Nice haul! 

I think Ecphora is a really beautiful shaped gastropod.

Excellent finds! I have yet to find a complete ecphora even close to that size. A great day of hunting for sure

Is there something there? I can’t see it on my iPhone. Anyway, I don’t get speechless when I see that nice Ecphora brown popping out of clay, I exclaim in joy! Gosh people must hate when I’m on the beach...

So to make up for the rain yesterday i walked all day today. I went sharks tooth hunting in the morning and found a huge sand tiger and a nice posterior meg, then a buddy of mine who lives down south was nice enough to ask me if I wanted to hunt down his way. So i scrambled off the beach and headed south. Well I was lucky enough to find a bunch of my FAVORITE fossil the ecphora!!! I was also able to collect a bunch of shell for mom not to shabby!!!

Looks like you were in the St. Marys Formation.  Chesapeake Ranch Club?
