If your into sharks teeth, take a good look around the beach. With all the rain we have had this spring, the cliffs are supposed to have given up alot of fossils and teeth. For more info on Calvert Cliffs State park check out the Maryland DNR website. Good luck to you and your friend. Let us know if its worth a trip down there.
