Big Brook Fossil ID
Marco L posted a topic in Fossil IDHello again, I have two more specimens that I cannot ID. I suspect the long yellowish rod is a belemnite, but it looks odd. It has a hole on hole side, but no hole on the second side. The small tooth like object is small and is not hollow, could it be a Saber toothed salmon tooth? Thanks, Marco
Big Brook weird looking find
Marco L posted a topic in Fossil IDHi there, I recent went to Big Brook and found this small and odd looking object. It seems like a fossil, but I cannot identify it. Would appreciate it someone could tell me if it is indeed a fossil or not, and what it is.
Need help identifying a few tiny things- Big Brook NJ!
Jenelle posted a topic in Fossil IDHello! I'm pretty new to fossil hunting and I've been able to ID a few specimens but I'm having trouble with these. The ones here are from a couple trips to Big Brook in NJ. I tried my best to take good photos (when will smartphones come with a macro lens??). 1 looks like it could be a tooth or just a rock 2 seems to be porus (I did the tounge test) 3 looks like a jaw or just a rock 4 seems like it could maybe part of a turtle shell? 5 is definitely a vertebra, but I'm not sure from what 7 seem to be teeth or claws 8 is definitely a tooth but im not sure fro
Bone Fragment from Monmouth NJ — fossil or modern?
LoreHunter posted a topic in Fossil IDHi all— On our most recent trip up to the Monmouth Brooks, my husband and I found this small bone fragment in addition to the usual teeth and fossils we typically find there. We can't decide if it's a fossil or modern bone. I read about the burn test on here, and so we tried it. We didn't note any noticeable smell other than heat, but it did cause a small section of the outside to become brittle and flake away (pictured in the last photo). I'm leaning more toward modern bone for that reason, but I just wasn't sure. Any ideas or other methods to identify it
Late Eocene to middle Miocene fossils
Moses Oberlander posted a topic in Fossil IDSome miscellaneous fossils that I found today. The top left one I think is a drumfish plate with a tooth. No idea on others…
NJ Cretaceous: Suspected Fish/Reptile Material
Trevor posted a topic in Fossil IDHello everyone, I hope it going well for you! I recently ventured out into the Cretaceous of New Jersey and have come across a fossil that has me stumped. I went along with my friends Roy (not on forum) and @The Jersey Devil and the day was somewhat slow. Other than this interesting find, I think I may have found a partially hadrosaur tooth, but I need to take some better photos of it. The tooth is quite worn. I have included my other finds from the somewhat short trip. My guess for the fossil is fish spine. I hope you enjoy. @non-remanié THE MYSTERY FOSS

Several Hop Brook Specimens
SarahtheIchthyornis posted a topic in Fossil IDSeveral fossils found by my friends and I in Hop Brook we need help IDing, first, perhaps the tip of a crab claw? (graduations on the side are one mm each) the second, bog iron, or the relief of a worm burrow? the third.... uhhh.... I'm not sure, and I being the "expert" of the group, was given it for safe keeping
Carl posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this odd bone fragment on Asbury Park Beach in New Jersey last Saturday. The only thing that comes to mind is a fragment of mammoth skull, but that seems like a bit of wishful thinking. Any thoughts?
