    Astragalus Bone

    From the album: Calvert Cliffs

    Dicotyles protervus (?) Found in the water off of Flag Ponds Nature Park, this was an exciting and strange discovery. I brought it home expecting it to be some cetacean bone that I could not identify, but had no luck searching for a match at home. After digging on my own, and with the help of forum members, the staff at Flag Ponds, and the paleontological curatorial staff at Calvert Marine Museum, it was finally identified as a peccary astragalus bone (approximately rear knee joint) matching one in the museum's collection. Although it is a land animal found in an area that was a sea during

    Indoor Aquia Formation Hunt

    With all of this bitter cold weather here in Eastern NC the last couple of days, I have spent the time indoors searching some matrix from the Paleocene Aquia Formation, Piscataway member Charles County Maryland. Also cataloging and photographing my finds. I thought I would share some of the photo's here. I have tried to ID the teeth as best as possible, if anyone has any other thoughts on these please feel free to post them. Anomotodon novus .... Unknown, possibly Scyliorhinus sp. or Abdounia sp. ...... Brachycarcharias lerichei .... Cretalamna appendiculata ... D

    Possible Short-Finned Mako

    Went to northern calvert cliffs a week ago and found this shark tooth. I think it is a short-finned mako shark tooth, but I would like a second opinion. It is not worn, which is nice. I found it along calvert formation, if that helps.

    Could Use Help With This Bone

    I found this bone as float at randle cliffs, several weeks ago, and I am having trouble id'ing it. Do any of you guys have an idea of who it came from?

    Trip To Brownies

    This past Saturday, I went down to Randle Cliffs to look for some fossils. I actually got there first but not for very long. I wasnt having much luck at first, but once the people caught up to me, I started finding bone fragments. At one spot I found some interesting bone fragments; a bird bone and a shell fragment from a turtle. I found a lot of shark teeth and more bone fragments. Can anyone confirm that these two are a turtle bone fragment and a fossilized miocene bird bone.
  22. A couple weeks ago, I took my cousin to calvert cliffs and it was not too great in terms of collecting. I went this past sunday and the results were much better. I met a nice young couple, whom I talked with a bit while walking along the cliffs. They found two parital megs that were just sitting on a rock; very lucky. I found mostly bone fragments and some verts. I found two of the verts next to each other in the mud. There were two different teeth that I found that I have not been able to id. I have attached them and I was wondering if any of the regulars to the cliffs know whom these

    New Prehistoric Fish @ Calvert Cliffs

    I was excited to hear about the new species of tilefish they found last month. Cool lookin' guy. And then this fun snaggletooth shark was found on Halloween! Great month for Calvert Marine Museum's paleontologist.
  24. Found in the Calvert Cliffs surf -- it looks a bit like some symphyseal upper cow shark (Notorhynchus) teeth that I've seen, but I'm not certain. Confirmations, corrections, and/or suggestions very welcome -- thanks! Labial view Lingual view Proximal view
  25. Hi everyone! I'm new to this site (signed-up-5-mins-ago new, lol), and I have a question. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture, because I wasn't thinking and sent it to school with my daughter, who is studying fossils in class. Anyway, my husband and I took our daughter fossil-hunting on a trail in Frostburg, MD (Allegany Co.). As a kid, I used to go through shale piles at my grandpa's farm and occasionally run across a fern fossil, and since this particular trail (down from the train depot, Allegany Highland trail, perhaps?) has lots of shale on the sides, I thought it would be a good pl
