  1. Help Identify

    Found in Big Brook, NJ
  2. Bunch of Big Brook Finds

    I’ve got a few pieces I found in Big Brook that I was hoping to see if I can get a solid Id on. Thanks guys! first two pictures I was wondering if it’s an internal mould of something! second two picture I was thinking crab claw in matrix?
  3. Another ? from Big Brook

    When I first picked this up I thought it was a piece of shell.. cleaning it and examining it under magnification however has made me question what it is. Let’s play What The Heck!
  4. Big Brook Whatsits!

    So, as per my post in the Trips forum, i had a great time getting filthy in new jersey. These are the specimens i just dont know. Concretions? Bone frags? Teeth of something (salmon?) (one photo includes bivalves etc and i know those at least, its the other ? bits.. wild and crazy concretions at this site, good lord) Nothing easily identifiable to me, and i have a degree in this! Any thoughts appreciated
  5. Big Brook!

    I took a vacation to NYC (and in good time too, since everything is going to hell in a handbasket) and on one day i went to big brook! I wore a full set of waders and crawled up, around, over, and through Big Brook for about 6 hours. It was great! I will definitely go back! Man, that site has some of the most convincing concretions i have ever seen, and i have seen a LOT! I know what much of i found was, but some is a definite mystery.
  6. NJ Cretaceous Fossil Tree/Bone?

    Found this oddly marked piece in Big Brook sticking out of the marl. The striations and pockmarks on it had me intrigued. Looks like maybe a tree or piece of wood or something. It broke and inside it has a striated texture as well as kind of marly. Anyone think it could be something fossilized?
  7. Big Brook

    I was fortunate enough to follow up my Potomac River trip with a Big Brook trip yesterday. I had to see a client in the morning that is a couple of miles from Big Brook. So I decided to swing by and jump in the creek. For the first time this winter there was someone else hunting while I was there. I was fortunate enough to run into another TFF member (brad hinkelman) in the creek. Back to back days in different states running into different TFF members. What the chances... I guess pretty good. Anyway, enjoy the pictures. is this a drum fish tooth? If this is it is my first! not sure if the top two or bottom piece is anything.
  8. hi guys, here are few findings from my very first trips to big brook, nj. I have little knowledge about fossil but picked them up simply because I thought they are all tooth-shaped. It was great experience, a lot of fun, and I would appreciate if someone can help me to identufy the findings are fossil or normal stones. thanks!
  9. hi guys, here are the two bones I found from the big brook, NJ yesterday. There were found in the mud of the river bank (I did not dig but the mud was exposed for unkown reason). I know there are a lot of mordern bones in this river area. They look like fossilized bone due to the iron. can anyone help to indentify if they are fossilized bones or morden bones? thanks!
  10. Big Brook

    Hi. Took my bi-weekly trip to Big Brook this week. Had the whole place to myself again. It was not to cold. Enjoy the the pics. Any feedback is always greatly appreciated Mark Scapanorhynchus Texanus Squalicorax Kaupi top row- Archaeolamna kopingensis middle- Carcharias Samhammeri Bottom row- sawfish Ischyrhiza Mira Cretolamna Appendiculata I’m assuming modern bone because I’m not that lucky this pic is the bottom of the above picture bottom right. Not sure if it is anything Found a black m&m. Oh the humor. I don’t think everything below are concretions but just want to make sure before I toss it.
  11. Nj Cretaceous Fish Scale?

    Found a few of these over the years in Big Brook area, not exactly sure what they are? They are concave as well.
  12. Concretion or a good find?

