2 Productive Trips to Ramanessin Brook, NJ
Nanor posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsMy past two trips to Ramanessin Brook in Holmdel, NJ have been especially productive. Resulting in much larger teeth and much more diverse finds, Ramanessin has proven to be a much better spot than Big Brook for me. Here are the finds from the first trip: Many large anterior goblin shark teeth; a very large crow shark tooth; some very nice mackerel shark teeth; two pycnodont teeth; coral; a large ghost shrimp claw; a large ammonite fragment; a scallop with both shells intact; what I believe to be a fragment of a very large sawfish tooth (though it does seem especially stri
Ramanessin/Big Brook (New Jersey) Fossil Help
Nanor posted a topic in Fossil IDI have been fossil hunting in the Monmouth County, NJ area for quite a few trips now, and I have accumulated a good amount of fossils I haven’t been able to ID. Here are some of them: Note: feel free to ask for more angles; I didn’t want to post too many images. 1 inch for scale Found in Ramanessin - no idea what it is Found in both brooks - 5 in middle look to be same species; I believe far-right is pycnodont or hadrodus Left - found in Ramanessin; think its coral Right - found in Big Brook; thought it was coral when I found it but I’m now leaning to
Possible Ratfish Spine from Big Brook?
Jeffrey P posted a topic in Fossil IDYesterday I was sifting in a Big Brook tributary (Marlboro, N.J.) when I spotted in my sifter what looked like very badly battered Enchodus fang. However, when I examined it more closely I spotted the serrations. Not Enchodus. I was originally thinking crab pincher. Crab claws are pretty rare. It certainly wasn't a ghost shrimp, or lobster. The other possibility, even less likely, some type of fish spine. Showed it to a friend who ID it as a rat fish spine: Ischyodus bifurcatus. Can anyone confirm this? I've never seen one before. Other fossils present confirm either Wenonah or Navesink Format
steviefossils posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHello all, I found the following (possible) Hoploparia sp. tail, abdomen section, and partial claw/arm on a recent trip in NJ. I haven't seen too many of these posted so I thought I would share. I also included a video to show how much is exposed on each side. Thanks for viewing. VID_178761207_233632_277.mp4
New Jersey Cretaceous: 10.04.20
Trevor posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsDear Fellow Forum Members, On this day, the 4th of October in the year 2020, @itsronni @Masp @Trevor and @Jeffrey P ventured to a frequented late cretaceous stream in New Jersey. I first met up with Jeff and did some sifting before later locating itsronni and Masp further downstream. Finds came somewhat slowly after we first stopped to sift but after some time we gradually found more fossils. We stayed in one area for the majority of the day up until Jeff had to leave. After some deliberation, the remaining members and I walked a quarter mile upstream and then left shortly afterwar

New Jersey Wenonah slabs (2016-2018)
frankh8147 posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHello everyone! At this point, it's been a long time since I've found any of these so I wanted to show my collection of Wenonah slabs or 'plates'. These slabs were found in the same area over the course of a few years and is a collaboration of a lot of fun trips with friends. The majority of them were found by me and my brother, Shane @shajzer64 in 2016 but a few others have dug with me in this (mostly unproductive) location looking for and finding these - thank you to everyone involved! The slabs are all the same thickness and preservation; I was actually able to put
Three weeks of fossil photographing and collecting, Hoploparia Gabbi
njfossilhunter posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsMy friend from Texas was back up in April for nearly three weeks to photograph some of the Ammonites in the M.A.P.S. collection for a book he is working on and for the days he wasn't shooting invert's we went out collecting and scouting for potential future sites. We managed to find some nice fossils and some are a bet rare to find in nice or nearly complete state. Here are a few of the best ones I found. The first one is a Hoploparia Gabbi.... Its a Cretaceous Lobster from the Wenonah a late Campanian formation. What makes this a rather rare fossil from New Jersey is that you mos
Scleractina corals from New Jersey
fossilsofnj posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsCretaceous Scleractina or Stoney Corals Something a little different from the New Jersey Cretaceous. The first 3 pictures are from the Woodbury Formation, exquisite preservation in original material. Photos 4 – 6 are well-preserved sideritic steinkerns, with mineral filling the gaps between the septae. (pers. Obs., Earl Manning) from the Wenonah Formation.

A Few Summer Trips To The Late Cretaceous Of Nj
non-remanié posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHere's some stuff I collected on 4 trips this summer to a site of mine in the late Campanian Wenonah formation of NJ. A few friends from the forum also were there for some of those digs. Perhaps they will share some of their finds as well.
