    New Jersey Cretaceous Bone ID

    Hey everyone. I found this bone at a creek in New Jersey known for its Cretaceous fossils. It's very dense and heavy. I am having trouble finding an exact match to this bone and would love to hear your opinions on it. Thanks for your help!

    Possible hadrosaur tooth fragment

    Found this while sifting a Cretaceous marine sight in upper New Jersey. Resembles a partial hadrosaur tooth but I'm not 100% on that ID and curious if it's actually something more common that I'm not aware of. It's approx. 1.9 cm (3/4") in length.

    Strange bone

    Found this odd looking bone in Big Brook today. Any ideas? I did a burn test and it will not burn and doesn’t stick to my tongue size is 1.5” x 1.25” thanks.

  5. Not sure this is even bone, but found in NJ Cretaceous stream, I wet it down to show what even looks like little toothmark scrapes on it that are similar in angle and size in different sections, like something moving around taking bites. Any ideas if its bone? Mosasaur roots found in this area too, never found one but maybe this could be?

    Big Brook, NJ + new member

    Hello and thank you for letting me join your forum. My name is Lindsey and today my family went to Big Brook in NJ for the first time, looking for some shark teeth. We found some interesting things and we've got no idea where to even start with identifying the things we bought home. Can you please point me in the right direction? Thank you in advance for your help and I hope you're all having a great week. Lindsey.

    Big Brook teeth

    Found these teeth in Big Brook,NJ today. First one I’m sure is a mosasaur but I’ve no idea on the second one. Thanks.
  8. 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
  9. Hi, While out fossil hunting with my girlfriend in the Navesink Formation at Big Brook in Colts Neck, NJ, she found this small bone fragment while sifting. It measures about 2 7/8 inches (approx 73 mm) and weights 8.1 grams (but still may contain packed dirt on the inside). It is slightly thicker than a half inch in thickness while laying down. I have no idea what the bone belonged to, and I highly doubt anyone will be able to have much of a certain identification for this, but I promised I'd take a look and see what the Fossil Forum thinks. I can give more measurements and im

    Anyone else think this is part of a mosasaur tooth ? Size is 1 1/4” x 3/4”. Thanks.

    I found these these at Big Brook this Summer. The smaller, black tooth/claw(?) was found at the water's egde when I was picking through some gravel at the waterline. The other piece (bone or rock?) was just a couple of inches away. There is a groove in the larger piece that fits and holds the tooth/claw perfectly. Any ideas on an id? The tooth/claw is about 1 inch long, very flat, not the least bit conical. The larger black tooth/bone(?) was found on the same trip, on the same gravel bar, about 10-15 feet away. Thanks! KJ
  17. I've waited two years through this pandemic to go again and I'm PUMPED. Is Friday 8/20 or Saturday 8/21 the better day to go, from your experience? Specifically going there for vertebrate and amber fossil purchases. (Talking about https://nj.show/ if that helps)
  18. Hello all! I found a glacier transported fossil in unusually good condition in Southern New Jersey so I was wondering if anyone could get specific on it as to species and genus. Obviously, it was found severely out of its original formation so I'm not sure we can get any detail on this but I figured I'd try!
  19. Hello all! I recently rearranged my collection so I figured this would be a good time to show some fossils! I usually hang-out in the New Jersey Cretaceous but I have been collecting fossils for over 25 years and have found some pretty cool specimens of creatures from many different eras, That said, my collection is mainly focused on the New Jersey Cretaceous, so let's start there. These are my displays for New Jersey Cretaceous non-reptile fossils. My favorites aren't actually fossils at all but rather casts of some of my favorite finds. The crab, Costadrom

    No Cretaceous quick stop

    Been awhile since I posted,and been many weeks since the wife and I have fossil hunted in the Monmouth county streams due to being so busy at work,but Friday was able to get outta work real early and head up to the streams,just love getting out there and enjoying nature….nothing outta of the usual but a wonderful time with the wifey
  21. 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

    Various NJ Fossils need ID

    Hey so a few days ago I went to Big Brook and found a few dozen teeth along with some ray teeth, gastropods, and fish teeth, and these are my questionable specimens. IDs would be helpful! I'm thinking 1st is enchodus jaw, 3rd is some fish crusher tooth, 6th might be a fish jaw or bone material, 7th is possibly an enchodus jaw, 9th could be a scute or bone material, 11th looks like half a ray tooth. But I would like other people's opinions too on my finds. Thank you! Also I am pretty confident on this being a reptile bone but also want an opinion on it
  23. Found this bone chunk this weekend on a creek hunt in Monmouth County NJ, looks to be a piece if jaw with some partial teeth! I know bone can be very hard to ID but hoping some distinguishing marks and parts might help on this on. Hole on one end and 3 partial teeth, with one half full root exposed. Let me know what you think! I can take additional pics if needed. Happy Hunting!

    Large vertebra

    Found this large vertebra in Big Brook 7/24/21. Measures 1.5” x 1” x .5” In the last picture it’s next to vertebra I usually find for size compassion. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Newbie find

    Taking my son for a nature hike yesterday morning, trying to inspire a love for the outdoors onto him. We ID everything we find, but this is our first fossil! Found this deep in the woods in millstone, Monmouth county. Spoke to two paleontologists, one said pycnodonte and the other said Ostrea. Help! I don’t know anything about fossils.
