This post represents 5 trips to the bay. I managed to find 3 megs all of which were under 1 inch. But a meg is a meg.! A nice cow shark and some commons. The tides have been higher and the jellyfish are out in large numbers. Just wait until mid August/ September the bite flays will be out...I've been ran off the beach more times then I can count by those suckers.


   The metal object in the last 2 pictures was found near the mouth of the Patapsco river. Ive taken it to a few places and no one seems to know for sure. It looks like a button to me. The number 19 is present with a "v" over that. It appears to be made out of lead or pewter. Also I think at one time may of had a steel/ iron band around the outter rim that has since rusted away. If anyone has a guess I would love to hear it.

The upper parasymphyseal cowshark is just to the left of the shark vert in the upper part of the pic. I can tell by the condition of the teeth that you're exploring some of the other beaches. It's still nice to walk away with a few decent teeth though. I agree with you on those stinkin killer flies or whatever they are. They always dive bomb me on the path down to the beach!

Looks like a military button. V could stand for "Volunteers".
