  1. Help with ID from Big Brook NJ

    Thought this may have been something so I kept it for some time and now I need closure, Thank You!
  2. Hey everyone! Even though we are well into 2019 I thought I should share my top ten finds of the year. These will not be ranked as each one has their own value to me although some are rarer than others. Let me know if you want a better view of any of the fossils. 1. Bird Talon (Hawk or other raptor), Peace River, Florida.
  3. A friend of mine spotted this on the beach at Belmar, NJ yesterday February 2nd. This is kind of an unusual locale, adjacent to the jetty at Shark River Inlet where the Shark River meets the Atlantic. In the past my buddy and I have found small beachworn fossil shark teeth at this spot, so we thought for old time's sake we'd take a quick look again. We didn't find any teeth (there's much less fine gravel there now than in the past) but he did find this, which is way bigger than anything we've found here before. I have some guesses but I would like other eyes on this too in case I'm missing something obvious. Thanks in advance
  4. Hi! I hunt the creeks in and around NJ for fossils pretty frequently, but found one today that I've not previously seen and can't find any matching pics online for either. I found it in Ramanessin Creek in Holmdel, NJ. I was thinking maybe a fish jaw/mouth bone, but not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Kushmeja
  5. Hello! I found this last year in a Cretaceous site in Monmouth County, New Jersey last year and wanted to know what it came from. I could be way off on this one but I was thinking possible crocodile due to that 'divot'. It's probably very stream worn and measures a little over a 1/2-inch long. Thanks! -Frank
  6. Was going through a box of material from Holmdel, Monmouth County, New Jersey (Upper Cretaceous) and came across these two pieces that I can't identify. My best guess is that they are both concretions, but I wanted to ask the hive mind before I discard them. In full disclosure, I am offloading all of my Cretaceous material so if either of these is something significant, I will either be selling or donating them. Thanks Dave
  7. NJ Cretaceous? Pyrite

    Hi everyone, I know it is possible to find teeth with pyrite attached to them in the Jersey brooks (which yield mostly Cretaceous material). I have never seen just a chunk of pyrite come out of here before, however. The pyrite piece below is from a NJ stream - would you say it is in fact from one of the Cretaceous formations present here? It is about 1 inch. Thanks for any opinions!
  8. 1/2 coelacanth

    From the album Late Triassic Lockatong Formation

    Diplurus newarki. front and lower half of fish. Late Triassic, Newark Supergroup, Newark Basin, Lockatong Formation, North Bergen, New Jersey. Old Granton Quarry. Scale is in CM.

  9. Is this a fossil?

    Hi, I'm a new user so please excuse me if I don't have everything you need. I found this potential fossil in Northern NJ (Bergen County) and I was wondering if anyone knows if it is in fact a fossil. I have found many fossils (mostly of shells) over the years in the same area, but this is different from anything else I've seen. I would love to know if it is a fossil. If it is a fossil, I'd also love to know what it is and how old it may be. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! Jon
  10. Hello everyone, I have a couple questions about these two items. The first is a badly crumbling piece of fossil wood. I have not tried stabilizing it yet, but I have heard that wood with this type of preservation always crumbles. If anyone has had luck stabilizing this type of NJ wood please let me know. I am almost completely sure the second piece is just an oddly worn small section of ratfish tritor, but I want to make sure it isn’t something else. Thanks for any help, Joseph
  11. Big Brook Teeth

    I went to big brook, NJ back in September and have a couple of my finds that I wasn’t 100% sure on what they were. Any help is appreciated! #1 -
  12. Hello! I found this 1.5 inch tooth yesterday in Monmouth County New Jersey Cretaceous and was hoping for some help on it. Xiphactinus was my most likely suspect due to the two cutting edges but it seems way too thin, and does not show any 'fluting'. Also, by (what is left of) the base, it has that 'bony' look I am not used to seeing. I found the old thread below regarding a tooth that looks similar and a lot of commenters thought it was Protosphyraena so I was wondering if that's what this could be. I can tell you, it's definitely late Cretaceous. Thanks for all the ID help this year! -Frank

  15. Hello! These were all found in Monmouth County, New Jersey (Late Cretaceous). I have believed the first tooth to be Xiphactinus Vetus for years but am a little thrown off by the general texture of it and after searching images of Xiphactinus teeth, I can't find another that looks similar. I have found deteriorated Mosasaur teeth with a similar appearance so I was wondering if it could just be stream-worn. The tooth is about an 1.5 inches long, has two very defined cutting edges and a nice curve (which are all consistent with X. Vetus). The last thing I could add - it either has 'fluting' or is faceted but I'm not sure how to determine that. The second set of pictures is of different shark teeth from the same location. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
