  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. This just looked bizarre compared to any other concretions with such smoothness and the perfectly scalloped out area. Could it be dino bone of some sort? ?

    Identification on bone

    Hey guys, new to the forums, i was doing some hunting at Big Brook, Nj and found a large bone im drawing blanks on.. can anyone help me out?!

    Interesting find in Southwest NJ

    So I have decided to do some exploration digs in my area (Salem County) just because there isn’t much mentioned for spots and it’s not more than 1 hour in any direction for me to search. Found an area with a little help from some other individuals and the ROCKD app that put me on the Vincentown formation and had a slight success. Mostly found coral but did come up with this. Possible spike or claw? It is roughly 1 and 1/2” long. Just trying to see what it could be as not much is found in my area as of late.
  6. 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?

  8. Hey everyone, I live in Morris County (NJ), and Fossil hunting is a hobby of mine that I hold dearly. I usually love going to big brook but only during the spring through fall. I want to go fossil hunting this winter, and am willing to drive a few hours but I was wondering if anyone knew any places where I can go fossil hunting in NJ or Eastern Pennsylvania that doesn't involve going through rivers or streams? I know I can gear up and go to Big Brook but I just want to be on the safe side. Plus, I think it would be really fun to find explore new areas! Anyways, I would love to hear

    Various Big Brook NJ Finds need help ID

    Hey found these all on separate trips.
  10. Hello, and thank you for your help and interest. I have collected from Big Brook in the past, but this time I was finding items of similar composition in the same general area of the stream bed. There had been recent heavy rainfall and the stream bed seemed layered differently. I have been tricked before, and could be getting tricked again, because after a while I trick myself into thinking everything is a fossil. After reading "When Dinosaurs Roamed New Jersey," I went back to Monmouth County with a renewed excitement. Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated if any of the
  11. From the album: Fossil Amber from Around the World

    A small 2.5g representation of a 41.1g lot of amber from the old Crossman Clay Pit locality. This amber is mostly unsearched, and a few specimens I have inspected contain some inclusions; preparation will be needed to identify these inclusions, however. Spectroscopic and chemical analyses indicate this amber was produced by distinct, related species within the Cupressaceae family. The material from this lot was collected in the early 1990's by the late Kevin Kropiki; he collected at this locality in association with representatives from the American Museum of Natural History: his significant c

  12. 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

    First Shark Teeth

    Found my first two shark teeth. The first one was sticking right out of the clay, staring right at me. The other I found raking through some gravel. Both are goblin sharks, I think.

    NJ Beach Shark Tooth ID

    Extremely stoked to have found this (extinct White?) shark tooth beachcombing NJ. Assume it either spilled out of Shark River Inlet or Raritan Bay area, or was pumped back inshore during beach replenishment from offshore sand lumps about 5 miles off. Any idea what species of shark?
  15. Hi all... I was sorting my finds from Big Brook, NJ, over the years and had a few whatzits. I'd much appreciate any insights you might be able to provide. The one in the middle looks similar (to me at least) to a hadrosaur tooth, but I don't like jumping to conclusions. The others... I couldn't even guess! Thanks for the look. (Scale in centimeters)
  16. Hello everyone! In the last month, I found two interesting Mosasaur teeth in two very different locations so I figured I'd share! For the first, I was digging in the basal Navasink in Southern New Jersey (primarily an invertebrate location). In the matrix, I happened to see a tiny bit of this tooth sticking out. As this is my only Mosasaur tooth in matrix, I prepped it so you can see the tooth better but left it in. The second is from my usual location - Big Brook. Nothing unusual there however; it does happen to be both my longest and widest Mosasaur tooth!

    Shell Surprise in NJ Cretaceous brook

    Found this little clam type full mold in NJ Cretaceous stream (not Big Brook). First time I've found a shell mold like this there. Reminds me of the Coquina clams in the undertow along the Jersey beaches in the summer. Any info on what it's nomenclature may be? Fun highlight of the day outside of the common shark teeth.

  20. Hello everyone! A few weeks ago, my friend Ralph (curator of the MAPS Museum) took me to an old fossil spot for really the sole purpose of showing me the stratigraphy of the area. I returned to the stream a few times and realized there was a lot of 'hard-pan' in the stream that contained fossils. After alerting Ralph, we returned back to the the stream and found something COMPLETELY unexpected..a small, workable area of Merchantville formation. Ecstatic with my luck, we hit the area with all the free time I had. All the best specimens were donated to the MAPS Museum (mo
  21. Hey everyone, So I am from Northern New Jersey and moved back about a year ago. I always loved going to Big Brook and Shark River but I am hoping to expand my horizons. My friends recently moved to Gloucester County, and like me, also have a background in Plio-Pleistocene Arch/Paleo...as such! we are all giant nerds who love to take day trips together and find neat stuff! I am not too familiar with Gloucester (except for the site being excavated by Rowan), but I was curious if anyone has gone fossil hunting in that county or in areas nearby. If not, I do have a backgro
  22. I haven’t posted in a while so I figured I should get involved again! We took a trip to New Jersey recently to see what we could find. Luck was on our side this time. It was the first time my son has gone hunting with me, it was incredibly special and memorable. Here’s our finds from our time, nothing crazy but a few nice finds!

    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.
