    Bone find in New Jersey

    Hello. I found this bone on a New Jersey Beach. I found it 2 days after a recent hurricane came through. It was not burried in the sand. At first i thought it was a dried up scuba flipper but after i "knocked"on it it sounded i realized it wasnt rubber. I have no idea what it is it was recommended by a member to come here to share it with the members they would be able to identify it. Thank you for your time I wish you all luck.
  2. Found in NJ Cretaceous stream. Thought it may be a concretion at first, and it still may be, but upon closer inspection, it appears to have tooth marks in it which makes me think it is organic in some form. Any ideas? sorry no ruler scale here, will upload later. Approximately 6 inches in length, 2 to 3 inches wide.
  3. Hi all, I was looking over some finds from Sunset Beach when I reexamined this and thought it looked organic. Sticks to my tongue, feels relatively heavy. Is this a fossil bone? Sunset Beach is awesome and I definitely recommend the visit, especially before the shipwreck is fully lost to the sea. Fossils seem really rare there, but the colorful quartz and minerals polished by waves make up for it.

    What The Fossil?

    Found this in Big Brook, NJ (Late Cretaceous Navesink Fm.). It's about 2.5 cm wide. I don't even know what phylum to put it in. My first thought was bryozoan. There is one very thorough paper on Bryozoa of the Atlantic Coastal Plain, but it has nothing to fit the bill. Looks like sponge with those big holes. Found a picture of Discopora sp. that looks very close, but that genus is not listed in PBDB anywhere in North America. Gabb thought he had something similar from NJ, but it turned out to be a sand concretion. The last picture is the underside of the specimen, which may or may not be a thi

    NJ tooth fragments (?)

    Hi all This past weekend, we took a quick trip up to Big Brook, NJ and found these small, very worn fragments of what I suspect may be teeth of some kind I have a guess or two as to what they may be from looking around online, but I don't have much experience with anything besides shark teeth, so I was hoping for a bit of help clarifying Any ideas?
  6. 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

    Found in North New Jersey

    Understand this may just be a rock but nothing around in the creek bed matches what this looks like. Not sure if it’s some sort of shell concretion or what. Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts.
  8. These are some odd stream finds (fossils? / weird concretions?) from a spring 2022 trip the Ramanessin Brook in Holmdel, NJ. They were all recovered from the Cretaceous stream bed sediment. This is my first time uploading for ID help, so I apologize for any issues with photo quality or lack of scale (I still need to invest in a ruler). Thank you so much for any and all help! 1.

    NJ Cretaceous Fossil Tree/Bone?

    Found this oddly marked piece in Big Brook sticking out of the marl. The striations and pockmarks on it had me intrigued. Looks like maybe a tree or piece of wood or something. It broke and inside it has a striated texture as well as kind of marly. Anyone think it could be something fossilized?

    Tinton Falls, NJ ID help

    A few weeks ago, I decided to try collecting at the Tinton Falls Cretaceous (creek deposits) fossil site described on the old FossilSites.com list for New Jersey. I did not stay long and only found one thing that looked interesting. I am wondering if it could be a fossil. Thanks so much for any and all help! (Smooth Face) (Reverse) (View of Side and Reverse)

    Big Brook NJ Huge Lobster Claw or ???

    Sifting Big Brook today and this came up from a deep dig. It has the look of a Lobster claw or Shrimp claw, which are usually only half inch in length or so. This specimen is roughly 3 inches long and about 1-3/4 in diameter at thickest and 1-inch at thinnest point. Its actually pretty heavy. There's noticeable ridges on each side near the edge and looks like little nubs almost like on lobster claws. Cretaceous era fossils normally in the stream. What could it be?

    NJ Cretaceous Partial Vert ID?

    Found in NJ Cretaceous stream. Any suggestions? Looks like a partial vertebrae. Possibly Plesiosaur? Or even Dino?
  13. Hi Everyone, It has been a long time since I asked for help Identifying something. This is very intriguing and also very confusing for me to identify. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I found this a week ago in the Ramanessin Brook in NJ. Thanks!

    Enchodus tooth Big Brook, New Jersey
  15. 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!
  16. Hello! I had a great time at Ramanessin with the crew from DVPS. After everyone left, I went above the spillway and spent a couple hours sifting there. Eventually, I found this tooth! It's smaller and more intact than the mosasaur teeth I've seen online, but there are pretty clear enamel lines and cutting edges that cause me to lean away from IDing it as crocodilian. Would someone ID it for me please? Thank you!

    Possible NJ Plesiosaur tooth?

    Found in NJ Cretaceous stream. The striations stood out to me. Even though its small (about 3/4-inch) could it possibly be a plesiosaur tooth?
  18. Found in NJ Cretaceous stream. Looking at some sites, it looks like a piece a plesiosaur vertebrae, but maybe it's just a rock. Any ideas?

    NJ Mosasaur bone?

    Found this bone in NJ Cretaceous stream. Very dense. Any suggestions of its origin?
  20. So i made my long-awaited trip on Monday.. had to cut my day way short as it was 18 degrees with wind chill, then it started snowing. Glad I left when i did, i think i gave myself mild hypothermia, and it was squalling snow sideways by the time i hit the interstate! I got a few fun items though, and several definite maybes.

    Is this common?

    I was doing an initial cleaning of this piece to categorize, label and store for future preparation. I do this by brushing the loose dirt off with a natural bristled paint brush and then a quick cleaning with my dust collector to pick up some of the finer particles. This time, while using the dust collector, a little surprise popped out. My first thought was tube worm, well preserved and free enough for the suction to pull it out. Thankfully it didn’t detach! I was wondering if this is a common occurrence. Has anyone else experienced this? And do you agree that it’s most likely a t
  22. So, since the price of gas is skyrocketing, i have a quick trip to Big Brook planned for the end of the month. I will be driving down from New Hampshire, moaning at the cost of gas! I have been to BB three times now, this will be the fourth. I have only entered from two spots, both on the east side of the park- I am wondering where other people like to start? I have no idea how to GET to the brook from the internal parking lot! Are there better/different ways to get into the brook? I don’t want any Secret Collecting Spot info, I just like variety :) i also know there’s a site furt
  23. Recent finds from my new year day adventure. Found these two teeth within 2 feet of one another. One I am confident in saying is a Mosasaur but the tooth on the right I need some help with! If anyone can shed some light it would be appreciated! Thanks
