Calvert Cliffs Find

Recommended Posts

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!

Welcome to the forum fellow Marylander! This is a piece of fossil bone (some prefer “Chunkosaurus”), likely from a cetacean (whale, dolphin, or porpoise). It doesn’t have many identifying features, but looks as though it may be part of a vertebra.

Thanks!  I appreciate your time and the explanation.  My son (and I) are excited to know this.  Thanks again!
