one more month of tri-posts

I'm sitting on my bed right now as I write this post up...all I can hear and think about is that gusting wind outside. It is coming from the wrong direction but the weather is slowly changing guys. I CANT WAIT.

 

This post once again represents another 3 trips to the bay. The first one was to the cabins. There wasn't to much found except for about 10 small teeth. You can see them in the top right part of the main picture. There's only 6 pictured because the others were small and got mixed up in the bag.

 

(2) The usual assortment of teeth was collected. The pile teeth are photographed upside down also on the upper right portion of the main picture. I did find a small meg in decent shape way up on the sand. Other Honorable mentions are a ray back scute, a small shark vertebrate with 4 holes on the side of the vert....Take a look I've never seen anything like that. A couple small makos....Would you look at that otodus, or what looks like one in the 3rd picture. If I made you take a guess as to where it came from in MD you would probably say Purse.-Am I wrong? I wonder how it managed to make its way to the cliffs...

 

That's about all I have for today -tony

Great Mix! Yep, that's an Otodus alright. I have a couple from Calvert Cliffs. Somewhere (deep down out in the water?) there must be an Eocene layer that is exposed because for years I continue to find very dark or blackish colored Eocene species of shark teeth including; Auriculatis, Bramble, Otodus, Cretalamna, Sawfish, and an assortment of sandtigers. Too bad the coins you found weren't gold! Content Quality : 10 of 10

I've also found quite a few teeth there that are crhonologically confused. Mostly Striatolamia and other sand tiger-types, but a couple of Otodus too. I even pulled a Squalicorax tooth off of that beach. Content Quality : 10 of 10

Ditto's on the Squali Tom. I think I have two and my buddy John has at least one or two as well. They're all fairly worn though. Content Quality : 10 of 10

Are those kind of teeth called transitional ? Some how washed from the Eocene @ Potomac river to the Miocene in the bay ? Content Quality : 10 of 10
