    Megalodon from my creek

    Scientific Name: Carcharocles megalodon Geologic Age: Miocene clay Location: Southern Maryland, USA Date: April 19, 2020 I love searching our creek for interesting finds. Last summer we started discovering large fossilized scallops. Then recently I started finding various shark teeth and ray plates. I was thrilled to reach down and pull up a megalodon from the creek for the first time. It is about 3.5 inches long, slightly longer on the other side. My parents helped me document this find here, it's our first time posting and we think this is the right place for

    Calvert Cliffs Fossil Bones

    I found the two objects below yesterday along the Calvert Cliffs in Maryland (Miocene exposure). Any insights on what they might be? Thanks! #1 - I’m not totally sure this is a fossil at all, but could it be a dolphin/whale inner ear bone? (Would be my first.) #2 - I know isolated and incomplete bones are hard to ID, but I’m wondering if there’s enough here to identify the type of bone and maybe even type of animal.

    PG county (again)

    Ok I know I promised y’all some dinosaurs from Maryland. So here I go. I’ve seen a lot of posts lately about the Arundel formation and I’m glad that people are knowledgeable about Maryland’s past. Everyone wants to talk about Calvert cliffs and the stuff coming out of there and that’s great but it’s so rare to see someone talking about the dinosaurs that roamed Maryland 110 million years ago. Anyways, the amount of fossils I’ve found here is astounding, which is why this is going to be a long post. My finds from this area include petrified wood, plant material, dinosaur footprints, and dinosau

    PG county

    Ok I think I’m gonna be posting fairly regularly on this site from now on. So I’m a DC native, which means that the amount of fossils in dc are mostly sparse. However, neighboring PG county is a hotbed for all types of stuff! In the future, I’ll post my dinosaur stuff from here (still on my bucket list to find a tooth). In the mean time, I’ve just recently came back from southern PG county and I came away with some pretty cool stuff. The shells that come out of this creek are to die for. They’re some of the most intresting I’ve ever seen! But what I’m really excited about are the shark teeth!

    Calvert County Trip

    Took a trip down to Calvert County this past weekend and did some searching around the Matoaka Cabins and just outside of Flag Ponds Park. Think I did pretty well for a two day search!
  6. I found a nice exposure of the Arundel Clay recently. For those who don't know, the Arundel is an early Cretaceous unit known for it's dinosaur, plant, and other fossils, and is the only source of early Cretaceous dinosaurs east of the Mississippi River. I've been hitting the sites a fair bit over the past several weeks, finding a lot of really nice lignified and fossil wood and even some leaf imprints, amber, and what might be the imprint of a piece of bone or shell in a lump of clay. However, I recently found this specimen which has perplexed me. To start off; I'm f

    Potomic Paleocene Teeth ID Help Request

    I recently took a trip to Purse State Park, MD, U.S. and found this tooth fossil that I cannot identify. Because of the location (Potomic River), I assume it is Paleocene era. The fossil is 13 mm (0.5 inches) across. The pictures are of each side. Please help me identify this fossil.

    Calvert Cliffs MD

    This was found at Calvert Cliffs in Maryland. I’m not sure if it’s a super worn down tooth or something else.
  9. Here is a brief report from one of our latest forays into Calvert County, MD. The well-known stretch of shoreline along the western Chesapeake Bay is loaded with Miocene fossils, with the Calvert, St. Mary's, and Choptank formations progressively exposed along a ~24 mile stretch of beach and cliffs. We found an Airbnb in Lusby, MD which was not too far from Matoaka Lodges, which seemed the best bet since the nearly 2 mile walk to the beaches at Calvert Cliffs State Park is impractical for our family at this time. Covid-19 and Maryland's onerous private land regulations can make it
  10. For years I’ve had my macro fossils in drawers and my micro fossils in gem jar displays. Recently I’ve started putting some of my macro fossils in 8”X12” Riker mounts. Below are the Riker mounts that I now have. I’ll probably put together at least twenty of these. Below are two Riker mount displays with specimens from the Paleocene Aquia Formation from the Potomac River in the Liverpool Point, Maryland area. This display contains in the top crocodile vertebrae, a couple of crocodile leg bones, and two crocodile coprolites. I have larger crocodile vertebrae but they

    ID help on Shark Tooth

    I thought at first it might have been a small lower hemi but the more I looked at pictures, it also looked like it could be a symphyseal tooth. It is hard to see in the pictures but there are faint serrations on the tooth closer to the root. This was found near the Scientist Cliffs area of Calvert Cliffs. Thank you in advance!

