  1. NJ Cretaceous Specimens

    I need help identifying these three specimens found at Ramanessin Brook. 1. The cutting edge and root lead me to believe it's a mosasaur tooth. 0.5in long 2. A worn mosasaur or enchodus tooth fragment? 0.75in long 3. Bone. 1.25in long Thank you
  2. Ramanessin Brook find

    Small bead like item, not sure what it is. Thought it was a modern seed pod initially, but it's mineralized. It's completely hollow. Lines are quarter inch squares
  3. Ramanessin 2-18-17

    Took advantage of the mid-60's sunny forecast Saturday for a drive down to Ramanessin Brook in NJ. Nothing special, seemed to be mostly fragments and there were lots of footprints along the banks, but it was still enjoyable to be outside enjoying the winter reprieve. Tiny sawfish (Ischyrhiza mira) rostral tooth, front looks good, but back is busted up (scale = quarter inch squares) Tiny ammo fragment (front & back)
  4. Sure Looks Like Something To Me

    Hi, Found this in the Brook recently when the weather was cooperating. Saved it thinking it had characteristics of an ammonite fragment, but I'm not sure. Any suggestions? (Cretaceous of New Jersey - several views of same item). Thanks.
  5. NJ Cretaceous- Another Mystery Bone

    I have a feeling this is modern. Its heavy, but doesn't feel rock solid. In any case, anyone have any idea what it belongs to?
  6. NJ Cretaceous Mystery Bone

    Any ideas? It's rock solid.
  7. Ramanessin finds

    This is what I found on my last 2 trips to ramanessin brook in New Jersey. On each trip I came away with a good amount of teeth and other fossils. I found some nice size goblins, a couple big squaicorax, a croc scute and quite a few enchodus teeth and jaw pieces. My most interesting find out of the two trips is what I believe is half of a huge mosasaur root. It has a tiny bit of enamel where the crown would've been.
  8. Wood

    I'm thinking it's a branch in a tree. It doesn't seem fully mineralized, but I get the sense that it is a fossil.
  9. Tooth + Bone

    It's a small piece, but I'm thinking this could be a tooth socket from a jaw.
  10. Bone 2

    Fish rib ?
  11. Bone ?

    I'm a little dubious about this one, but still hopeful. Does this show enough bone like features to be called a dense bone, as seen in some marine animals ?
  12. Tooth 3

    I think this is a saw fish rostral tooth. Are B + C also the roots of larger specimens ?
  13. Something 3

    I think this is probably vuggy limestone. I collect samples of things like this anyway, and decided to include it as part of the tutorial.
  14. Tooth 2

    Stingray perhaps ? Other again
  15. Something 2

    Rolled up something. It's quite mineral whatever it is.
  16. Tooth

    Plesiosaur or Mosasaur perhaps ?
  17. Something ?

    Seems almost biological. Doesn't it ?
  18. Hey guys! I went to Ramanessin yesterday. It seemed like it was going to rain but to my luck, it did not. I found some teeth, a vert, and a cool shell imprint! Here are the pics: This is all the teeth I got on the trip. This is the vert and the shell imprint. Finally, is this squali patho? I'm talking about the hump on the root.. Anyway thanks!
  19. It was the day before Christmas and I felt the need for a change from usual precoccupation with Devonian inverts to go south to Jersey and sift the Ram for Cretaceous fossils. I "discovered" Monmouth County last year on a NYPS collecting trip to Big Brook which was one of my first collecting trips. Last March I found Ramanessin Brook which has since become my favorite Monmouth County collecting area. I've been there a half dozen times and while it's been many long hours of sifting the collection of Cretaceous fossils, especially shark teeth, has slowly grown. Temperatures had recently risen and with two days of rain and melting snow and I was hoping would have kicked up a few specimens. Traffic was flowing well and I made it there in record time; under two hours, arriving just before 9 AM. Temperature was in the high thirties. I came prepared, all of the usual warm weather gear including a rain suit and hip waders, and a thermos of hot tea. I arrived at one of my two favorite collecting spots. I immediately scanned the gravel bar and found part of a ghost shrimp claw and a couple small shark teeth. I commensed sifting the stream and the first hour turned up a lot of broken teeth I ended up throwing back and just one small crow shark tooth I ended up keeping. I began fretting this might be a long trip for nothing when I found the largest, most perfect goblin shark tooth, an inch and a half tall. After that it was one find after another; more goblins, three mackerals, and eight complete crow shark teeth, plus a couple ammonite sections, partial enchodus teeth, and a partial brachiopod. Then there was one large mystery tooth. Here's a photo of the collection: About the mystery tooth, it is the one in the lower right hand corner. It is three quarters of an inch long. I think it might be a crocodile or mosasaur or possibly a peudo fossil. TFF members please share your expertise. Also will likely send a phot to Jason Schein at the NJ State Museum who has helped ID my finds in the past. Sorry the photos aren't better. Staying warm is always an issue on these type trips. Can't use gloves and so keeping the hands warm is the toughest part. Had to give them a "rest" every now and then, put on gloves, drink some tea, etc. Ended up spending seven hours. The trip home though was the big adventure. Ran into an unexpected ice storm on the way and the last ten miles took over an hour and a half, but I'm home now, safe and able to enjoy a merry Christmas. Happy holidays to the rest of you!
