sharkdoctor posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsFor several years, @Gizmo and I have been working to grow a collection of vertebrate fossils from the Eastover formation for the Calvert Marine Museum and for our own study. We've developed a wide range of stream sites along the central Atlantic Coastal Plain and have collected a variety of vertebrates ranging from pinnipeds to fishes. This summer, @WhodamanHD and @HoppeHunting joined us to tackle some of the more difficult sites. Below are some bits and bobs from our trips this summer. This was a team effort so we thought it might be fun for this post to be a collective effort as well.
Hi TFF, I'd love your help identifying the cetacean tooth pictured below. I found the tooth below while fossil hunting in eastern Virginia with @Gizmo. The tooth is from the base of the Claremont Manor member of the Eastover Formation. The color and condition indicate that it has been reworked from the underlying Calvert Formation. Thanks in advance for any help or comments!
