    Maryland Adventures

    I finally was able to take the family down for a short trip to Maryland this past weekend in hopes of finding some shark teeth. Despite the heavy crowds everywhere we went we able to have a fun filled weekend. We started off Saturday morning and were the first on the beach at Flag Ponds Nature Park. The tide was coming in but we still managed to pick up a few teeth. Our best find there was a nice mako, almost and inch. We stayed there until lunch, took a break and went off to Matoaka cottages for the afternoon/evening. We didn’t find nearly as many teeth there but were able to fin

    Help with fossil.

    Found at flag pond park in Maryland. Not like any of the shark teeth I found.
  3. Hi, We are doing a unit on geology/paleontology in our homeschool with the fossils we find. I was wondering if anyone knows the difference between the Aquia and Nanjemoy formations. I know wikipedia is not perfect but I am not an expert and it lists them as separate formations albeit both from the Paleogene. I have read Paleocene/Eocene border for the Aquia formation. Is that correct? The Nanjemoy formation I had not read about before today. Is it just the same thing on the Maryland side of the River instead of the Virginia side? Thanks for the help,
  4. Hello, Here are some more of our findings from our 2 brief trips to Purse Park. I think the shark teeth are Odontaspis winkleri but am not sure. I have no idea on the small cream tooth other than its probably from a fish . . . (to me it looks surprisingly rodentlike though)?? And the hollow black bit which I initially took to be a casting from an invert burrow I figured can't be since it is hollow. Anybody have any ideas?? Thanks, Kate

    Stratolamia striata?

    Hello, I am new here and new to fossil identification. These are shark teeth from the Aquia formation on the Maryland side of the Potomac. They come from Charles County. I have shark teeth of the world and so my IDs are based on that and the internet. I think all of these are Stratiolamia striata based on the grooves. Ruler is in mm and squares are 1/4" on each side. The last picture with only 2 teeth nearly touching seem different to me in that the striations don't extend very far up onto the teeth (unlike the others where they cover much of the crown. I am not sure if S. m

    Mystery Shark's teeth

    Hello, These are also from our hunt in the Aquia formation of Charles Co. MD. Sharks of the world didn't give me much insight. The only species that I noticed where the enamel extends out on to the roots like this is the extinct goblin shark Anomotodon novus. I definitely have some teeth from that species I think but these are substantially different. These are larger, more robust and the have the cool extended enamel and bumps/cusplets on the shoulders of the labial side. Any thoughts?? (ruler in mm and squares 1/4") Kate

    I found what appears to be a fossilized tooth on the shore of the Tidal Potomac River in MD. Could you help with the identification? Thanks!

    Finds from Flag Ponds in MD

    Hello! All of these are from two trips to the Flag Ponds Nature Park in Maryland I've made recently. Tried to do some identifying on my own with the Fossil Shark Teeth of the World book from Joe Cocke (ISBN 0-9715381-3-1), but there's so many to compare against that I'm not sure I'm even on the right track for the ideas that I had. And that's not even counting my few mystery teeth! Some more expert opinions than mine would be greatly appreciated. The first photo is all of the teeth that I found. Unfortunately, I seemed to have lost the little teeeeny tiny tooth when I was sorting t
  9. Over the past few months work has been crazy (although in a VERY good way) and I haven't had the time to post summaries of my past few trips to the Calvert Cliffs formation. Long stories short, I was able to get down to the cliffs on a few occasions between Feb-April 2019. Most of the time I was able to go when tides were good, however on my most recent trip they were horrible. I've met a lot of awesome people along the beach and developed many good friendships...in fact I think that 95% of the people I met have been extremely friendly, genuine, willing to give advice, and just plain good peop

    Purse state park bivalve?

    Hi everyone, During a trip to Purse state park in Nanjemoy MD, I found an odd "rock" while looking for sharks teeth. It appears to be shaped like some kind of mussel or other bivalve. Any ideas what it might be? Unfortunately I don't have anything to measure it with, but it is approximately 2 1/2 inches long.

    Calvert Cliffs, MD id help please

    This was found on our trip to Calvert Cliffs, MD on the shore line. Dear husband thinks it's just a weird rock, but sons wanted to save it in case it was more. We're coming up with nothing with our novice search for what it could be, if anything. Any ideas or advice would be really appreciated! Thank you.

    ID Wood, Iron, bones in MD?

