  1. 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.
  2. Tooth + Bone

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

    Fish rib ?
  4. 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 ?
  5. Tooth 3

    I think this is a saw fish rostral tooth. Are B + C also the roots of larger specimens ?
  6. 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.
  7. Tooth 2

    Stingray perhaps ? Other again
  8. Something 2

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

    Plesiosaur or Mosasaur perhaps ?
  10. Something ?

    Seems almost biological. Doesn't it ?
  11. 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!
  12. 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!
