  2. Possible amber from New Jersey

    Hello! I found this a while back around Big Brook Park in Monmouth County, New Jersey (not a place you would expect to find amber) and was wondering if that is what I have here. Also, I don't see any reason amber couldn't be here but have never found any in this location, so IF it is, could we looking at possible contamination or do you think it originated here. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
  3. Hello! I went to Monmouth County New Jersey (Big Brook area) today and found three things I need some help on. The first one is the object I believe has a chance to be Pleistocene. It measures a little over 6 inches long. In the second group of pictures, I think that bone is Cretaceous, any ideas on what it is? Per the fish jaw; all of the jaws I have found in the past were identified as Enchodus but I have heard about a different type of fish here (needle fish?) and was wondering if it could be that. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank @Carl @non-remanié
  4. Cretaceous crab pieces

    I believe these are parts from a crab I found in NJ, from what I see I think the large one is from the shoulder or bicep from a crab, is it possible to identify anything else about the animal?this side is fairly flat with the bottom edge protruding out.this side is round but in pretty bad condition.side view of the piece.
  5. I found this tiny, stream worn tooth a few months ago and was looking for opinions/information on it. I showed it to local paleontologists and was told it may be a theropod tooth but it's tough to be certain on a worn, isolated tooth. The tooth has faint serrations on both sides but they are much larger and are more visible on the distal side. The root section looks broken up but hopefully my pictures will give you an idea. It's tough to get good pictures of it due to it's size but here's my best effort. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
  6. Potential Crocodile Scute?

    I found this piece on my first ever trip to New Jersey and knew it was something, but was unable to identify it due to my inexperience at the time. 6 years have passed since then and I now recognize the pattern on the specimen to resemble a crocodile scute, if this is accurate I believe it would be my first crocodile specimen from the state. What do you think? It's about 2/3" long.
  7. Unknown trace fossil burrow

    Here is a fossil shell I found on a fairly recent trip to big Brook nj, towards the right there is a burrow that looks very straight and in the end of one some kind of dark conical figure is located, not sure what it is, any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  8. Went on a trip to Big Brook in August, finds weren't amazing only shells and belemnites and absolutely no teeth but we also found these two rocks that look highly unusual I want to see if these are fossil and if so what they could be.

  13. NJ Collecting

    Dear fellow forum goers, I am on fall break from college in Ohio and I decided that I needed to do some fossil hunting. In about a week's time I managed to get out four times. The first trip was to a KT Boundary site. For those who do not know what that is, it is a transitional period between the Cretaceous and Paleogene. There were very few fossils at the site and the collecting conditions were less than optimal but it was nonetheless fun exploring. Next I went to an Eocene/Miocene site and struggled to get any real traction with the finds. I came out okay considering that I didn't stay too long. The last two hunts were both at Cretaceous sites and this is where I found most of my finds. Of the two, the latter was on Friday October 26th and was with Frank (frankh8147) and Jeff (Jeffery P). Frank found a cool mosasaur vertebrae and Jeff found some rare species of ammonite whose name evades my mind. I thought the day was pretty nice and overall optimal for fossil collecting. Thank you for reading this and I hope you have a nice day wherever you are & have a productive next hunt. Kind regards, Trevor
  14. NJ Cretaceous & Mammal Teeth

    Hello everyone, this is Trevor. I have been meaning to post this for a long time and finally got around to doing it. I would appreciate help identifying these finds. Also, stay tuned I have a trip report coming out later this week, probably Friday. What type of ammonite is this? (middle)
  15. Hello all! I was going to wait for the study to come out but I figure since it is now on display at the New Jersey State Museum, I would post this now. This is my late Cretaceous lungfish from Monmouth County New Jersey. It was first looked at here, on this forum (thread below) and was later confirmed by and donated to the NJSM. There have only two late Cretaceous lungfish fossils found from Eastern America so coming up with guy was a dream come true! It's currently being displayed at the NJSM for their "A Decade of Collecting" exhibit. The study on these specimens should be out in a few months so more to come. @njfossilhunter @Trevor
  16. Unidentified shark tooth

    Hi I am a new member and hoping for some suggestions. I found this shark tooth at Sandy Hook beach in N.J. I have been searching online to try to id it with nothing conclusive. There are no serrations on the sides of the tooth however I am not sure if this is due to excessive tumbling in the ocean water. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  17. I found this in Monmouth County, New Jersey (USA) last week and was wondering if anyone knew what it was. When I first picked it up, I thought it was turtle shell but the bone structure doesn't compare well at all with the other turtle shell examples I've found. The top part is what I was focusing on because it doesn't look that was formed as a result of breaks and wear to me. I guess it could be older breaks and if that's the case, I'm pretty sure that I'm out of luck getting an ID on it but I figured I would give it a shot. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
  18. Found this 2 weeks ago in Ramanessin Creek in Holmdel, NJ. It looks like a vertebrae from a larger fish like a shark or large ray, but I'm confused by the mushroom like shape of the one side, so I'm not sure. It measures about 1.2" across and about 0.9" high. I though that maybe it was the last vertebrae before the brain stem or something like that, and therefore the mushroom end may be the side nearest the brain and have a different shape. Any help and / or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, John
  19. What is This? Find from Big Brook NJ

    Hi, I don't know if this is a concretion or possibly a bone. I found it in the mud and saw the cracks in it.
  20. Greeting! I found this Pycnodonte yesterday in Monmouth County NJ (Cretaceous) with this strange growth on it (the bump). I compared it to about two dozen of my other Pycnodontes' and did not see anything similar so I was wondering if this was their version of a pearl or if it something else. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
