    Calvert trip

    Hi everyone. Im pretty new here but recently made the trip to the cliffs to see if I could come up with anything. This was my first time actually "fossil hunting" and i think it wont be the last! It was gorgeous out there but unfortunately i didnt find much. Some coral and barnacle fossil fragments and a decent little Ecphora. Bummed that i didnt find any teeth but im glad for my time out on the beach. If I could also pick your brains. I have some private land available to me on the upper eastern shore/delaware, from what i can find all the area was underwater at least since around

    Ecphora Species Help

    I recently found this Ecphora in an exposure of the Late Pliocene Yorktown Formation, Rushmere Member in Virginia. I was really excited to find it. Sadly the final whorl is missing but I will take a 98% complete Ecphora any day. Ward lists Ecphora quadricostata as the only Ecphora from the Yorktown Formation. This may be Ecphora quadricostata but the ribs are not as prominent at the opening so I was not sure. I know that there are many Ecphora experts on here so before I put down the wrong identification I thought I might as well check with others. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Matoaka 1-30-21

    I made it out to Matoaka yesterday before today’s snowstorm and had a successful Maryland Miocene hunt, despite a large amount of ice obscuring the shoreline. (I won’t complain about the cold after @RuMert’s trip report yesterday. ) I found an unusually high number of cetacean vertebrae and cookies (epiphyses), several Ecphoras, shark teeth, and some other nice finds. This Carcharodon hastalis tooth was waiting for me when I arrived on the beach. And this cookie was just a few feet away. Off to a good start! Heading north, the ice got progressiv

    Mystery ecphora

    I love the ecphora for their improvisations but... I’ve searched the photos from Ward and Petuch for anything similar to this ecphora from the James River in Virginia. It’s a globose shell with six distinct costae. specimen is three inches long.
  5. Hello everyone. It's been a while since I posted a trip report, but I thought I would share my finds from yesterday. The rivers here in eastern North Carolina have been at un-collectible levels for the most part since last September when Hurricane Florence paid us a visit. Well, looking at the levels on the Tar for the last week or so, I saw a golden opportunity to hit the Tar right as the river dropped to a collectible level. And hopefully be the first one there! I had the day off and a fossil Buddy took a half day off of work. We hit a total of about 15 locations, all Rushmere me
  6. I have been looking into Maryland fossil sites, and am trying to plan a day trip, but I realize it is Labor day weekend, which can complicate things. How busy do the usual fossil beaches get in Maryland? I currently have Purse, Matoaka, and Calvert Cliffs on my list Should I just wait til next weekend? When is the best time to hit the beaches? I am especially looking for a Ecphora gardnerae, if there are any sites which would be better to focus my search at? Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you!
  7. Hi guys! I went out with one of my kids today to the Calvert Cliffs to see what we could find after the thunderstorms this week. We hit the beach around 9:00 and spent about 4 hours. It was calm with very clear water and favorable tide conditions. We weren't disappointed. We found a bit of eveything--some decent makos, hemis, and tigers, a couple of verts, some turtle shell, croc skin (I think), a mostly complete ecphora, a cookie fragment, some cool bone, and other stuff. We didn't find anything enormous, but we were happy with the variety. Enjoy the pic. If anyone has any idea what the d
  8. Hello all! On Sunday, I realized that Monday would be an amazing day to go shark tooth hunting so I took the chance and went. I arrived at Bayfront park at 8 am and did not find anything significant. I found small teeth, some petrified wood, and a broken shark vertebrae. After realizing that I was not going to find anything too impressive, I drove to Matoaka and encountered the same luck. I asked around and supposedly everyone I met was finding only small teeth as well. The best finds of the day were an angel shark tooth and a fairly intact ecphora. - Timmy

    Growth on ecphora gardnerae germonae

    Wondering what this is on this ecphora gardnerae germonae gastropod from st marys formation. Possibly barnacle related but doesn't resemble normal barnacle base from the area.

    rapp creek hunting

    Beautiful day, lots of spring peeper frogs everywhere. Creek looked like it had been extensively worked while I have been away. Broken shells and torn down banks showed the local kids(?) have been busy. Everything greening up, yet not a lot of mosquitoes, water levels dropping. Hunting was mediocre, found four ecphorae in other people's tailings, none perfect (one encrusted with barnicles, not shown). Lots of small teeth (but no cow shark or angel shark teeth), some skate pieces, a few broken drum teeth, a nice fin Tilly bone. With Spring turkey season coming up soon, I'll be staying aw

