Fossils from Maryland (Miocene)

Next we drove to Brownies beach in Bayfront park on the Chesapeake Bay. There we found fossilized shark teeth, vertebra, and dental plates from the Miocene epoch.

Gray or Requiem shark tooth

Snaggletooth shark tooth

Ray dental plates

Staying on Chesapeake Bay, we headed to Matoaka cottages. We were hoping to get our hands on the elusive megalodon tooth, but it wasn't our lucky day. It was a disappointing hunt although there were a couple of new fossils we hadn't yet collected.
