My friends and I took a trip to Calvert Cliffs this past September, and boy did we go at the worst time! The weather couldn’t have been nicer, but even though the skies were clear, Hurricanes José and Maria tag-teamed the east coast causing coastal flooding. THE WHOLE WEEK. And the tides never went down for us.. Somehow we managed to find a few teeth – and a few cow shark teeth! I was pretty stoked about those, and the gorgeous scallop shells!
Day 1 – St. Leonard. Pretty pitiful!
Day 2 – Brownies Beach
Day 2 Brownies Beach – also pitiful!
Best from Brownies Day 2
A Chesapecten fossil scallop – They were weathering out of the cliffs! I found this one in the surf.
Chesapecten. This one had both valves attached!
A whole BED of Chesapecten!
Pretty tiger shark as found
Cow shark teeth – Uppers along the top row, and lowers along the bottom row
Two symphyseal Hemis! Lower on the left, Upper on the right (the serrated upper symphyseal hemis are reportedly uncommon)
Also a porpoise tooth
Ray plate and spines
My lone shark vertebra!
