    A few interesting finds

    Hello everyone, First time posting here so sorry if I mess this up or offend anyone for a newbie asking for some ID help. On a recent trip to some of our Northern New Jersey spots, I’ve come across two things I have never found before and one vertebrae that I was hoping someone could maybe point me in a direction towards. All from Holmdel area. Images 1 and 2 is possibly coprolite? Has small “shell like” crust to it in some spots. 3,4,5,6,7,8, and 9 is a small tooth in a piece of jaw bone or a claw piece possibly? Last four is the vert found. Roug

    Mosasaur or concretion?

    Hey all, went to Big Brook yesterday and found some teeth here and there. One thing that caught my eye was this. I was wondering if I could get a second opinion. My thoughts are it could either be a Mosasaur tooth or simply a concretion that resembles one. The reasons I think it may be are that it is hollow, has some lines running down and is the correct shape. That being said I know there are many rocks in the creek that resemble fossils that are simply rock, as well as I could just be seeing something because I want to see something. If I could get an expert opinion that would be great!
  3. From a quick hunt last week in one of my honey holes found 3 nice bigger Goblin shark teeth scanning the gravel beds. Also found a worked piece, not sure if it’s a point? Biggest coming in at 1.75" Found similar artifacts that were “drills” let me know what you think, if you can help ID! Thanks for the look!!
  4. Hey all, Noticed there was not much info on these here on the forum or online in general. All of these have been found washed in from the tide of New Jersey's Ocean City. From what I could find these belong to Sea Robins and are part of their skull. The larger and more complete one shows more in detail how this would have looked on the actual fish. If anyone has more information as to what potentially the age may be it would be much appreciated! From what I have read based on seashells, the black coloring is due to being trapped in the sand for high periods of time, I would assume the sam
  5. So I found my first tooth on the beach two days ago... I went back to the general area today after rain and tide went out and found a almost 2” Great White tooth! Thinking this was dredged sand that was pushed around with the past nor’easter! Never find teeth here! Can anyone put an age on it, found other small teeth as well...

    Mammal Tooth

    Interesting mammal tooth found scanning a Monmouth County NJ stream today. Can anyone help identify? Old or new? Cretaceous stream

    Monster Crab Claw?

    I found what I believe is pretty big piece of Crab claw or at least the biggest one I have or seen from NJ. Anyone else assist.. On top of this my find of the day was a monster Goblin tooth just shy of 2”
  8. This weekends quick trip yielded a possible 3rd arrow head from the area as well as my best fish teeth to date. Nice chunk of bone with 4 teeth intact!
  9. Found a nice tooth that need help to ID. It’s 1.49 long. Crazy colors for the teeth I find here Also found my first “nibbling” tooth of a Sclerodermind Fish Both found in a spot I haven’t hit in awhile!
  10. I have hunted the Shark River, NJ quite a few times and never really found the best quality of teeth or fossils. Very hard terrain to search...Yesterday we went out for 3 hours and had the best trip yet. We were surface scanning only, no sifting.. A few nice size SandTiger Teeth plus a few others not pictured

    Enchodus Tooth?

    Found what I believe is a Enchodus Fish tooth? Can anyone help identify or confirm. Has enamel and bone still attached. Was found in New Jersey, Cretaceous period.

    Big Brook NJ Haul

    My family and I made the trek to Big Brook in Monmouth County, NJ today, and we found some new-to-us stuff! The shark cartilage/skin (or maybe it is some sort of fish scales?) is pretty cool. The pycnodont teeth are pretty awesome, too!

    big Brook Find little Jaw?

    I was in Big Brook July 6 and found this little gem, not sure what I am looking at and would love some help. 00F61191-9B5D-4B31-9F9B-719578AC5009.heic

    Tooth, claw, or something else?

    I need help with an ID. I am very new to this hunting and could use any help. I got both of these from Big Brook in Colts Neck, New Jersey. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    bone or tooth fragment? Homdel NJ

    (photos taken under dissecting microscope, the distance between two blue lines is once cm.) Hi! my guess for this fossil is that it is a very small bone fragment (probably mammalian), but due to the prevalence of fish and reptile teeth in the stream where I was collecting, I also acknowledge the possibility that it is an oddly broken tooth (probably shark). Does anyone have an opinion on this striated fragment?

    Any idea what this is? hoof?

    Hi everyone, I was hoping someone could identify this or tell me if its something interesting. I was digging a bush out of my yard and hit it with a shovel, sounded much different than a rock so I washed it off. It was found in clay but this soil/ clay mix was brought in by a truck from somewhere after the house was built to level the backyard. I thought it was a very unusual piece to be found in the yard. Any ideas? Let me know if any other pictures would help. Thanks Chuck
  18. Here are some fossils I found while sifting and scavenging the Brooks of New Jersey. The fossils here are either found at Big Brook or Ramanessin Brook and from the Cretaceous period. This one found recently at Big Brook after hurricane Dorian.

    Bones found South New Jersey

    Hi all! I'm just curious is anyone has an idea what animal this is. It was found in my backyard which is wooded with oaks and pines. Location is South New Jersey. It's a pretty heavily wooded area. I'm thinking maybe a fox? I also found near the bones a black feather which may have come from a crow or vulture. Thanks everyone!

    A few NJ Cretaceous trips

    Here's a good assortment of my finds from 3 trips into the late Cretaceous of New Jersey earlier this spring. It's a mix of Wenonah and Navesink formation fossils from the late Campanian. The best finds were 2 pretty nice hadrosaur teeth for NJ but there's a good variety of material including a shamer broken plesiosaur tooth, small mosasaur tooth, a nice Ischyodus (ratfish) palatine mouth plate, a few sharks teeth (mostly Scapanorhynchus and Squalicorax) and more. There's even 2 small pieces of heteromorphic ammonite in there, Nostoceras hyatti and Didymoceras. Let me know if you'd lik
  22. Hey everyone! I teach a paleontology class and I'd like to lead a fossil collecting class trip to Ramanessin Brook in New Jersey. Since I'm bringing a group that's more than 15 students would I need to obtain a permit? I know this is the case for Big Brook. Thanks for your help!

    New Jersey Scute

    I have a request and hopefully TFF experts can pay it off...In my email today, I friend , who would like to be a fossil hunter, asked So , if I picked this up in the Peace River , Florida , I would say that this is a foot pad, and one odd looking fossil at that....Interested in whether any TFF members have been to Big Brook, NJ and saw anything that resembles this one. Thanks Jack

    New Jersey Vertebra

    Hey everyone, I found this vert today at ramanessin brook. This site has mostly cretaceous marine fossils but sometimes dinosaur material is found. This vert is very heavy and solid. I'm thinking it's plesiosaur but I'm not 100 percent sure. There is one large hole on the bottom of the vert. One cool thing about this specimen is that there is a bite mark that can be seen in the last picture. I'd love to hear what you all think this is. Thanks!
