  1. Hello all! I recently rearranged my collection so I figured this would be a good time to show some fossils! I usually hang-out in the New Jersey Cretaceous but I have been collecting fossils for over 25 years and have found some pretty cool specimens of creatures from many different eras, That said, my collection is mainly focused on the New Jersey Cretaceous, so let's start there. These are my displays for New Jersey Cretaceous non-reptile fossils. My favorites aren't actually fossils at all but rather casts of some of my favorite finds. The crab, Costadrom
  2. Hi all, New here. I hope I am posting in the right section and that you guys can help me! We have spent a few days in Maryland (US) and I found this thing at the beach. I found it in an area with some fossilized shells in the sand by a muddy hill. It is pretty light and it doesn't look like the shark teeth I have seen in the past. I dont think it is a funny-shapped rock either. Is it something interesting or just an old chicken bone? Any help would be appreciated

    Maryland Eocene shark teeth

    The two shark teeth below are recent personal finds from the Nanjemoy Formation (early Eocene) in Maryland. I'd appreciate any help in ID'ing them. #1: Jaekelotodus robustus? I've been calling this one Jaekelotodus robustus and am curious if that's correct. This tooth measures 27 mm on the slant. #2: Brachycarcharias lerichei? This second tooth has me stumped. I'm leaning toward Brachycarcharias lerichei, but would not be surprised to find out it's s

    Maryland Paleocene sand tiger tooth

    I found the tooth below a couple of months ago at a Maryland Paleocene (Aquia Formation) site. Am I correct that it's Hypotodus verticalis? Thanks in advance for your help! The tooth measures just under 28 mm on the slant.
  5. First I suspect is a worn ray tooth but am a bit thrown by the shape. The second I really have no clue on. Would be very grateful for any help with these. Thanks!

    Tiger shark symphyseal tooth?

    I was going through some of my shark teeth from the Calvert Cliffs (Miocene) in Maryland, and this Galeocerdo aduncus tooth caught my eye due its somewhat unusual shape (not including the fact that it's broken on one corner). I'm wondering if it might be a symphyseal tooth. From reading past forum posts, it seems like there's a range of Galeocerdo symphyseal shapes, from symphyseals that are pretty symmetrical to ones that are less so (such as mine, if it is one). For those more familiar with these teeth than I am, what do you think?
  7. Found this today at calvert cliffs. The only things I could think of that it could be were a juvenile porpoise or crocodile tooth. Anyone have any thoughts?
  8. Made my second ever trip to Calvert cliffs (went to Calvert cliffs state park). The first trip last year was fun, but I didn't really find any of the big shark teeth that I couldn't find near home at Big Brook in New Jersey. This time I did much better. Stopped on the way home from a family vacation and finally got some of the things I'd been hoping for. Still no megalodon teeth, but maybe next time! Got only a small handful of shark teeth, but was lucky to get two very nice hemipristis teeth, one of which was in absolutely stunning condition. Also got so many stingray teeth I star

    Good sites in Maryland

    Hi all, Long time Central Texas area creek hunter here. I've now moved back to Maryland and I'm not quite sure where to take my canoe for fossil hunts, or what creeks are walk/wade-able. I have the area geology in tow, and would like to direct my attention to the cretaceous swath across anne arundel county, but I don't want to get in anyone's way, or launch into a river without hearing some area wisdom first. Thanks!

    Into the Eocene

    Most of my Maryland fossil hunts are at well-known Paleocene and Miocene spots. A few weeks ago, I got an itch to try something new and after studying a state geologic map and aerial photos, I found a potentially promising Maryland exposure of the less accessible Nanjemoy Formation (Eocene). It's an out-of-the-way spot and a lengthy trek along a river from the nearest public access point. As I discovered, it’s also kind of a brutal hike due to the number of downed trees and other vegetation lining the banks, forcing you to mostly travel through murky knee deep and hig

    Douglas Point, MD teeth

    Tried a 1/20 inch sifter to collect sand to take home. Here are my finds.

    Not too bad a day. Sifting for small teeth. Got my third nurse shark tooth today.

