  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. 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!

  18. Dear Fellow Fossil Fanatics, I just had a great day at Big Brook, found some shark teeth but also 3 specimens that I am not sure at all what to make of. Any insights would be awesome! Best, Huttner
  19. New Jersey Cretaceous ID help

    Greetings! I found this today in a Cretaceous stream in Monmouth County, NJ. My best guess would be some type of enchinoid, but I'm really not sure so I'm wondering if anyone knew what it was. I believe it to be from the Wenonah Formation. As always, any help is greatly appreciated! -Frank

  22. NJ Cretaceous Unknown

    I found this in my early collecting days (late 90s, early 00s) in one of the typical Monmouth County Cretaceous stream. The texture doesn't at all say bone to me, but that notch has me wondering.
  23. Anyone going to the fossil expo in Edison, New Jersey at all this weekend? It’s going to be my first time going. I wanted to know if anyone could tell me what to expect there? I’m sure it’s going to be really cool.
  24. New Jersey Cretaceous skute/bone

    Hello, I recently found what looks like a piece of bone or skute and was wondering if anyone could identify it by the pattern. Unlike the crocodile and turtle skute I've found here, this appears to have little 'star' shapes rather then divots. Any help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
  25. New Jersey Cretaceous bone/vert ID

    Greetings! I found this in a Monmouth County, New Jersey (USA) Cretaceous deposit yesterday and haven't been able to identify it. The 'smooth' side is concave while other side is convex and appears to come to a point. If I had to guess, I would say it looks reptilian over fish but wanted to know if anyone had any thoughts. As always, any help is greatly appreciated; thanks! -Frank H
