    Calvert Cliffs Find

    Hello, I’m new to this forum but have enjoyed fossil collecting for quite some time. Just today my son and I went to Calvert Cliffs. While I didn’t do well with teeth, we found this which I was unable to identify. I was hoping someone might be able to give me an idea of what this might be. Thanks in advance for your time!
  2. Hi all, I'm hoping some of the resident experts here can help confirm or correct my IDs of the three fossil shark teeth and what I believe is a cetacean lumbar vert shown in the pictures below. I found these recently on a beach along the Calvert Cliffs in Maryland (Miocene exposure). Thanks for your help! For the shark teeth, I believe the the two on the left are both Carcharodon hastalis (though am more confident in my ID for #1) while the one on the right is possibly Isurus oxyrinchus though may also be Carcharias sp. All three have worn roots so I realize that may complicate the
  3. Hello again fossil gurus! I went to per state park again today and found over 80 shark teeth and shark tooth fragments! It was really great. I also found these three little bits which I thought were intriguing, particularly the middle one. Is it a bone fragment!? I apologize for the picture with my hand, but it was the one that seem to catch the texture inside the best. Any ideas on what the others are? They were all found near the waters edge. Thanks so much!

    Miocene Shark Teeth

    Found both of these teeth today while out on the Chesapeake Bay. Would’ve come from the Calvert formation. I’m believe the second tooth is a chunk of a small megalodon based on the serrations and root of it, first tooth I am not sure on. Both teeth are approximately 2 1/3 cm. Thank you!

    Potomac Paleocene Finds

    Hello, my son and I had a great time on the shores of the Potomac River in Maryland, USA yesterday. Found some nice shark teeth and also a few objects that may or not not be fossils. We’re hoping you could help. These two pieces were associated with the Paleocene Aquia formation 56-59 million years old. Here are 4 pictures of each of the two objects. #1 #2
  7. Hello there fossil experts! I'm a total newbie and just went on my first fossil hunt --a couple hours at Purse State Park. I found a bunch (like 60!) shark teeth, mostly tiny but i'm still thrilled. But i also found some things that look like fossil shells, and one thing that looks like fossil scales, that i was hoping you could help me ID. The first picture is what looked to me like fossil shells, but are they? are there fossil shells at purse state park? most of the online discussion of finds there seems to be of teeth, rays, and mouth plates and doesn't mention shells so i wasn't sure. They

    Mystery Vert, Calvert Cliffs

    Hi all, I found this strange vertebra today in a small creek that flows into the Chesapeake Bay. If it's a fossil, it is from the Calvert Formation. It's unlike anything I've seen before, and certainly not a cetacean vert, so that begs the question: what is it? I have not done the burn test on it yet to confirm it as a fossil, but can anyone identify it based on morphology? I believe it to be from a large terrestrial animal, but I'd like an expert/experienced opinion. Thank you in advance!

    Purse S.P tooth

    Hi all, I was wondering if this is an otodus obliquus tooth? TIA

    Is this an osteoderm?

    I found this at Matoaka Beach (Miocene exposure) in Maryland the other day. Does this look like an osteoderm, or something else? Thanks for your help!

    Are these coprolites?

    Hi all, I recently found the items below at Calvert Cliffs State Park (A-F) and Matoaka Beach (G-I) in Maryland (both Miocene exposures). Image scales are in inches. I'm not sure what these are. Could some or all of them be coprolites? If so, any ideas as to what kinds of animals they came from? Thanks for your help!

    Tooth id

    Can anyone I’d these teeth found at Purse State Park? Thank you!
  13. It's been a long while since I've posted on here. I haven't been able to collect much lately, but I recently went out to some new haunts and came back with some pretty intriguing stuff I'll hopefully get to follow up on later. I'll start off with an interesting discovery I've had recently. The outcrop exposes rocks stretching from the upper(?) Brallier Formation to the middle(?) Foreknobs Formation. Although I tried searching in the past for brittle star trace fossils, I was mostly unsuccessful in this regard, and over time my interest in it shifted to the much more fossiliferous

    Maryland Coprolite?

    Hi, new guy here. Sorry if this post is all wrong, but here goes. My Mom found this on a sandy beach on the Maryland side of the lower Potomac River. Is it a coprolite, a rock, or something else? Thanks.

    Tooth, maybe?

    I’m thinking this is modern. Anyone know what this is from? 5 mm across
  17. Hello everyone, I have just joined the forum in hopes of learning more about fossil hunting in MD. I am looking for any points related to the Frederick County formations. I had reviewed the geological maps and some info in the history of the site but would like to know if anyone could be generous enough to help a newbie find a good starting point so that I can get my children more involved. I have been to the typical Southern MD shark beaches and would like to try another region. Any help on the area near Emmittsburg or others in that area would be greatly appreciated.

    A day at the beach

    Hi everyone, sorry I haven't been on TFF for awhile. Recently in April I had a work related meeting down in National Harbor, MD. A short ride south on the shores of the Potomac I spent about 2 or 3 hours one weekday morning after a rainy night. Thought some of you might like to see the pictures.

    Megalodon next to rib

    My dad was digging up a rib bone, then I spotted a speck of black next to it, and we found this killer! It's about the same size as my first one, 3.5". And check out the size of this second rib bone (the pic with the spade blade) what could this be from???

    Creek Cookies

    Can anyone help me identify this "cookie"? We think it is a vertebra. It was found in southern Maryland in the Miocene clay formation.
  24. I found this along Calvert cliffs area north of Matoaka Cabins. I not sure what kind of bone it is or what it is from after trying to research.

    Douglas Point, small teeth

    Just decided to look at some of my small shark teeth (5 mm and less) from Douglas Point, since I can’t go hunting for awhile.
