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.

So, just for the curious who live in other places... what state are we talking about here?

The Potomac River on the Maryland side.

those are great finds. the one tooth on the top left looks like a paleocarcharodon tooth.

That is what I thought it was. I have only seen pictures so I thought one of you would know.

I believe that top left tooth is an example of Otodus obliquus.

Nice finds.  I've been hoping to head down there one weekend with my son and see what luck we can have.  I'm not sure we'll be able to make it before it's too cold to play at the edge of the water.
