    Big Brook find

    Hello again, this time I found this fossil encased in rock or sediment in Big Brook. Unfortunately the rock is quite solid and I can't remove it. The fossil seems shell-like. Would appreciate a lot if someone could figure what it is. Also any ideas on how to remove the rock, would acid etching work?
  2. Any thoughts on what type of tooth?

    Found in Atlantic Highlands

    Found this off a bay side beach near Sandy Hook in Atlantic Highlands area of NJ. It appears to have fenestrate bryozoan on the piece. Any thoughts on the host? - not magnetic - sounds like stone when tapped - a piece broke off and it seems to be stone-like at the core - here is a short perspective video that also may help with additional viewing angles https://youtu.be/iwzvSiYMoWs
  4. Found at Sandy Hook in the Atlantic Highlands area on a bay side beach.. any thoughts? I haven't done the tongue test, but it does seem to 'stick' to a damp finger.

    Coral or Fossil?

    Found near Sandy Hook NJ. Last photos are under a microscope. Thoughts?
  6. Hello everyone! This is my very first post here and I really hope to get some help with identification. Over the course of the last couple of weeks, I have been finding these cylindrical fossils in a coastal area of NJ that was once covered in ocean. I don't have much information on the area but was told by one paleontologist that fossils from here typically come from 10 mya and marine mammal fossil finds are relatively common. He took a look at some of these photos and could not offer any possible identification or ideas. I have been able to find bits and pieces and glue them toge

    NJ Cretaceous Crab ID Help

    I went collecting today with @Jeffrey P and @frankh8147 in a nearby creek in New Jersey exposing the Late Campanian Wenonah Formation and I came across this concretion containing a crab carapace. Unfortunately the carapace lost its right side to weathering in the creek and the carapace was crunched and broken during fossilization. I checked Richard's The Cretaceous Fossils of New Jersey as well as a few others and I was unable to come up with a definitive identification. Does anyone recognize this crab genus? It seems so familiar to one I came across while collecting in Texas but I have not be
  8. Hi Everyone, We came across another mammal molar in our sifter this weekend. This one is pretty interesting looking and we’re looking for some more help on an ID. Thanks, John
  9. Hello everyone. I'm making my rounds across my different groups and forums, so if anyone has seen these photos before you'll have to suffer through them again. From June through the end of August I locked in on a concentrated area of sand tigers, makos, and my favorite mega-tooth shark: Otodus auriculatus. I didn't find one every trip out, but my most plentiful day gifted me 3, and my last trip out provided me with the largest tooth I have ever recovered from the garden state. I battled minuscule mosquitoes and a horsefly that was every bit horse as it was fly. Despite nature's bes
  10. Hi all— On our most recent trip up to the Monmouth Brooks, my husband and I found this small bone fragment in addition to the usual teeth and fossils we typically find there. We can't decide if it's a fossil or modern bone. I read about the burn test on here, and so we tried it. We didn't note any noticeable smell other than heat, but it did cause a small section of the outside to become brittle and flake away (pictured in the last photo). I'm leaning more toward modern bone for that reason, but I just wasn't sure. Any ideas or other methods to identify it
  11. Found this is ramanessin brook nj. I've been going since I was a kid and have never found anything like this. Any help IDing is very much apreciated.

    Mystery Oyster content

    So, I found a large complete Oyster at Poricy Park, NJ and was cleaning it as gentle as I could as it is very fragile but after a while of running warm water over it the two halves separated in it was nothing but hardened mud, silt or clay of some sort. But inside to one edge of the shell against the bottom half was something hard, not round but triangular in shape with about 1/2” sides. This was the only thing found within the two halves except for the very fine sediment. Opinions?? Thank you.
  13. 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.
  16. 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?
  18. 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)
  20. 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
  21. 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.®

    Sand tiger shark teeth ID confirmation

    Found these on the NJ beach this summer. Just looking for confirmation that I ID them correctly. Thank you in advance for any feedback.

    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!
  24. 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!
