  1. Dear Fossil Forum Members, My friend recently found this bone-looking piece on the beach near the St Marys formation at Calvert Cliffs. We have heard that many of the bones washing up are fragments of whale or dolphin bones. Since this piece is so big, we are thinking its some sort of whale bone. Could anyone please help verify this? Sorry there are no proper forms of measurement, for reference the piece is roughy 4.5in (11.5cm) wide and 6.5in (17cm) long. Here are some photos:

    What kinds of makos are these?

    The three shark teeth below are all from the Calvert Cliffs (Miocene) in Maryland. I have the two on the left (A. and B.) tentatively identified as Isurus desori, but I'm still learning my mako IDs, including the differences between true makos and Carcharodon hastalis. Hopefully these are identifiable despite their root conditions. I don't know if the tooth on the right (C.) is identifiable or not. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Fish teeth?

    I always find a lot of these when looking for small shark teeth at Douglas Point, MD. I’m guessing they are fish teeth. If not, might toss them.

    Cretaceous long bone?

    Found this in a marine late cretaceous formation in Maryland. Two bones that were immediately associated with each other. I thought the flat bone was turtle when I saw it, but this other bone was just underneath it. Now I really dont know what I am looking at. help?

    Modern fish bone/dermal denticle?

    I found the object below recently while on a non-fossiliferous beach on Maryland's eastern shore (Atlantic Ocean side). It's not a fossil, though I'm hoping someone here might know what it is. The pointy end on what I'm calling the "top" is translucent, hard, and looks toothy. My first thought was possibly a dermal denticle, though I'm not sure the tripod "base" is right for that. The whole thing is light but fairly solid--i.e., while I haven't wanted to break it, it doesn't bend when I apply moderate pressure. Any ideas on what this is?
  6. I had Friday off and decided to head out to Matoaka Beach to do some shark tooth hunting along the Calvert Cliffs. I arrived bright and early and soon came across a decent-sized Hemi. Unfortunately, it was incomplete: missing one side of the root, some serrations, and part of the blade. That turned out to be the theme of the morning as I continued to find several other partial Hemis on the beach. When I finally found a complete tooth, it was in the 0.5- to 0.75-inch range, which is typically the size I find here. While I’ve found several tanta

    Small posterior megs?

    I found these two shark teeth recently on separate hunts along the Calvert Cliffs in Maryland (Miocene exposures). I believe they're both small posterior megalodon teeth, which would make them my first found megs (aside from a previous small sliver of a tooth). They're both just over 2/3 of an inch slant height and clearly have some wear, though hopefully there are enough identifiable features here. The tooth on the right appears to have a thin bourlette; it's harder to see on the left, but I think there's one there as well. Both teeth have faint serrations, which you can see in the upper left

    Douglas Point

    Had to take a day off from work to take advantage of a day without rain. There were mushrooms all over the forest. Some finds would have been better if not broken.

    Ray tooth?

    Found at Douglas Point, MD yesterday.

    Very worn cow shark tooth?

    I found this small fossil along the Calvert Cliffs (Miocene exposure) in Maryland. My first thought was a jaw bone with teeth, but my working hypothesis now is that it's a very worn cow shark tooth (Notorynchus sp.). What do you think?
  11. I found this shark tooth a few weeks ago along the Calvert Cliffs (Miocene exposure) in Maryland and categorized it as Carcharodon hastalis. Looking at it again, I think it's perhaps Isurus desori. However, while I know C. hastalis can sometimes have cusplets, I'm not sure if that's true for I. desori. What do you think? Was my C. hastalis ID correct or would you label this one I. desori or something else? Whatever you think the correct ID is, if you could help point me to what you see as the defining characteristics, that would be great as well. Thank you!

