Wet Willy - Aquia 11/30/08 Follow Up

My camera is temporarily working...jeez. 

Location Potomac River, Maryland, USA

This was the one that looked great from eye level until I picked it up (ground shot from original report), but... ...oh well. Got a rush for a bit though :)
worn ray plate
Nice sand tiger teeth
I think this is Brachycarcharias lerichei
I think that this one is Odontaspis winkleri. Can anyone confirm? If so, it's my first one :)
I'm not sure if this is simply a chunk of fossil looking iron or a fossil. My first impression was that it might have been some sort of jaw fragment. The indentations look like where teeth might seat, but I don't know now. Anyone have any thoughts? I have a closer shot of the impressions.

I think you're right on all your ID's, and the chunk of something doesn't look like a fossil. Nice variety of stuff though! Did you see the tundra swans? It's cool to see them take off en mass. Their wings are so long and make such a cool sound when they take off. Content Quality : 10 of 10

I didn't see any swans that day, but there must have been a thousand hooded mergansers out there! Also, the bald eagles were fishing near us. I tried to get a pic but the rain messed up the pics. Watching wildlife is a side benefit of being in the field, for sure!

Nice pile o' teeth! Esp. the O. winkleri. Gotta like those cusplets. I miss collecting at Purse/Liverpool point. And you are certainly right, the wildlife are an added benefit. At the end of a collecting day, I ued to like to watch the eagles & ospreys.
