  1. Despite the heat I managed to get a solo trip down to the Ramanessin yesterday afternoon. I was hoping after the rains this past week things might be a little stirred up. On my last post I joked about the tiny super worn mosasaur tooth breaking the curse... and I am happy to report I was right. Little bit of everything this trip (small squares are 1/4 inch): Big mosasaur tooth, worn, but it made me very happy Pretty nice little lobster/shrimp Partial ratfish plate Coral/sponge? Crow shark t
  2. Hi everyone, I was wondering if you could help me out with something here. I found this piece of ammonite at Ramanessin Brook (whole piece is about 6cm across). I initially thought it was some sort of internal cast of a gastropod but when I noticed the suture patterns I realized it had to be the inner whorl of an ammonite. However, I'm perplexed by the texture of this piece. Parts of it displays an almost "scaly" pattern which I've never seen before. Any ideas what could have caused this? Thanks! Some closer images of the texture:
  3. I was at Ramanessin Brook yesterday 6/19/21 and met rather friendly and well informed Jeffrey P from fossil forum. Right after we parted I found this bone that reminds me of a mammal phalange of more recent times than the Cretaceous. Can anyone identify its previous owner and when they lived?
  4. Spent another afternoon on the Ramanessin yesterday. Walked in with a club from South Jersey who piled in at the big gravel bar with all the downed trees a little below the dam, including a relatively new addition of a tulip tree that is still covered in leaves. Later, I also met a member of a topographical survey team who was walking the stream bed and ran into a younger local who I have seen there several times previously. Overall a pretty busy day and much cloudier and cooler than last Saturday. (30 degree difference week over week) Unfortunately the trip was more of a heartbrea
  5. Hi everyone, I found this at Ramanessin Brook today. I thought it resembled the crocodile scutes that can be found here but I've never seen one in person and I know that concretions can do really tricky things so I'm not sure. Thoughts?
  6. Hey everyone, So I have been fossil hunting for years in NJ and as strange as it sounds, I have never actually been to Ramanessin Park! As such, I am planning to take a trip there soon to check it out. Now, I have gone over the forums and just overall checked online regarding good places to start out, legal areas to hunt, etc. but I haven't really found any recent information. i am very much used to Big Brook...but I am not going to assume that parking, the environment, and where to search are similar. With that being said, would anyone have any first time tips for hun
  7. I had a great day yesterday collecting at the Ramanessin Brook with @Jeffrey P and @frankh8147 and members of the DVPS. The weather was a bit overcast but the iffy weather certainly did not take away from the great accumulation of finds. From what I could tell everyone seemed to find something special, with the find of the day going to Frank. I started out finding a bunch of shark teeth and slowly transitioned to finding more fish teeth and other goodies from the brook. I seem to have a penchant for finding crustacean claws as this is the second trip in a row on which I have found a crustacean

    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
  9. I’ve had Big Brook and Ramanessin on my shark tooth hunting list for a while and finally made it up to both today. It’s a 6-hour roundtrip drive from where I live and with the days still pretty short this time of year, I had originally planned to spend my limited time just at Big Brook. After an hour-and-a-half of mostly striking out on shark teeth there, however, I decided to head over to Ramanessin, which both @Bob-ay and @PaleoNoel had recommended. Luckily, the two spots are only about 10 minutes apart, so I didn’t waste much time in transit, and I was rewarded with much better gravels at R
  10. I’m thinking about heading up to NJ tomorrow for my first Cretaceous hunt, and would love any advice from more experienced members, both generally and for this time of year (other than dressing for the cold of course). I was thinking Ramanessin as I’ve read here that it’s better for shark teeth, but I’m open to Big Brook as well if you think it’s better for a first trip. Along the Calvert Cliffs I mostly surface collect—is that also an effective strategy at Ramanessin and/or Big Brook, or is sifting likely to produce better results? Any advice on where to enter/park wou

    Ramanessin Brook ID

    Hello everybody, does anybody know what these fossils are? Found in ramanessin Brook NJ. I think they are teeth from fish. Possibly some are sawfish? One is a jaw fragment? Thank you to all that can help

    Ramanessin Brook Bone?

    Hello all, on a trip to Ramanessin brook as I write this. Came across something that looks suspiciously like a bone fragment. Mostly just looking for a confirmation if it is ir isnt, but if anyone wants to take a crack at ID that would be appreciated as well! I hate to be someone who posts up a concretion asking if it is a fossil, and I can normally tell the difference, but it looks a bit too bony! Haha! Thanks! -Snag
  13. I am planning my second trip to New Jersey in a couple of weeks. I want to return to Big Brook and/or hit up Ramanessin. Last time I went I had a spectacular time at Big Brook, and one of my fossils is still pending identification with the NJ museum Last time I parked at the Boundary Road lot and walked south to the riverbed, figuring less people probably went that way. Are there better sections to explore or better/different access points? Also pondering Ramanessin just for variety/the heck of it. Shown is the rough map of where I wandered last time.

    NJ shark tooth ID

    Hi, can anyone identify this shark tooth for me, I found it at Ramanessin brook the other day and I’ve looked on all the New Jersey fossil identification websites But can’t seem to find a good match. Tia.

    Help with fossils found 5/31/20

    I found a few things at Ramanessin creek in N.J. that I could use some help in identifying. It's a Cretaceous stream.
  16. I have been slacking in my posts the past couple of trips, so I figured I would catch up. First up are carboniferous plant fossils from McIntyre Mountain, PA:
  17. Some stuff I've found through the years at some New Jersey Cretaceous Brooks. You just never know what you'll find. That's what keeps me going there. And the peace and quiet. I hope you all enjoy a little eye candy. And I'd love any opinions and ID's since I still don't know what some of these fossils are. Just shout out about anything you find interesting.
  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.

    Teeth at Big Brook and Ramanessin NJ

    I found this tooth in Ramanessin Brook near Big Brook. The guy leading the group said it was a broken shark tooth but he was in a hurry and barely looked at it. I don’t think it looks like a shark tooth. The first picture shows the sharp edge on the front of the tooth.
  20. My wife and I spent a couple of hours wading in Ramanessin Brook in NJ yesterday afternoon sifting for shark teeth and anything else of interest. Nothing spectacular but it was surprisingly steady for a late season trip. It was surprising to me just how much the stream had changed since my last trip there. Many of the big trees across the water had been moved and the gravel beds shifted significantly.

    Ramanessin brook, NJ oddity

    Not sure if this is actually a fossil or modern. I suspect the latter. Its a 1/4 inch across and very flat

    Ramanessin Brook Finds

    Went fossiling in Ramanessin Brook (Howell, NJ) on 7/9/19. Various finds. Some have already been identified (such as crow shark, mosasaur tooth fragment, sawfish, turtle plastern, ammonite, etc.), but was wondering if anyone saw some additional finds that could be identified. Thank you!

    Small trip, small finds

    Got some small but very cool looking stuff from my last trip. Small stuff with small finds. I have an idea of some stuff but I'm not 100%. Thoughts? Front/back in photos.
  24. I have a question for you all pertaining to a Squalicorax kaupi tooth that I found while hunting with Frank at Ramanessin brook this past summer. I have hunted in thebrooks a fair number of times over the years and have collected a good amout of Squalis in that time. The tooth in question has a feature that I have not seen on any of the other teeth that I have found. Located on the mesial side of the root lobe there are serrations. I wouldn't really call this a cusp per se. I assume that this could be a feature that could very easily be worn off by the nature of being tumbled in the brooks. I