    Douglas Point 6-16-21

    Drove down from Jersey to Douglas Point on Tuesday. Only my second time there, and I was worried that I'd make the 4 hour drive and it'd be crowded. Only one car when I got there around 1pm, and another pulled up as I was unpacking my gear. The narrow beach was pretty much open as the first vehicle was a family wayyy down over to the left playing in the water with a raft and the other was a lone fossil hunter hand searching the tide debris line. Beautiful day and I guess my take was pretty much around average for the site. I'm quite fine with that and I look forward to returning. Mo

    Potomac

    Water was high today, but just like this tree, I didn’t give up. Not as many teeth as I usually get. I get distracted. My first tooth of this type.

    Douglas Point 6-4-21

    I went out to Douglas Point (Paleocene, Aquia Formation) in Maryland yesterday to see what fossils the recent rains helped bring out. I tried last weekend as well, but I didn't find a ton as it was too close to the storms and the Potomac River was running choppy and high with little beach exposed, even at low tide. Yesterday the water was calmer and lower and I had a more successful hunt. It's definitely the time of year for snakes! (They're almost all non-venomous around here.) I encountered this one a few minutes into my hunt and saw four others throughout the day.

    Paleocene bone

    I found the small bone below yesterday while out at Douglas Point in Maryland, which exposes the Aquia Formation (Paleocene - Thanetian). It has the look and feel of fossilized bones from the area and it passed the burn test, so I'm fairly sure it's a fossil. This is the most complete bone I've found at this site. Any ideas what it might be from? Side 1: Side 2: Side 3: Side 4: Ends:

    Douglas Point Shark Tooth ID Help

    Went out to Douglas Point (Potomac River, MD, Paleocene, Aquia Formation) on June 5th, first time taking the kids and we had a great time. Found a lot of sand tiger teeth as is typical. But this one has me a little stumped. The crown seems too wide at the base to be a sand tiger tooth. Could it be a small or juvenile Otodus? Or is it some kind of sand tiger after all?

    Maryland fossil? Maybe tooth?

    Live in Southern Maryland. Found this in creek feeding to the Patuxent River. Have no idea if it’s a plant or tooth or tusk of some kind. Also have found many Miocene shark teeth, a wild boar skull from the 1500s, and arrow heads. Thanks for the help

    Otodus obliquus parasymphyseal?

    I found this perfect little tooth today along the Potomac River in Maryland (Paleocene, Aquia Formation), which I think may be an Otodus obliquus parasymphyseal. The root isn't as oversized as megatooth shark parasymphyseals I've seen posted elsewhere on the forum, but it sure looks like an Otodus, is laterally compressed, and is quite tiny compared to other Otodus I've found. @MarcoSr, @siteseer, @Al Dente, and others, what do you think? This tooth bears similarities to another I found from this location several weeks ago (tooth on the right

    Mississippian Track in Sandstone?

    This one comes from a friend. He found this on a piece of sandstone that had fallen from an outcrop. With his GPS coordinates, it’s close to the border of the Greenbriar and the Mauch Chunk Formation. It looks like a modern mammal track to me, with 4 toe pads and a central pad. But I’ve identified 0 fossil animal tracks so far, so it might just be a strange arrangement of shapes. Mammals doesn’t fit, as it’s 100 million years too early. Synapsids are officially 10 million years out. So I’m at a loss. Anyone good with tracks?

    Douglas Point, MD

    I went shark tooth hunting on the 8th of May. When I got to the shore, I decided to fill a ziplock bag with the sand and shells to take home and search for small fossils later. I’ve never done it and was curious in what I would find.
  22. Hey all, quick question. I am currently in school in the Harrisburg, PA region and am limited in trying to stay under an hour and a half drives for spots. I noticed some posts about shark teeth in the Potomac river but most of what I could find was that these sites are more near the D.C. area. I was wondering if anyone here knew if all of the Potomac had fossils to find or if it is strictly along certain areas of erosion off of the cliffs that the Potomac cuts through? I think either way over the summer I am going to try to end up at the Aquia formation but was wondering if I coul
  23. I hit the Potomac yesterday after a long hiatus for some Paleocene sharks teeth. I also decided to include a few of my finds from the recent Stratford hall trip, which was pretty decent. I always go to Douglas point for my Paleocene teeth because it’s just a good area and I almost always come back with a complete otodus. This time, that didn’t happen, though I did find a few broketodus teeth so meh. But I did come back with some good stuff, including a monster croc tooth, and a gigantic goblin sharks tooth. I also got a fish jaw with a lot of teeth in it and some other nice stuff, in addition

    Fish mouth plate?
