Potomac River Trip 4/18/08

  After leaving the Bay, I headed down to the Potomac River to continue my all-day hunt.  I didn't expect to see many other hunters, but there were about 6 other people already hunting the north shore.  Unfortunately, I didn't see any of them until I had already gone past the point, and it was too late to turn around.  I still did pretty good out there, though.  I found a few decent Otodus teeth and lots of shamers, a sweet Cretalamna, two nice croc teeth (one still has most of the root!), and tons of Sand Tigers.  I also got my first Potomac shark vert and three scutes, which I think two are turtle and one croc.  Also, I found some fossils that I have no idea what they are.  At the bottom left of photo 2 below is what I believe to be a Ratfish jaw fragment, and I have no clue what the two on the right side are.