    Skull I. D. Maryland

    Found this skull in a cliff in southern Maryland. Was dug out of grey clay in small cliff. Looks to be a Boar skull? Any ideas to the age?Miocene?
  13. 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!

    Stormy Shark Tooth Hunt

    I've had this weekend marked on my calendar for a few weeks to take advantage of favorable projected tides by going shark tooth hunting at Matoaka! The remnants of Hurricane Sally scrambled that forecast, bringing high winds and surf to Maryland, but I decided to head down this morning anyway. When I arrived, the sky was fairly clear, but there was a strong, steady wind generating a constant stream of waves, and the tide was well above normal, leaving only a narrow strip of beach. The beach opened up a little bit after I walked and waded north but the storm had dumped a layer of f

    Douglas Point, Maryland

    Was trying different areas, so I didn’t get as many of the small teeth that I like.
  16. I’ve recently bought some fossil shark teeth online to expand my collection beyond the local Maryland fauna (Miocene from the Calvert Cliffs and Paleocene from the Potomac River/Aquia Formation), and it occurred to me that perhaps there are some forum members who would be interested in sharing some of your finds or extras in exchange for mine. The things I have to offer are shown below—mostly fossil shark teeth and a few other things. These aren’t all perfect, but there’s a good variety, including some less common species. I’ve collected most of these myself and have also listed a

    Heading to DC

    Well my job has shifted me from West to East and now I will be visiting DC as. Part of my new territory. I have been fortunate to hunt in California but now will have the opportunity to add some east coast teeth to my collection. my question is where the best spot is to hunt with any short windows of time I have while I am in DC. Brownie’s appears to be about 45 minutes but wondering what other sites I should visit while I am there for business. Any onsite and tips for hunting this area would be greatly appreciated. Looking at tide charts it looks like I might get a little time as ti
  18. Dear TFF members, Ive taken a photo of all the shark teeth that I am having trouble identifying. Could anyone help point out if I got any ID's wrong? These were all found at Calvert Cliffs, MD. Top 3 rows near Choptank and St Marys Formation and bottom half underneath Calvert Formation. 1. Snaggletooth (serrations are similar on both, the first one has a strange enamel color) 2. First two are white sharks, probably plicatilis? Third, I have no clue 3. Requiem shark tooth (just suspicious because I've never found a tooth in the area with that color) 4. Pos

    Otodus obliquus?

    I found the tooth below this morning at Douglas Point (Aquia Formation, Paleocene) in Maryland. The cusp is fairly narrow, it's missing one cusplet and the other is small and/or worn down. But between the prominent lingual protuberance and what looks to me like a small bourlette, I'm getting an Otodus obliquus vibe. What do you think? I also found a tiny Cretalamna appendiculata -- just over a quarter of an inch.
  20. I have here a 3" piece of bone, found in Calvert Cliffs, Maryland. I'm not well-versed enough with these to narrow it down further from marine mammal, and am hoping that these photographs contain some identifying features that may be useful to one more familiar with these. Can it be narrowed down any further?
  21. I found my first megatooth today! This was found in Calvert Cliffs Maryland, on my second kayaking trip down the Calvert formation. My and my friend visited beaches as we kayaked from Chesapeake Beach to Breezy Point and back. I found this tooth about half way down. Unfortunately this will be my last trip down Calvert Cliffs for a long time, so I am very happy I found this! I believe this is Carcharocles Subauriculatus, could anyone verify this?
  22. We were able to get out to visit the Calvert Cliffs area over the weekend and enjoy the nice weather and lower tides. We were able to take the kayaks out, water was a bit choppy on the way out but as time passed the wind calmed down quite a bit for the return trip. After beaching my kayak, within a few feet of it, I found a very small chub (first for me) and in great condition! Within a few more minutes I spotted the small shark vert rolling in the surf and knew it was a good day already. After some more searching, my wife found the biggest of the mako's pictured. We were also able to find thr

    Claw?

    From Douglas Point, Maryland, I kept this because it looked like a claw, maybe turtle?

    Nice day at Douglas Point

    Water was high, but it was a nice day for hunting. Lots of mushrooms and a turtle on the trail.
