    Big Brook - Fossil Id

    Big Brook, no cutting edge, worn. Different then rocks or concretions in the area.
  4. I ventured to the NJ brooks last weekend and made it to both Big Brook and Ramanessin Brook (Cretaceous, mix of Navesink and Mt. Laurel formations I believe). I found a few goblin and crow shark teeth, but need some help with ID for a few other finds. Thanks in advance for any help! Here are some detailed images of each. #1: concretion, or tooth? #2, definitely looks like a vertebra, but for a fish or shark? #3 also looks like a vert, or is it another concretion? #4: I fou

    Big brook toe bone?

    Just dug from Big Brook. Think it's definitely a bone...but is it modern or fossil?
  8. Hi all! New member and very novice fossil enthusiast here. My family and I just got into fossil hunting this year and I wanted to ask for help identifying some of our finds. We've been exploring the formation in Big Brook New Jersey for a while now, and we've found plenty of shells, shark teeth, and belemnite that are easier to identify. We've also found our fair share of tricky concretions and other fake-out fossils in the brooks. I'm still learning what to look for and how to tell the difference between bone and rock, but I've made some good progress! Anyway, I wanted

    Big Brook NJ Possible Fossil ID

    Hi, I went looking for fossils at Big Brook park recently and found this. I'm unsure of what it is? To me it definitely looks like a fossil maybe a sawfish tooth but I'm unsure. It doesn't really match anything I've seen on any sites.
  10. Hi all, hoping I found something with these 3 pieces but thinking prob one or more are those tricky concretions I'm not too experienced with yet. Thanks for any help in advance!!!

    Rock or Fossil?

    I found the item pictured a couple of weeks ago in Big Brook in Colts Neck, NJ. I have seen photos of Pychodontid fish teeth online and am wondering if this could possibly be one, or if it is just a rock with a similar shape. Hoping an expert can let me know.

    Teeth Found in Big Brook, NJ

    I have found several teeth in Big Brook over the past few weeks and am hoping someone may be able to help identify them for me. I am very new at this.

    Plant or shell?

    I found the fossil below last week in Big Brook in Colts Neck, NJ. I know it is not terribly impressive, but I am curious to know exactly what it is. The imprint is VERY tiny. I assume it is of a shell, but could perhaps also be a fan shaped small plant? Can anyone tell me exactly what kind, or more about it?

    Big Brook Tooth and fossil ID

    Hi I recently went looking for foss il at Big Brook Park, New Jersey. I'm wondering what species the shark tooth is from and what the other tooth/fossil is from. I'm not entirely sure what it is?
  19. Found this mineralized bone at Big Brook Nj and on researching it, it looks very similar to photos of both Plesiosaur and Mosasaur vertebrae. About 1-3/4" long. Any help greatly appreciated!

    Big Brook, NJ - Bones

    Beyond the shark teeth I acquired these two bones from a recent trip looking for fossils in Big Brook, NJ. Not sure how to differentiate if this is recent or from the Late Cretaceous associated with the others fossils found in the brook.
  21. Hello everyone and thanks ahead of time for any help you can give me. I've researched this fossil I found in Big Brook NJ extensively and cannot find anything listed like it or close to anything I've seen anyone find. It's about 3/4" and completely cone shaped. Not flat on any side. The lines do not appear to spiral. Any help greatly appreciated!!
  22. I just started learning about fossils and fossil hunting. Both of these were found in Big Brook. I think the larger one might be a deer bone? I'm not sure if the smaller one is even a fossil. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  23. Hi Everyone! I'm new to the site. I have been fossil hunting for just over a year. I would love if you could help Identify these 3 pieces. I labeled them with numbers and letters to help keep track of them. Thanks in advance for your insight.

    Big Brook December 2020

    Hello all, The following photos are from my most recent trip to Big Brook, NJ. For anyone unfamiliar with Big Brook, it contains late cretaceous fossils (approximately 65 million years old). From my understanding in descriptions of formations, I recovered these from the Mt. Laurel formation. I have made better finds than this, but I wanted to share this due to its recency and the fact that I had found my favorite tooth (so far). The first Image is everything I've found, which includes mackerel (C. appendiculata), goblin, and crow shark teeth (S. pristodontus). I r
