    Help ID Big Brook and Ram Brook Finds

    Hi all, I ventured to NJ to visit Big Brook and Ramanessin Brook last weekend (Cretaceous, monmouth group). I found quite a lot of shark teeth I still have to sort through, but I could use help ID'ing some other fossil finds. Some comments on each 1. This looks a little like bone to me of some kind, but not sure. 2-5 look like plates or scutes. Not sure if turtle or croc. I realize 4 may be just a cool concretion, but I wanted to check. 6. This one is fascinating with a suture pattern of sorts that looks like it joins two pieces with the same finger like

    Monmouth Chub

    Found this chub tooth from NJ Miocene. Tooth is 1.25" on a straight vertical line from left lobe to tip (not along the diagonal). Took a lot of effort: 2.5 years to narrow down a location, and 6 hours of searching. Found it in the last half hr of the trip. Satisfying to have found, but a bigger tooth would have been nice for the effort required. That's just the luck of the hunt though. Hopefully there will be more to come. Thanks for viewing.
  3. Hello everyone, I was looking for possible confirmation on this find. It's am exogyra from Monmouth County New Jersey. I am not am expert on pearls so if someone can take a look a look and let me know if they are pearls or not, it would be greatly appreciated!
  4. Hello everyone! I was hoping for opinions on this fossil I found in Monmouth County New Jersey. Doing a search, I saw that it was similar to some Hadrosaur jaw sections but is very thin. What does everyone think? -Frank

    Monmouth Chubutensis

    Hi all. I wanted to share this chub tooth I found towards the end of 2021. From Monmouth, NJ, I think Kirkwood formation. One of my targeted species for the year and was able to find one in about 20 hrs worth of searching.
  7. Hello all! I was looking through my bone fragments from the Cretaceous of Monmouth County NJ and came across two that I figured deserved one more shot on identification.. By any chance, does anyone know of what these may have belonged to?

    More Big Brook Finds

    Hey all here are some recent finds from Big Brook. #1. Croc fragment?
  9. Hello everyone! I went to my favorite stream the other day in Monmouth County and had a really good dig so I wanted to show my finds! I found a really pathological shark tooth and a Mosasaur tooth on what was going to be my last sift, but my best find of the day was my artifact - a 3,000 - 8,000 year old serrated spear head! As you would think, after finding it, I contacted every artifact expert I knew for an opinion. The most common consensus is that it's a Meadowood (roughly 3,000 years old) but there are other opinions that it could be Archaic, so that's
  10. Hello everyone! You may have seen this tooth in my last trip report. When I posted this, I originally had it labeled as just Mosasaur (honestly, mostly because I know very well the 'can of worms' you are opening to try to get more specific on an isolated reptile tooth). Curiosity got the best of me and I ended up showing it to every contact (professional and local) that I have and at this point, I believe this tooth to be a Plioplatecarpine/Platycarpus (a deep-sea Mosasaur) which was the most common opinion. The characteristics that led me to this conclusion

    Needing help with this one

    This is something we’ve found before but weren’t sure if it was fossil or just an odd looking rock but having found another we’re pretty sure we’ve got something... but what ? This was found in a stream bed in Monmouth County NJ, not one of the popular spots (photographed in my home). I’d have to dig thru our finds to pull out the first we found but I believe it was a twin in size, shape, and texture. We’ve gone thru our books and the web hoping that by dumb luck to spot an image of one but no luck. Thinking this might be a cast fossil possibly. Can anyone say they’ve fou

