Stumped on the NJ sea rolled find
jerseygurl posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this during a low tide walk earlier this week on the bay. I usually find lots of fossil fragments, and sometimes if the sea chooses to be kind to me, I get to take home a top pocket find fossil. On this particular day I did find a complete gastropod mold in addition to this mystery. I’d be interested to hear thoughts on this. In I can’t find anything like it online or in any of my books.
Trevor posted a topic in Paleo Re-creationsDear Forum Members, I am interested in hearing whether or not anyone here has played around with interesting or exotic displays for their fossils, or in hearing if anyone has created fossil art from the usual materials (e.g. paints, pencils, etc...) or from digital tools (e.g. neural style transfer, digital drawing platforms, etc...). I have used a machine learning technique called neural style transfer to take the following artwork, extract its style, and apply it to an image of a fossil. I have also tried to do some stuff with TSP (Traveling Salespers
Fossil Hunting Trip 5/21/21
Bergenhoek posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHello everyone! Bergenhoek here! I'm new to the forum, and also to fossil hunting in general. I'm mostly interested in archaeology, but my friends, @Trevor and @The Jersey Devil have a lot more experience than me and they took me along on a trip with them. It was perfect weather too. Although it was in the low 70's, the shade and cool water made for excellent conditions for a casual day of hunting. It was the day after I graduated college, so it was nice to spend my first day as a free man searching the riverbeds for fossils. The goal of the trip for me was to escape my dorm room
Strangest New Jersey Crab Claw Cretaceous
Kurufossils posted a topic in Fossil IDOut 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
Large NJ Cretaceous Bone
Kurufossils posted a topic in Fossil IDFound 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.
Mystery Cretaceous Tooth New Jersey NJ
Kurufossils posted a topic in Fossil IDHello everyone, found this mysterious tooth in a cretaceous stream in New Jersey. Haven't come across any similar or anything I can really compare it to, plus its kinda worn. Which doesn't help but the leaf-like shape alone is very interesting, hopefully this one can be figured out.
Incense cone like teeth?
Wrktoomuch posted a topic in Fossil IDThese are some things that look like an insense. On every one, there is a sharp rib as a tooth would have. Any ideas?

Intense Squad Fossiling - NJ Cretaceous 12/23/18
Trevor posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsDear fellow fossil hunters, Joseph @The Jersey Devil and I went fossil hunting at an NJ Cretaceous stream on December 22nd and 23rd. On the 22nd I surface hunted, expecting a good wash out due to the previous night's rain. I had secured a section of the stream before realizing that someone had gotten to most of the stream before I had. Instead of continuing forward, I went back and explored some of the sections downstream that I had skipped. These too had been scanned so I ran back to my sifter that I had left upstream and then began sifting. Some hours later I was sifting and saw
Large Interesting Bone New Jersey Cretaceous? Scute? Dinosaur? Turtle?
Kurufossils posted a topic in Fossil IDHello everyone, had a super quick trip to the cretaceous creeks of new jersey and found this particularly interesting large bone fragment, likely it is a chunk of miscellaneous bone material but it reminds me alot of a scute like ankylosaurus or some sort of other bone scute especially the edge, or from maybe something like a large turtle but I am entirely not sure if it's dinosaur, marine reptile, etc or if there is anyway to tell, looks super suspicious to me anyways so if anyone has any ideas I'd definitely love to hear them. (If more pictures are needed I will definitely be able to get som
Nj Cretaceous Bone Or Ammonite Piece?
pinkus posted a topic in Fossil IDFound as lag in Ramanessin Brook. The color is similar to Cretaceous fossils from this locale but there are also modern and ice age finds here. Widest dimensions are 3.5 cm x 3 cm x 1 cm. Looks like bone to me due to the spongy nature of portions of it. If you think it's bone, any ideas on what part of the animal.
