  1. Found this stone among the stones in a decorative border around a relative's yard in NJ. Have no idea where these stones originated. Any thoughts would be helpful. Possible fossil is 3 inches long and 3/4 inch at its widest.
  2. NJ Cretaceous Brook Bone - Fish or Bird?

    Really not sure what to make of this type of bone? Any ideas?
  3. Please help identify some Big Brook finds!

    I took a trip to Big Brook in Monmouth County, NJ yesterday and found some things that I need help identifying. Any help would be appreciated! Pic #1: Possibly sea urchin spines?
  4. Is this a seed?

    At the risk of sounding silly, I can't figure out if this is a fossil or seed. I found it on the bottom of a stream in Monmouth County, NJ, along with some other things that I need to photograph in daylight before asking for opinions. It doesn't float, if that helps. Thank you for your help!
  5. Shark teeth from Big Brook, New Jersey

    Went on my first ever fossil hunt a few weeks ago in Big Brook, New Jersey. It was a wonderful time and a sunny day. I am new to fossil hunting, and hope to be back soon! In a few hours of searching, I found some belemnites as well as these two shark teeth, and would appreciate some help in identification. #1 is quite small (about 1cm in height), and #2 is a partial tooth: Shark tooth #1: From what I can find from the excellent NJ fossil websites, my best guess is either a sand tiger shark (Carcharias samhammeri) vs a small goblin shark (Scapanorhynchus texanus). I am not sure how to tell them apart? Shark tooth #2: I really like the color of this one. My best guess is a lateral goblin shark tooth? Big Brook NJ was a great spot for a novice fossil hunter to have a fun day. I did not venture far, and was unsure whether it was better to walk upstream toward the bridge or further downstream. Any tips would be appreciated!
  6. Is this a fossil?

    Hi! It's me again! This is another find from Big Brook in Monmouth County, NJ. It was recovered from the stream bed. I'm not sure it it's even a fossil, but it stuck out to me, especially because of the indentation. Thank you for your help!
  7. Is this some sort of salmonoid fang?

    Hi everyone! I found this fang-looking thing last year at Big Brook in Monmouth County, NJ. I recovered it from the stream bed. It has multiple rows of serrations running from bottom to top, and some indentations, too. I've attached pictures of it next to a ruler to show its size and multiple pictures of it from different angles. This picture of it pinched between my fingers shows the bottom on the "fang." Thank you in advance for any help you can give!
  8. Shark River Location

    I was looking into going to Shark River NJ and I was wondering at which part of Shark River cuts through formation as it is pretty long. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
  9. Hello Everyone. I am reaching out to the forum in hopes that someone here can give me some information about the Edelman fossil Park in New Jersey. Have any members ever been there? Is it worth visiting? How does one make arrangements for a visit there. I have visited the website but when I try to click on links it doesn't work for me. Any help would be highly appreciated. @frankh8147 @Trevor @The Jersey Devil @njfossilhunter @Carl
  10. Mosasaur or dinosaur vert?

    Hello! I'm leaning towards Mosasaur on this but that's mostly based on the fact that Mosasaur vertabra are a lot more common here than dinosaur. I found it in a Monmouth County, NJ Cretaceous deposit. The reason I'm posting this here is because the structure looked a little different than my other Mosasaur verts and upon further review, I noticed it had those bumpy patterns in the concave end that I don't see on my other Mosasaur verts. It's also pretty heavy but appears to be highly mineralized so that might or might not be a factor. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
  11. Strange NJ Cretaceous Fish Bone

    Hi everyone, I have this partial fish bone from the Late Campanian of New Jersey, 72 Ma. I have never seen this type of bone structure before, but for some reason it reminds me of some type of rostrum (billfish?). It is a little over an inch at greatest dimension. Any ideas are appreciated!
  12. 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!
  13. What could it be?????

    This is something pretty interesting and one I have never seen before while fossil hunting in Ramenessin Brook. I am perplexed as to if its a vertebrae but i am having doubts that it is. Wondering if anybody as an idea as to what this could be!!!
  14. Ammonite Suture/Piece from Big Brook

    Hello everyone, My girlfriend and I ventured over to Big Brook in New Jersey again this morning. After hours of digging I came up with this odd piece. I am under the belief that it may be a piece of an ammonite, but I am not 100 percent sure, as I know they are kind of hard to come by at Big Brook. If anyone could identify it, or just tell me its a weird rock it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! -Snag
  15. Beaver tooth or mammal claw NJ Cretaceous

    NJ Cretaceous streams, found a few of these over my time, just not sure what they are. Any advice? Sorry for crappy pics, if its an issue and a piece that's nto easily determinable I will take more exact close ups. Thanks all!
  16. Dino Bone NJ Cretaceous stream

    Any chance this is some sort of dino bone? Found in NJ Cretaceous stream. The strange color, shine and texture just struck my eye outside of the usual tricky rocks.
  17. This was found on the Jersey Shore - a beach on the western Atlantic. I unfortunately don't have a scale, but it measures 3 inches x 4 inches (7.6 cm x 10.2 cm). Any idea what it is?
