Big Brook Monmouth County New Jersey Fossil Identification
phillies2740 posted a topic in Fossil IDHello, 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
Help ID bone from Ramanessin Brook in NJ
Biotalker posted a topic in Fossil IDI was at Ramanessin Brook yesterday 6/19/21 and met rather friendly and well informed Jeffrey P from fossil forum. Right after we parted I found this bone that reminds me of a mammal phalange of more recent times than the Cretaceous. Can anyone identify its previous owner and when they lived?
Fossil Hunting Trip 5/21/21
Bergenhoek posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHello everyone! Bergenhoek here! I'm new to the forum, and also to fossil hunting in general. I'm mostly interested in archaeology, but my friends, @Trevor and @The Jersey Devil have a lot more experience than me and they took me along on a trip with them. It was perfect weather too. Although it was in the low 70's, the shade and cool water made for excellent conditions for a casual day of hunting. It was the day after I graduated college, so it was nice to spend my first day as a free man searching the riverbeds for fossils. The goal of the trip for me was to escape my dorm room

New Jersey Cretaceous ID? Unknown Partial Tooth?
Kurufossils posted a topic in Fossil IDHi everyone, found this in a new jersey cretaceous creek. Looks like a partial enamel something but I'm not exactly sure what it can possibly be from, it interestingly has some very defined ridges on the least worn side. Very hard to catch the clearest pics to show the sharpest definition but I tried to get the best I could. Maybe this can be a clue to a potential id. Pictures of it with whiteish background are upside down.
Strangest New Jersey Crab Claw Cretaceous
Kurufossils posted a topic in Fossil IDOut of the countless New Jersey cretaceous crab claws I've seen and found this has to be one of the strangest claw partials yet. Seems to be an ornamented shell as apposed to the smooth claw textures that are typically found. Definitely a very interesting piece, anyone have any ideas on a possible species or if any ornamental crabs have found in nj cretaceous, or any other new jersey cretaceous hunters ever come across one similar? Definitely a head scratcher
Large NJ Cretaceous Bone
Kurufossils posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this thick bone piece in a new jersey cretaceous creek and wonder if its possible to maybe id since one side has a distinct rough texture while the other is flatter and striated, I would guess either large turtle, mosasaur, or dinosaur. My friend joked its a theropod maxilary skull fragment, but we all know around here that material seems close to impossible to come across haha. Interested to hear any other thoughts.
Mystery Cretaceous Tooth New Jersey NJ
Kurufossils posted a topic in Fossil IDHello everyone, found this mysterious tooth in a cretaceous stream in New Jersey. Haven't come across any similar or anything I can really compare it to, plus its kinda worn. Which doesn't help but the leaf-like shape alone is very interesting, hopefully this one can be figured out.
New Jersey Cretaceous Turtle Bone?
Kurufossils posted a topic in Fossil IDHello everyone, I found this bone while on a hunt in the cretaceous creeks of new jersey, very odd bone and definitely feels fossilized. My best guess is turtle but I am very unsure, I appreciate any feedback on this piece if it is Id'able thank you.
Fossil Classification Project
Trevor posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionHello Fellow Forum-Goers, Lately I have been somewhat inactive on the forum, and also have not had the opportunity to go fossil hunting in New Jersey since I am at college. But those things do not deter me though. I am here today to tell you about a project I have been doing with fossil classification, specifically classification of some fossil species from the Cretaceous of New Jersey. The goal is to be able to give my computer of a fossil and have it tell me with a certain degree of confidence the probability that it is any one of several New Jersey Cretaceous fossil species.
Large Interesting Bone New Jersey Cretaceous? Scute? Dinosaur? Turtle?
Kurufossils posted a topic in Fossil IDHello everyone, had a super quick trip to the cretaceous creeks of new jersey and found this particularly interesting large bone fragment, likely it is a chunk of miscellaneous bone material but it reminds me alot of a scute like ankylosaurus or some sort of other bone scute especially the edge, or from maybe something like a large turtle but I am entirely not sure if it's dinosaur, marine reptile, etc or if there is anyway to tell, looks super suspicious to me anyways so if anyone has any ideas I'd definitely love to hear them. (If more pictures are needed I will definitely be able to get som
Another NJ Brook Unknown
wetwilly posted a topic in Fossil IDHi, I was thinking this was an ammonite fragment or maybe a piece of H. Gabri (or am I way off - again). Then I saw some details that might help with an ID. Any suggestions? Thanks.
