The Hunt for Shark Teeth

Once we found our first shark tooth,
we had the shark tooth hunting fever.
Typically we search an area on the Rappahanock River 
that the Brat Child calls Shark Tooth Island.
This summer, my mom learned of an area in Calvert County, MD
that is know for its shark teeth.
So, in a final summer hurrah,
we took a day trip to Flag Ponds Nature Park.
The beach with Calvert Cliffs in the distance
The weather wasn't the greatest.
It was overcast when we arrived,
and after we took a lunch break, the wind and rain moved in 
and we opted to head home.
But not before visiting the Visitor's Center.

They have quite a collection of teeth
and other fossils.
We managed to find 22 shark teeth Saturday
plus some stingray teeth
and some brain coral.
Tooth identification and photos to come!