    Hop 5 03/30/19

    1. Hemipristis serra: One of my first teeth of the day, found in the water. Small, but nice colors and perfect serrations. 2. Carcharias cuspidata: Flawless sand tiger. Symmetrical and super sharp, with both double cusplets intact. 3. Galeocerdo aduncus: Gorgeous tiger, almost looks like a G. cuvier because of size. Very nice root to crown contrast. 4. Odontocete tooth: Little porpoise/dolphin tooth with a long, thick root. In very good condition. 5. Ecphora sp.: A very nice small Ecphora, nearly complete, just missing the white part at the top.

    rapp creek hunting

    My hip is bothering me, but we've had beautiful weather the last few days so I had to get out. Ended up being a short trip. Most of what I found was broken and small and about half as many teeth as usual, but I tried. Tape is in cm. A three inch ecphora, but missing a tail. Two or three skate stinger pieces. A nice but hard to scan cowshark upper, and pieces, some fin tilly bones, a few angel shark and drum. Lots of animal tracks along the creek but no frogs, crawfish or salamanders, just scud shrimp.
  14. Spent a cold, soggy day on a private trip along the Potomac yesterday. The mud was so saturated that we were sinking up to our knees where the sand met the mud at the base of the cliffs. It was totally worth it! Came home with treasures untold until I finish unpacking. I know there are some really nice whale vertebrae in there, including the one below. There are also a couple nice Ephora snails and what looks like maybe an echinoid -- really rare for the area if it is! My daughter found a couple snaggletooth shark teeth that are actually iridescent and blew me away! Here's a video report of t

    rapp creek hunting

    Hoping to get out before the weather turned colder, headed to the freshwater creek; the water was still high and extremely cold. I was surprised when I reached "my" cowhark teeth spot to discover that someone have shoveled deep into the creek bank leaving a gaping hole; not sure if they hauled the sand, dirt and gravel away or if they just dumped in in the creek to separate stuff in the abundant flowing water. I scratched around anyway and found stuff (like always) but no cowshark and no big teeth, only a few angel shark teeth and drum teeth. There were lots of small broken ecphora laying

    Cleaning Ecphora

    I've had this hanging around the house for a while, and thought I'd see if there's some suggestions for getting the limestone/ coral and barnacle growth off this rather large Ecphora (about 5 inches). Read about water with vinegar or bleach, but that sounds way too harsh. Thanks.

    Matoaka Beach 11/07/18

    Hi all, I finally made the trek to Matoaka Beach, a fossil collecting site along the Calvert Cliffs on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. The beach is accessible to the public for $5 per person per day. Once we arrived, we reported to the front office where the property owner and his adorable newborn daughter were happy to collect our fee and give us access to the beach along with advice on how to best hunt the grounds. He advised us to head North (left of the entrance), which was what I had also read online. Apparently, the farther North you head, the better the

    rapp creek hunting

    Made a final trip into the woods prior to opening of deer season here. Don't think they'll bother me if I avoid disturbing their game a few days before hunts. We had a lot of rain and shells and bits were everywhere in the creek. Surprising that I didn't spot much in the creek bed, but screening yielded the usual small stuff I find (eight angel shark teeth and a bunch of drum teeth-- tried to stand then flip over--, pieces unfortunately of two cow shark teeth, lots of sand tiger shark spikes, tiny teeth). Nothing big. Picked up an almost intact ecphora, bigger busted ones washed out everyw

    Tiniest Ecphora Ever

    Last week on a trip to the Tar River I brought home several decent sized Ecphora quadricostata along with an assortment of other gastropods and bivalves. This was on the same trip I found the Gannet ulna. While cleaning matrix from one of the larger ecphora's today, I found this teenie tiny ecphora quadricostata. It is 13.6 mm (.53 inch) long and 11.4 mm (.45 inch) wide. Here it is in a standard 4.35 inch by 3.35 inch riker mount.
  23. 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!!!
  24. Hello everyone, I apologize for the delay in making my report, but my latest trip was delayed by an upper respiratory infection. I took this past week off from work, with plans to visit both Matoaka and Flag Ponds, but then the virus hit and so goes the best laid plans of mice and fossil hunters. By Thursday, after four days of long naps and lots of fluids, I decided I was well enough to make the hour and a half drive down. I also thought that some sunshine would do me good. The day was gorgeous, not the normal, swampy heat that my home state of Maryland is known for. We call it,