    New to the sport. Found these yesterday at Calvert Cliffs and along the Potomac River. Big debate was weather the largest piece was bark that had been replaced by iron of if it was just a clump of iron from the bog. Several larger pieces observed on site in the cliffs and on the beach- some said they were wood; other just "bog iron". Please critique or help with id. Thank you.

    Bayfront Park 03/30/19

    Hey everyone, A few days ago I finally got back out to Bayfront Park. According to the local forecast, it was going to be a cloudy day, but there was enough space in the sky during the sunrise for the sun to peek through and create a marvelous display of colors. I always love the scenery at Brownies, and that day was especially beautiful. The tide was relatively low when I arrived, but since I got there just after peak low tide, the water was rising for the entire time I was there, and it rose much faster than I would've liked. I didn't find any big teeth, but overall still had a g
  15. [WARNING: As is my custom, this trip report is exceedingly long, verbosely worded, and copiously illustrated with photos.] (It may be a good idea to find a comfy chair and grab a drink and some popcorn.) Since Tammy's retirement earlier this year, we've been busier than ever. We finally made it to Iceland this summer and saw dozens (if not literally hundreds) of waterfalls in that geologically interesting country. While talking about waterfalls ("fossar" in Icelandic), Tammy had realized that I had somehow not yet seen Niagara Falls. Tammy did not do a lot of vacati
  16. Hi all, For whatever reason, I never got around to posting this. After a relatively unsuccessful day at Bayfront Park back in 2018, my dad showed me this tooth, unsure of what it was. He said he had found it while sifting in the creek that runs under the bridge near the entrance of the park. I had never really bothered trying around that area because it was so far from any cliff exposures, but I suppose he proved that some of the best finds may be where you least expect them. The second he pulled out this tooth, my jaw dropped. It is a FLAWLESS cow shark symphyseal. I hadn't had a

    Calvert Cliffs

    Hello there guys. Im planning to go to calvert cliffs this Saturday 3/9/19. Any suggestions on where to go and how i can maximize my chances of finding good fossils? Ive only ever fornd shark teeth at Myrtle Beach. Any help is awesome.
  18. Nothing to crazy going on today. My wife found this piece of bone and she wants to know what it is. My initial thought is it was some random piece of croc but now that I’m looking at it closer I’m really unsure. Take a look tell me what you think
  19. Hey all, The Calvert Cliffs have been falling left and right recently. Countless cliff slides have led to plenty of new material becoming accessible on the beaches, but the unstable cliffs also call for extra caution. I decided to return to my favorite winter hunting location, Bayfront Park, to try and take advantage of the cliff falls. I thought it would be a good opportunity to film my first YouTube video, which I have been wanting to do for a while, so I brought my new handheld camera mount. Peak low tide was exactly at sunrise, so I woke up at 4 a.m. in order to arrive at the b
  20. Hi Folks, Usually during spring break I am at work making maple syrup but this coming week it will be too cold for the sap to flow. I am planning a trip south from CT and would like to check out fossils in PA, MD, and WV. I'll probably leave March 6th and return March 10th or 11th. Certainly want to check out the Calvert Cliffs and see what I can find in PA and WV. Any tips or advice on location would be really appreciated, or, if you want to meet-up that would be even better. It is so great to meet other fossil enthusiasts. I don't mind the cold and could help out with gas money

    Look what washed up on the beach! Scratches on it may be tooth marks. Found on Matoaka Beach, Calvert County, Maryland

    Id please

    Can anyone ID these two teeth for me please. Thanks!
  23. After the long month without fossil hunting, we decided to go to Purse on a free weekend. Now that it is a former state park, it's a lot harder to find because there is no address to it, so hopefully it can recover from some of the hunting that has taken place upon it's shores. I really, really wanted some nice Macrotas after all the talk I had heard about them, and thankfully, Purse didn't disappoint. It was the middle of hunting season there, and we werent wearing anything particularly bright, it was a little nerve racking hearing the boom of gunshots far of in the distance. We started by go
  24. Headed out to the potomac this morning and man was it nice out. Hit low tide and made my way to the cliffs, which all fallen right now btw. Found some nice sand tigers today’s and some smaller beaten otodus. Highlights of the day were a nice little croc tooth and a croc vert which is a first for me. I don’t seem to find much bone in the Aquia formation.
  25. Looking to find out as much about this vertebrae piece found at Calvert Cliffs, MD.