    Hadrosaur Tooth? New Jersey

    Hello everyone! I found this yesterday in a Cretaceous stream in Monmouth County, New Jersey. It measures 3/4th of an inch long. I was thinking Hadrosaur but I've never seen one this thin so I figured I would look for some other opinions. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! Frank
  13. Hello everyone, For years I've been showing around three problematic teeth which I found in the New Jersey Cretaceous and we all have finally come to a consensus. We now believe these to be Apateodus palatine teeth. These teeth are heavily fluted (like Xiphactinus) and have a deep, hollow base. The bases flares out towards the bottom and ha a wrinkly appearance. Mine measure from .6 - .8 inches long. They do resemble the more common Enchodus teeth besides the differences stated above. I was NOT aware of these being in New Jersey so I just figured i would let
  14. Hello! I found this unusually well preserved 2.25 inch long bone at a Monmouth County New Jersey Cretaceous stream yesterday and was hoping someone could identify it. It has faint lines running vertically on it (most visible on pictures 2 and 3) which I believe I have seen on some Plesiosaur specimens but I can't seem to find the threads on the forum. It's also pretty flat, which I think rules out Mosasaur but again, I'm unsure If anyone could help identify this, it would make my weekend Thanks! @Trevor @Carl @non-remanié
  15. Hello all! I have two weird ones I found in Monmouh County New Jersey (Cretaceous). The crustacean is interesting to me because I was initially thinking Hoploparia gabbi however, it is over twice as wide as any other specimen I have found (comparison pictures below). It was suggested that another lobster, Linuparus, could be an option but we really weren't sure. This measures 2.5 inches The other one measures .75 inches and has one cutting edge and an oval base. What is holding me back from saying Xiphactinus is the fact that it isn't fluted and only has one cutting edg

    Fish or turtle NJ river fossils?

    Hi all, had these in the collection for a bit but need help with ID's. These come from Big Brook and guessing they are assorted fish bones and possible turtle bones.
  17. Hello all! I haven't done a trip report for a long time so I figured this would be a good time! I went to one for my favorite New Jersey Cretaceous streams on Friday and put in a few miles of walking. It was raining slightly but with hot it's been lately, that was actually appreciated! At the end of a mostly unproductive trip, I decided I was done and would turn around About a minute later, I saw something in the water and picked it up - it ended up being a nearly two-inch long, rooted Plesiosaur tooth!! I couldn't believe it; I've never found a Plesi tooth here this b

    Big Brook Finds!

    Hi all here are some finds I cannot identify from Big Brook. Please let me know what you think! Any help is appreciated. First up I believe is some kind of pleistocene horse tooth fragment? But I am not sure. Thought it was a ratfish jaw frag at first from the other side, but it's like nothing I've seen. Below, this is what looks to be a fish tooth of some kind, but it seems to have some of the root attached. So no hole visible at the bottom. Slightly larger than a quarter in length!
  19. Hello all! I found this yesterday in a Cretaceous stream in Monmouth County, New Jersey and as you can tell from my title - it has me pretty stumped! The 'folds' in it make me think tooth but I'm really not sure! It's pretty small, measuring less than half an inch long. Any ideas what it is?

    Coprolite faker?? New Jersey

    Hello! From the Cretaceous of Monmouth County New Jersey, I found what looks like a big, steaming...well, you know! The thing is though, it does not resemble any spiral coprilite I've ever seen so I'm wondering if it's from something else or just a faker! Thanks!

    New Jersey Cretaceous bone

    Hello! I recently found this in a Cretacous steam in Monmouth County NJ. I've found a good amount of Mosasaur bones in this area so I was wondering if this can possibly be identified or if it gets the dreaded 'chunkosaurus' label. Thanks everyone! Note: I'm not sold that its Mosasaur, but for some reason, in this area, I do find a lot of Mosasaur bones.

    New Jersey Cretaceous tooth (croc?)

    Hello, I found this little tooth yesterday in Monmouth County New Jersey. It has two really well defined cutting edges and is heavily faceted. It doesn't look anything like the other Xiphactinus teeth I've found so I was thinking croc (not Thoracosaur)? It really looks like an enchodus tooth but the root says differently. As always, all help is greatly appreciated!

    Hybodont?? New Jersey Cretaceous

    Hello! I originally thought this was a Hybodont shark tooth when I found it (size is perfect) but I just realized that no other Hybodont tooth is my collection is curved like this. Is this possibly from a different part of the mouth or did I completely mid-label this one.. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! @Carl

    Belemnite with bite mark?

    Hello! I found this belemnite in Monmouth County, New Jersey. I try to be careful with labeling 'predation marks' on fossils but knowing how these break, it's tough for me to picture this occurring after death or during the fossilization process. What do you think? As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