    Isurus retroflexus

    Found between Plum Point and Parker’s Creek. It is an upper anterior. Isurus retroflexus may be conspecific with Isurus paucus. Not found in situ.
  13. Yesterday (January 2nd) was only my second trip to Calvert Cliffs. I'm pretty new to fossil collecting, but thanks to the wonderful advice and reading the greatly informative posts from members such as @Darktooth @FossilsAnonymous @WhodamanHD @racerzeke @KimTexan and @paxhunter I had a lot of success and it was a much more productive trip than my first. Below is a brief summary and some pictures of what I found: I woke up, put on a few layers clothing, and had my coffee at 3:45am. After my morning pipe (tobacco...I actually make briar tobacco pipes as a hobby) I got in my pre-loade
  14. Hi All! I'm camping in the Chesapeake area of Southern Maryland and am trying to plan out a little Calvert Cliffs trip. It seems like COVID has closed off almost all the access points to the Cliffs except for Matoaka and Calvert Cliffs State Park--a bummer, but I'm new to this so it will take very little to make me happy... Should I take my kayak? I've never been to either location but saw that the hike from parking to the beach area at the state park is 1.8 miles, so I'd hate to get the kayak all the way down there and find out I didn't need it after all. Any general advice would

    Mako tooth?

    I found this along the Calvert Cliffs (Miocene exposure) in Maryland. The root shape doesn't look right to me for Carcharodon hastalis, though I could be wrong on that. Is it perhaps an Isurus desori?

    Teeth/Bone ID

    Hello! Last time I was here I posted about 50 pieces of barnacle which I thought were teeth. Good news is, this time I actually have teeth! I sent these in to another fossil ID place, and they identified a few of my teeth as possible lemon shark, and the 8th from the left as a possible C. hastalis. If anyone can help identify more specifically what sharks the teeth came from I'd really appreciate it!! Also, the big brown fragment on the far right in these pictures they identified as some kind of bone fragment- maybe it's a long shot but do any of you know what it could have come fr

    Mammal Tooth from Calvert Cliffs

    I found the tooth below on a beach along the Calvert Cliffs (Miocene exposure) in Maryland this morning. Any idea what it came from? It looks like some kind of mammal tooth to me though it's missing the root. I'm not sure whether it's a fossil or modern. Thanks!

    Help with Paleocene tooth ID

    Found this on a recent trip to purse state park, tried to look online for similar teeth or bone and no luck. I’ve seen something similar before on the forum but for the life of my can’t remember where or what it was. Thanks!
  19. Spent the morning hunting. The water level was ridiculously high. A little friendly green snake was on the trail.

    Is this a ray barb fragment?

    Is this fossil from the Calvert Cliffs a ray barb fragment, or something else entirely? It measures 1/3 of an inch as far as it's size goes. Thanks for any suggestions regarding it's identity.

    What types of vertebrae are these?

    Here are two vertebrae that I've found at Calvert Cliffs sites (Miocene exposures) in Maryland in recent weeks. The first I also included in a recent trip report, but am posting it separately here along with some better pictures. Any idea what kind of animal this came from? My first thought was a cetacean/dolphin based on the oval part of the photo in the upper right (which looks sort of like the epiphysis attachment point--though that's probably not the correct term--on another but otherwise different looking cetacean/dolphin vert I found). However, I haven't yet found pictures of any similar

    Quick Calvert Cliffs Trip

    It's been awhile since I've posted...but the good news is that I've been able to make many trips to Calvert Cliffs since my last post. Yesterday was my most recent trip down. The predicted tide and swell forecast looked good and I had visions of megs dancing in my head during the 2.5 hour trip down. I arrived by 6am and after a nice nature walk I was beach-side by 6:30. The tide was high as it usually is during the summer, but it never really went down at low tide (~11:00). That being said, there was very little beach to search and not much being kicked up. However, it was great we

    Shark Teeth - Maryland

    Hi everyone, I'm buying some shark teeth from someone who hunted a bunch of them in Maryland - I would assume Calvert Cliffs. I'm looking for Isurus oxyrinchus - short-finned mako. Could anyone please confirm if 30 in this image is Isurus oxyrinchus? For reference, each square is 1.5" x 1.5". Also, is anyone able to identify 40? I would say Snaggletooth, but it doesn't appear to be serrated.

    Small teeth from Douglas.

    A few of the small shark teeth from today. Too many to take a pic of all. My favorite is the nurse.
