  1. Item 1 looks like a pretty large bivalve, but maybe it's just a rock with a cavity or seed pod? Item 2 seems like a fossil to me, and seems to have the right "look" of a fossilized bone. Item 3 was found in the same spot as 1 and 2, a fallen tree next to a creek in Southeastern Mercer County. Item 4 was found farther south in NJ, near the Delaware River in Burlington County. My 10-year old is convinced it's a fossil - the blue rock is very soft, the matrix seems to be reactive to vinegar. As a beginner with a youngster who is obsessed at the moment with finding fossils, I'd love to

    Big find at Big Brook Preserve

    I just took my friends out for a fossil trip their first time yesterday; where we could all get together and do something cool and introduce them to the fun pastime and interesting research I dabble in for my birthday. I should’ve known he’d have beginners luck but I was not expecting this find when he plucked it out from the water. They all had a blast and it was a beautiful day. Any and all input into trying to discern what creature it could’ve came from? The more the merrier! A couple other angles

    Monmouth Chub

    Found this chub tooth from NJ Miocene. Tooth is 1.25" on a straight vertical line from left lobe to tip (not along the diagonal). Took a lot of effort: 2.5 years to narrow down a location, and 6 hours of searching. Found it in the last half hr of the trip. Satisfying to have found, but a bigger tooth would have been nice for the effort required. That's just the luck of the hunt though. Hopefully there will be more to come. Thanks for viewing.
  4. Any thoughts appreciated. Can't find anything that looks like this found in Big Brook NJ. End seems too round to be in pincher? I know this is a stretch prob but the only thing I found remotely like it online was a pic of a baby Mosasaur jaw fragment. Thanks!!

    Is this a Deer tooth?

    I think I found one also in Big Brook Yesterday. seems very similar. What do you think?
  6. Hi all, not sure if anyone can help with this. A long time ago (like 35 plus years) I went on a fossil hunt. I was little but believe it was somewhere in New York. We went for a hike in palisades on the same day. We picked these oyster shells and were under the impression ever since that they’re fossilized. They are hard and heavy. I would value any input anyone may have about them. Thanks in advance.

    Shark teeth Id help

    Hi, looking for help with the id of these teeth that we found at either poricy or big brooks in New Jersey. Any help is most appreciated. (If I’m doing anything wrong with my posts, please let me know)
  8. Hi Folks, Ran into this little guy 10 mins into our trip to the brooks yesterday, never seen anything like it. I believe this is a Ghost Shrimp but I could use a second set of eyes on it. Additionally, I'm wondering how I should prep the little guy - I believe 95% of the fossil is an internal mold as the fragile black shell appears to be the top layer with much of it being worn away. As such I don't think I can reveal much more by chipping away at the rock. would love to hear some thoughts Pic: In Field Other views
  9. If I come across a rather large cache of various fossils in an undocumented area, do I need to report it? More context. They are all "parts and pieces". Scutes, teeth (no sharks), jaws, bones, fins, crushing teeth etc. They were in a branch of a stream that also held the first unearthed Hadrosaurus about a mile away. They were all on the surface within about 1/2 mile from one another. Most are pretty river worn but there are also a lot of keepers and even a few potentially museum-quality pieces. Should I report my findings or quietly open up a new web store- Thagomizers, etc.®

    Bone material from Big brook NJ

    Hey I found this in big brook. Not sure what it’s from or if it’s recent, but definitely bone. Kind of looks like turtle material but I’m not sure. Thanks!
  12. Can anyone help me identify the two sharks teeth I found this past year. Both were found in the beaches in Northern Ocean County in New Jersey. Thank you!

    Monmouth Chubutensis

    Hi all. I wanted to share this chub tooth I found towards the end of 2021. From Monmouth, NJ, I think Kirkwood formation. One of my targeted species for the year and was able to find one in about 20 hrs worth of searching.
  15. Hey everyone, I live in Morris County (NJ), and Fossil hunting is a hobby of mine that I hold dearly. I usually love going to big brook but only during the spring through fall. I want to go fossil hunting this winter, and am willing to drive a few hours but I was wondering if anyone knew any places where I can go fossil hunting in NJ or Eastern Pennsylvania that doesn't involve going through rivers or streams? I know I can gear up and go to Big Brook but I just want to be on the safe side. Plus, I think it would be really fun to find explore new areas! Anyways, I would love to hear

    Fossil IDs NJ Cretaceous Unknowns

    Hello Fossil Folks.. Wondering if there is enough here to make an identification. All items were found in NJ along the bays of the beautiful locale of Monmouth County. Most everything I pick up is very sea worn, however, a lot have similar form and are the of the same texture. Many remind me of little tree trunks, some are flat like the ends of a paddle with a little curve, and few are round like fingers. Other finds I can easily id, like fossil clams and coprolite, but these I’m curious to know what they might consist of, or what they may have originated from. Maybe they aren’t even fossi

    More Big Brook Finds

    Hey all here are some recent finds from Big Brook. #1. Croc fragment?
  19. Hi all... I was sorting my finds from Big Brook, NJ, over the years and had a few whatzits. I'd much appreciate any insights you might be able to provide. The one in the middle looks similar (to me at least) to a hadrosaur tooth, but I don't like jumping to conclusions. The others... I couldn't even guess! Thanks for the look. (Scale in centimeters)

    Conulariid?

    Hello, I found this rock in a creek in Hamilton, NJ. The bedrock in this area is mostly Cretaceous, but there are many glacial deposits. The part of the rock that looks like a fossil has a central line and smaller lines coming off of it, which made me think that it could be a conulariid that got there by a glacier (I'm probably wrong). Also, the side that has the fossil-like thing touches the adjacent side at almost a right angle. Can you please identify it? Thank you in advance!

    Lobster bisque

    Hello all, I found the following (possible) Hoploparia sp. tail, abdomen section, and partial claw/arm on a recent trip in NJ. I haven't seen too many of these posted so I thought I would share. I also included a video to show how much is exposed on each side. Thanks for viewing. VID_178761207_233632_277.mp4
  22. Hi all! We found these on 10/23/21 at Big Brook in Colts Neck, NJ. I appreciate your help figuring out what they are. Thanks!

    Small mammal tooth NJ

    Hi Everyone, Found this small tooth yesterday in a NJ stream that mostly exposes Eocene and Miocene, but also contains Pleistocene material. Its small but clearly fossilized. What do you think? Thanks, John

    Magnetic concretion?

    Hi Guys, I find a fair amount of these rocks/conceptions in one of the streams I hunt in. They are very dense and appear as if they are melted. I took some home and found they are magnetic. Any name for these? Thanks, John
  25. Hi. I am over the moon with this find. I usually find only find 10-20 teeth on the beach each summer. I have only found 3 teeth all summer on the beach. Mainly because I am spending more time with the kids than searching. But tonight was low tide…. Three steps into looking….. so excited it’s 1 inch and perfect!!!!!
