for two hours and filled up a cardboard box (bad idea, gets soggy) with fossils. I'm a complete noob so I don't own a sieve (I'll probably get own eventually) so the hunt for sharks teeth was quickly abandoned (except for the elusive meg, one of which was found the day before I heard, 'bout 5 inches. I found none.) this place is SO much better than Calvert cliffs because you can actually hunt in front of the cliffs rather than the fossils having to be washed south (in the process being broken) my hunt for Ecphora was fruitless, only pieces. I have so many complete chesapectans I'm gonna have to make some sort of display case for them, I might have to do a contest because they are taking up to much space! I did find one top and bottom chesapecten (nefrens btw). This is all Choptank formation, I believe once you get to the power plant, the Calvert formation has dipped under. Without further ado, here are my finds from the first half of the day (might be a while before all are uploaded): 1) Astrhelia palmata 2) Panopea (sp.?) 3) chesapecten nefrens 4) stienkern with a little shell, don't know the genus/species
