    Mystery jaw - Maryland Potomac

    Found this cool little jaw fragment last week on the Potomac in a section that has mostly Aquia paleocene exposure but also has some eocene and miocene. There is a very tiny unerupted tooth in one of the sockets which I hope will help with ID. It's hard to get a good image but the tooth looks flattish with a rounded tip, not conical and not pointy. Any ideas?

    PG county Aquia (one more time)

    I was going to do some more exploring of new areas (trying to find a Calvert exposure until I can get the boat in the water since everything’s closed) but I decided to go back here yet again. I made a pretty good decision I think because I found a bunch of shark teeth that are of decent size, and a killer shark and fish vertebrae. I also found a small block of Calvert formation here too, and I found a lot of it exposed on another piece of land a few weeks ago, but then turned around after seeing a bunch of “no trespassing” signs posted all up and down. Go figure. So until I find anot

    Potomac River Micros

    I recently brought home a gallon bag of Potomac River gravels (Paleocene, Aquia Formation), and have been searching through them for micros using my new digital microscope (the quite reasonably priced Plugable USB 2.0 Digital Microscope, which several others on TFF have recommended). I've found a number of shark teeth and have tentatively IDed many of them, though would appreciate corrections or confirmations, as well as thoughts on the unidentified ones. The tick marks in all of the photos below are millimeters. Thanks in advance for your help! 1. Abdounia

    Best day yet on the creek!

    This is from a two day trip to the same creek. The first trip I found some clues that there may be big teeth here due to the large ray plates I found (the first day was mostly rays so you can tell them apart kinda). I found a few small shark teeth and I called it a day. The next morning, I set out for the creek yet again and I knew I made a good decision because I was going to explore a new place. Sometimes it’s good to explore something uncharted another day. I found a lot of teeth including this beauty that tooth was absolutely flawless and came right out the formation. I found a lot more sh

    Mystery Bone Fragments?

    So, I know bone fragments are notoriously hard / impossible to fully identify. Unfortunately, they are my favorite things to pick up I am happy with most of my collection remaining unknown, but there are a couple pieces I feel may have more identifying characteristics? I'm very new to identifying fossils so please let me know if its something obvious or if they aren't even bone fragments to begin with! I will describe each piece and then post photos below. 1. Found at Douglas Point, Nanjemoy WMA in Maryland. Less than an inch long, black, grooved, shiny, looks a lot like many of m

    titanoboa vertebra

    It's been nearly two years since last I posted, but I'm back with one of my latest creations, a lifesize replica of a bone from Titanoboa cerrejonensis. The smaller bone next to it is a vertebra from a(n estimated) 10-12-foot anaconda which I used for reference. Enjoy!
  7. Paleocene plants in Central North Dakota are among the first fossils I've collected. Despite this I haven't given them the attention they are due lately. The preservation is very nice but due to various reasons they've taken a back seat to other outcrops in the state like the Cretaceous ones and I haven't thought about them for awhile. I am now reorganizing some of my Paleocene collection and a spark was reignited in me. I've decided to post some of the best examples here as a result. Come spring hopefully I can collect in additional Fort Union sites. The terrestrial Paleocene depo

    Potomac tooth ID?

    I found both of these on the Potomac in a unique site with Paleocene Eocene AND Miocene exposures. I was not able to identify them, does anyone know what they could be?
  9. Hi all, I just made my first trip out to Purse State Park/Nanjemoy WMA in Maryland. I found quite a lot of sand tiger teeth, but a couple pieces I could use some help to ID. I’ve got a photo of all of them and some close-ups of each one. #1 is clearly bone, and I suspect reptile, but turtle or crocodile? #2 appears to have some glossy enamel covering on one part but is this a severely damaged shark tooth or something else? #3 had more of a tortuous, twisted crown than any of the sand tigers I found. Could this still be sand tiger or possibly goblin shark? #4 looks like it could be part of a pl

