just catching up

This time of year teeth slow down. Tides are higher. More people walk the beaches. This post is actually my last 3 trips.


Last Friday I went to the northern end of the Calvert formation. Nothing exciting except 2 nudists on the beach. There was a bunch of tiny treasures found. Hammerheads. Threshers, and a symphseal contortus. Also a beautiful cow shark.


The meg is 2 3/4 lower that was found siting in the sand about to be washed out. Just dumb luck. That was from last Sunday.



Location Calvert County, Maryland, USA

this i have a question about. The picture shows what appears to be a drum fish mouth plate. BUT this one is 1/2 inch thick and way bigger then any I've ever seen. It came out of zone 10.

The last one isn't drumfish. It is called Paralbula sp. It is another type of fish that has mouth plates.
