  1. Hi everyone, found this in a new jersey cretaceous creek. Looks like a partial enamel something but I'm not exactly sure what it can possibly be from, it interestingly has some very defined ridges on the least worn side. Very hard to catch the clearest pics to show the sharpest definition but I tried to get the best I could. Maybe this can be a clue to a potential id. Pictures of it with whiteish background are upside down.
  2. Hey everyone, this is kind of a 2 in 1 post, but I thought it was appropriate. Spring is coming, vaccines are being rolled out, and while we are nowhere near the finish line, I am feeling hopeful for Spring and last week (at least up here in North Jersey), the weather gave me a sense of renewal! Anyways, I haven't been to Big Brook in awhile (last fall?), primarily due to my work schedule but my first question involves how things are going over there? I know that the area remains to be popular, but I am not sure if there has been a surge in activity over the summer and

    Big Brook - ID Help

    I found this weird thing this past weekend while out fossil collecting in Big Brook. As many know, Big Brook has a lot of pseudofossils - rocks and other geologic material that look like fossils - so there is a very real possibility this is just nothing. However, it caught my eye and curiosity enough to think to bring it home to look at it closer under my digital microscope. It has an interesting pattern of tiny bumps. Any thoughts on what this could be are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  4. Tuesday this week (1/19/2021) I headed over to Big Brook Preserve after reading up on it on this forum and other sites. Made for a cold day in the water but ran across some other fossil hunters (both locals and out of staters like me.) I found a few neat teeth, mainly a few goblin shark teeth, as well as some crow shark teeth, and of course belemnites. Nothing spectacular compared to some posts but defiantly made my week! The locals were finding teeth up by the Boundary Rd. access (that is where I found mine) and I was finding tons of belemnites down by the Hillsdale Rd. entrance.

    unknown Ramanessin pieces

    Hi all, I made my first trip out to Ramanessin Brook (NJ cretaceous) today. I found several teeth, and a partial shark vert. I also found what is most likely a rock, but might have some impression in it, and a partial bone(?) with nubs and grooves. If anyone can help with either I appreciate it. I took an overall photo of each, and then close ups using a jeweler's loupe. If the closeup photos are not adequate enough I can try to take better photos. I have a decent mirror-less camera, but I don't have a macro lens for the closeups. The light piece is probably just a rock

    Big Brook, NJ

    Hi everyone! I found these at the Big Brook Preserve in Colts Neck, NJ in May of 2020. This was my first fossil hunt so I'm pretty sure I was at the wrong exact location but I was nearby. I found them directly in the creek and had to use a sifter. This was also after a rainstorm. I'm not sure if anything here is a fossil, but I figured I'd ask the experts! Please let me know if you want closer pictures or other angles of any of them. Thanks for taking a look! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
  7. Found this Fossil at Big Brook in New Jersey. It is a marine fossil site and I was wondering what this object is. It has the texture of a tooth or fossilized material. The object has a cone shape with a pointy tip at the end. On the inside, the object has lines and indents running down the side in 1 direction Images

    2020 best finds

    I was fortunate enough to find many nice teeth during 2020. These are some of either my nicest, favorite, or somewhat uncommon finds from my searching at Big Brook, NJ. These finds are late cretaceous (~65 million years old). Sources for identification: http://www.njfossils.net/cover.html Fossil Shark Teeth of the world, by Cocke The first picture are 4 of my largest and most complete goblin teeth (Scapanorhynchus texanus), all found on the same day! I think it had rained overnight, though there was no rain in the forecast. I think this along with unseasonabl
  9. Found this today out at the brooks, stumped on what it could be - never seen this kind of patterning on anything from the brooks before. Perhaps some sort of armor plate?

    NJ Triassic Fishing

    Last month my dad and I ventured to the site of the former Granton Quarry in hopes of adding some nice Late Triassic fossils to my collection. We only stayed for an hour and a half because there isn't much there anymore. Much of the fossiliferous layer has been carved out by collectors. One spot looked as if someone just scooped out all of the rock. We were quite fortunate to find a spot that had been missed or had only recently been exposed. We came close on two occasions to finding a complete Diplurus newarki, but no luck this time around. That will just have to wait until our next trip!
  11. I recently found this at Big Brook in NJ, USA. I am not sure what this is. The outer layer appears to have a spiral formation towards one end. It's just about 1 inch long (maybe a little less). Thanks for any help!
  12. Out of the countless New Jersey cretaceous crab claws I've seen and found this has to be one of the strangest claw partials yet. Seems to be an ornamented shell as apposed to the smooth claw textures that are typically found. Definitely a very interesting piece, anyone have any ideas on a possible species or if any ornamental crabs have found in nj cretaceous, or any other new jersey cretaceous hunters ever come across one similar? Definitely a head scratcher
  13. Dear NJ fossil collectors, Would anyone like to join me for a sifting hunt on Oct.3rd / 4th (Saturday / Sunday) at Ramanessin Brook? DM me for a time or date, I can probably go both days. @Familyroadtrip @The Jersey Devil @frankh8147 @hokietech96 @Jeffrey P @Darktooth @brad hinkelman @itsronni @Bob-ay @FossilizedJello @Carl @bucky @wetwilly @Neec @ColeFossilFinder @Masp @butchndad

    Large NJ Cretaceous Bone

    Found this thick bone piece in a new jersey cretaceous creek and wonder if its possible to maybe id since one side has a distinct rough texture while the other is flatter and striated, I would guess either large turtle, mosasaur, or dinosaur. My friend joked its a theropod maxilary skull fragment, but we all know around here that material seems close to impossible to come across haha. Interested to hear any other thoughts.

    Big Brook - Tooth

    I’ve had this little find for a few weeks now. It’s about 2cm long. Was thinking some kind of fish tooth, or possibly even plesiosaur. You can see the pronounced striations in the pics. Definitely river worn, though. Thanks in advance!

    Big Brook Vertebra

    Hey I found this while sifting and was not sure if it was a vert but i took it home and cleaned it up with a small electric engraver and dental pick and here it is. It looks like a vert but from what? biggest one I have found! Thanks!
  17. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone was going to the NJ gem, mineral, and fossil show... I’m considering going, but I wouldn’t be super interested if there aren’t many fossil dealers, I was also wondering if anyone knows how many dealers are going to be there. TIA!

    New Jersey Cretaceous Mystery

    Found this worn down piece in a new jersey cretaceous creek, while I think its a random worn bone piece it does have some very odd parts to it that are interesting, hoping to get some feedback on this one. Will post more pictures soon

    First Big Brook Trip

    Yesterday I took my boys down to Marlboro for our first trip to Big Brook Preserve. Overcast and humid seemed better to me then humid and full sun. We only came with a metal strainer and a few old spoons. I wasn't really sure how to start or what to look for but we had a great time...the boys splashing in the water more then looking for fossils! I found a few teeth, many concretions and I'm unsure of my other finds. I can't wait to go back! Would love any suggestions or possible id's on any of my finds!

    Tooth ID

    Found this in Big Brook. Appears to be a tooth of some kind. Closest I can find is maybe a Pleistocene horse tooth. It’s 3/4” and approximately 3/8” square. Thanks