    Shark Tooth Hunting in the Potomac

    A few weeks ago my girlfriend and I decided to take advantage of the unusually warm December weather in Northern Virginia to visit the historic Stratford Hall and make a couple quick stops at the Miocene deposits in Westmoreland State Park and Stratford Hall and the Paleocene deposits in Purse State Park. To say the least, this trip was planned a bit on a whim. I was thoroughly unprepared - lacking boots or waders and having to buy a cheap plastic colander at Target to do some sifting. Luckily the Potomac River was cold, but not that cold, so I was able to wade out in my bare feet up to about

    PG county

    Ok I think I’m gonna be posting fairly regularly on this site from now on. So I’m a DC native, which means that the amount of fossils in dc are mostly sparse. However, neighboring PG county is a hotbed for all types of stuff! In the future, I’ll post my dinosaur stuff from here (still on my bucket list to find a tooth). In the mean time, I’ve just recently came back from southern PG county and I came away with some pretty cool stuff. The shells that come out of this creek are to die for. They’re some of the most intresting I’ve ever seen! But what I’m really excited about are the shark teeth!

    Potomic Paleocene Teeth ID Help Request

    I recently took a trip to Purse State Park, MD, U.S. and found this tooth fossil that I cannot identify. Because of the location (Potomic River), I assume it is Paleocene era. The fossil is 13 mm (0.5 inches) across. The pictures are of each side. Please help me identify this fossil.

    Marine Paleocene Poop?

    One of my boys found this item while we were hunting at Douglas Point on the Potomac today. I think it could be a coprolite, maybe from a croc, but I am not experienced enough to know. Can anybody say yeah or nay?
  20. Over the weekend, I decided to take a trip to the Santa Monica mountains for a hike and a fossil hunt. There was information about the site in "NEW UPPER PALEOCENE SPECIES OF THE BIVALVE PLICATULA FROM SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA" by Richard L. Squires and Louella R. Saul, which contains Late Paleocene marine life. This is probably a good opportunity to warn fellow hunters that it is not a smart idea to go quickly up a canyon in near 100 degree heat. Under the early afternoon sun I walked too quickly and made the mistake of not pacing out the hike! Despite plenty of water intake I was sti
  21. I’ve recently bought some fossil shark teeth online to expand my collection beyond the local Maryland fauna (Miocene from the Calvert Cliffs and Paleocene from the Potomac River/Aquia Formation), and it occurred to me that perhaps there are some forum members who would be interested in sharing some of your finds or extras in exchange for mine. The things I have to offer are shown below—mostly fossil shark teeth and a few other things. These aren’t all perfect, but there’s a good variety, including some less common species. I’ve collected most of these myself and have also listed a

    Otodus obliquus?

    I found the tooth below this morning at Douglas Point (Aquia Formation, Paleocene) in Maryland. The cusp is fairly narrow, it's missing one cusplet and the other is small and/or worn down. But between the prominent lingual protuberance and what looks to me like a small bourlette, I'm getting an Otodus obliquus vibe. What do you think? I also found a tiny Cretalamna appendiculata -- just over a quarter of an inch.

    Stumped on Amelia Island, FL

    Longtime lurker, first time poster seeking ID assistance. I've collected for years and have hundreds of pieces from the Atlantic Ocean beaches of Northeastern Florida. I'll post a vertebra shortly that I'd love some help ID'ing, but I've never seen anything like the two pieces below that washed ashore post Hurricane this summer. If someone tells me they are geologic and not fossil, I wouldn't be shocked but they are stone, not shell, and have the same color and density as the other fossil bone shards I find on Cumberland Island in Georgia, Amelia Island in Florida and nearby.

    Amelia Island, FL Vertebra

    Anyone provide help with an ID on this vertebra? Try as I might, as a serious amateur I've hit the limits of my abilities and could use the collective wisdom. Assumption is that this is a vertebra. Found on the beach on Amelia Island, Florida. I find fossils there routinely and live there part of the year. I find this Forum invaluable to gain knowledge.

    Aquia ID Help

    Recently took a trip to Douglas Point and found this odd shaped piece in matrix. Not sure if it is anything or just some sort of concretion, appreciate any help! Thank you
