  7. Dear fellow forum goers, Last Sunday I ventured out in the rain to hunt the Cretaceous streams of New Jersey. This hunt has been my first in over a month and I somewhat eager to get down to the brooks. After one is weened off of fossil hunting for awhile, one begins to have lower expectations for the few trips they do embark on. They have yet to be "crazed" again. My situation was no different and I did not expect to find much. Upon returning from the hunt I have become "crazed" once again and secured another trip for this weekend. I am looking forward to hunting with Darctooth (Dave) and Frank later this summer; hopefully we can do some hardcore sifting and find some killer mosasaur teeth. Concerning the artifact, I am not sure whether this is actually an artifact and would appreciate an ID. Kind regards, Trevor General Finds Ratfish Jaw Section
  8. New Jersey Cretaceous id help

    Hello! I found this weird fossil yesterday in the Big Brook area of Momouth County New Jersey (Cretaceous). I was thinking possible echinoid but haven't found any like this in the area. Anyone know what it is? As always, thanks in for advance for the help! -Frank
  9. New Jersey Hunt

    Summer is here, Yay! I haven't been as active on the forum lately as I usually am. Now that summer is in full swing there are many things to do that keep me away from fossils. It has been very hot and humid the past few weeks so I haven't done any hunts in awhile. But on tuesday I managed to sneak in a short hunt at Ramanessin brook with my family and met up with @frankh8147 on our way home from Ocean City. We arrived around 2pm and Frank met us at the school parking lot. After a short walk we got down to the stream and frank took us to a spot that he felt would be productive. While we sifted for goodies Frank shared his knowledge of the area with us. He also shared a few of his finds with Devin, who for some reason just couldn't find anything and lost interest quick. Granted nobody was finding a lot but Frank, Dylan, and myself were finding things here and there. Frank had to leave after a couple hours and we had to get back on the road shortly after. Our finds mainly consisted of squalicorax, mackeral and sandtiger teeth. But on my way out I mananged to dig up a portion of an ammonite whorl that I think is pretty cool. I had fun for the short time we were there. I wanted to say thank-you to frank for meeting up with us, sharing his knowledge and helping Devin out. It was highly appreciated! Hopefully someday I can return the gesture. Here are pics of our finds. Plus a pic of my shark souvenir from OC.
  10. My fossil fish teeth

    Fossil teeth I found. (Sorry about camera quality)
  11. NOT a chicken bone

    I found this in a creek bed in New jersey, an amateur fossil site (I don't remember the name, but you could apparently find megaladon teeth at the site.) It is 3.5 inches long, and is a lightweight, hollow fossil. It has two holes and an arch on the larger end of the fossilHere's some pictures (sorry about camera quality, I'm doing this on a kindle)
  12. Iron Hill Museum Fossil ID

    I recently took a trip to the Iron Hill Museum in Newark, Delaware. (Which has amazing displays by the way. Its small, but fascinating.) There, I bought a small bag of about 10 fossils. I knew what most of them were, but there are a few I am unsure of what they actually are. I was wondering if anyone on the Forum could help me. All I know is that all of the Fossils were found in either Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, or Pennsylvania. Unfortunately I will have to upload these each in separate posts as it won't let me upload more than 3.95 MB. (Yell at me all you want if you have found a way around it.) 1. This one I was told that this is some kind of bone fragment. 2. This is also another bone fragment. 3. I think this is a bone fragment. 4. I know this is a vertebra but I am not sure what kind. I am pretty sure it is marine. 5. This is some kind of tooth. 6. No idea.
  13. Possible Vertebrae

    Was just in the Ramanessin Brook today looking for shark teeth and stumbled upon this interesting fossil. I have never seen anything like this. Could it be a possible vertebrae from a marine mammal or late Cretaceous marine species?
  14. Hello, I have found a strange fossil-like head of a dinosaur (I hope!) but I am not going to hope, because this rock was found in the backyard of my house. I am not sure what it is, but if it is not a fossil, can someone kindly tell me what it is (including the name of the rock and how it got there) and explain why this is just a coincidence. Check Imgur link here: https://imgur.com/a/iAMEBMM for more pictures.
  15. Montague New Jersey Devonian

    I recently took a break from my usual Cretaceous streams and met up with another forum member in Montague NJ for some Devonian fossils. I had a really good time and came back with some nice fossils. First of all, the scenery is amazing - Montague is up in the mountains of Northern New Jersey and this spot was basically on a mountain. I saw deer and wild turkeys and also heard that there were bears in the area too. I found the usual trilobite parts but my favorite find of the day were the nautiloids (Weller has them as Orthoceras but I believe that species was reclassified - I could be wrong), which both came out of the same rock. I had no idea coming in that you could find these guys here! Overall, it was a great day at a nice nice spot!
  16. Found what looks like a coprolite attached to a piece of matrix. It was found in Willow Brook this AM. Willow Brook contains exposures of Upper Cretaceous formations. It is located in Monmouth County, New Jersey. Can anyone confirm whether this is a coprolite or not and if so what might have made it. I've included views of both sides. Thank you.
  17. Hello! I found this on the beach in Bay Head, NJ. Is this some kind of tooth? Any ideas what kind? I have additional photos if that would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
  18. This is my first time posting. My husband is a huge fossil enthusiast. Our two sons and I would like to surprise him by taking him on a fossil hunting excursion for Father's Day. We live in NYC, and are hoping to find someplace that's fun, that's within 2-3 hours of the city, and that also has the opportunity to hike or swim or do one other activity of some kind. Any suggestions? Thank you for any help or ideas you can share - we really appreciate it.
  19. Mosasaur or croc tooth - NJ Cretaceous

    Hello everyone! I hoping to get some clarification to help differentiate Cretaceous crocodile teeth from Mosasaur teeth. These two were found in the New Jersey Cretaceous. The first one is a shade under 1/2 an inch. It is conical and doesn't appear to have any cutting edges (but they could be worn off). I was leaning towards Mosasaur tooth on the second one because of the size of 8/10ths' of an inch, but it is slightly more slender than my other Mosasaur teeth, very conical and the root looked a bit different. It appears to have one very weak cutting edge but I'm not positive. It was pointed out to me that crocodile teeth roots tend to have concentric rings so I was wondering what everyone thought regarding these guys. Thanks! @Plax @josephstrizhak
  20. Batoid or Squatina Vertebra?

    Hey everyone, I would like your opinion on this interesting vertebra (from the NJ Late Cretaceous). I identified it a long time ago as a first cervical vertebra from either a ray or an angel shark. An expert looked at some pictures and thinks it is a batoid first cervical vertebra. Sorry about the picture quality, these are old photos. Thanks for any help!
  21. New Jersey Cretaceous bones with bites?

    Hello all! I wanted to ask the community for a little tutorial on Cretaceous bone with scavenge/predatory marks. These bones are all from Monmouth County New Jersey. I learned recently that a lot of scratch marks on bones are probably from crabs and I believe there were some carnivorous snails so I wanted see if there was anyway to tell if any of these pieces are definitely bite marks or not. Note- the third picture is the the back sides of the bones. As always, all help is greatly appreciated!