    I was a big brook yesterday and brought a bunch of stuff home to dry out and see if they really are something or just concretions. Appreciate any feedback! Thanks #1
  13. Happy new year! I had a very relaxing and enjoyable 30 degree day in the creek yesterday. Tried out my my first pair chest waders yesterday and they where awesome. Anyway I feel like I had a decent haul. Last time I went out I almost threw out a hybodont fin spike. Thankfully I posted a picture before I did anything. It caused me though to think everything was something yesterday. There I’m going to make a separate post of some items I’m not sure of. Enjoy the pics. Any thoughts on I’d would be greatly appciated. Squalicotax kaupi Squalicorax pristodontus
  14. Cretaceous teeth

    Here are a few and what I think they may be. I'd love any confirmations or corrections. All from Big Brook. Thanks. Andy Scapanorhynchus texanus ??
  15. Big Brook nj find

    Hi. Big Brook find need an I'd please. Think the tooth is a sawfish, but I think I found a rib of some sort. Big Brook site, Monmouth NJ, December 23 2019. Should I sent this to NJSM?
  16. Another Trip to Big Brook

    Hi. Went to Big Brook again yesterday. It’s turning out to be a weekly addiction for me haha. It was in the 30s and sunny to start and then ended cloudy with snow. Fun times. Not sure what everyone else does to keep hands warm while sifting in freezing water. As a runner, I learned a trick to put latex gloves on as you first layer under whatever gloves you normally use. It works amazing. Keeps yours hands super warm. Hope this helps anyone in the forum. Goblin tooth without the root. (Thanks jersey devil) !
  17. Trip to Big Brook

    Hi. I thought it would be a good day yesterday to go to Big Brook yesterday. It rained for almost two straight days and the temperature jumped up to 55-60 degrees. I thoughts with all the rain and warmer temperature I would be able to get some good finds yesterday. Yesterday the temperature dropped into the 30's and it snowed. The water was the highest I have ever seen it because of the rain. I could not even get to my favorite spot because it was under water. I found a couple decent spots to look around. Here are my finding. A couple things I have no idea what they are and something I think I know what they are. If anyone can help with the ID's that would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  18. Hi. I went to go see a client yesterday and realized I was 20 minutes from Big Brook. So I decided to swing by for a hour or two. I went to the same spot that I found the plesiosaur tooth last week. I ended up getting nay staying a hour. 30 minutes into my quick trip I found this:
  19. Cretacous NJ Odd Shark Tooth

    Any idea what species of shark tooth is this? Found on a gravel bar in NJ Cretaceous stream. It stuck out to me as its unusual shape and white coloring popped out, especially with the serrated edge.
  20. Big Brook NJ Trip

    Hi. I went to Big Brook again on Friday for my weekly quick trip. We had a really bad rain storm mid week so the the water was the highest I have ever seen it and the creek floor was like quicksand because of the 8-10 inches of fresh sand and other snarge. Every time I took a step my foot would sink down. The first 2 hours was nothing special. More of a struggle getting around. But the last hour I found a very productive spot. I posted one of the finds in fossil I’d. A big thanks you to @The Jersey Devil for all is patients and help with ID. Enjoy the pics. Hope I ID everything correctly. Plesiosaur tooth. Super excited about this one!
  21. What kind of tooth (big brook)

    Hi. Found this at big brook yesterday. Thought it was just a piece of a shark tooth at first. Now that it dried out it’s not smooth or flat like a shark tooth. It’s more circular and rough. Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks
  22. Bone from Big Brook NJ

    Hi. Went to Big Brook again today. I will post everything in hunting trip later. But I wanted to post one of my findings. I think I found the rare chicken bone. Haha. Just want to make sure it’s not something better. Thanks for any feedback.
  23. 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.
  24. Big brook trip

    Hi. Thought I would share my two trip experience/finds to big brook. I live about an hour away so I get to go as much as I want during the week. I went last Thursday and this past Monday. Thursday was not good at all. I got a flat tire and ended up changing my tire in the BB parking lot. I had just enough time to find one shark tooth because it was getting dark. I went back this Monday to redeem myself. Here are my findings: i know top left is a vertebrae I thought I might of had something good but then the dried out and they all look like snarge row 1 is gobblin row 2-3 are crow I believe kaupi row 4 is mackerel but not sure which species row5 I have no clue haha row 6 sand tiger I believe this is a fish tooth or claw. Not sure Any corrections to my IDs would be much appreciated. Thank you! Also if anyone is interested in going to BB during the week it would be great to have company. I can be there from10-1 Monday through Friday. Just need about a week notice. PM if anyone is interested
  25. Had the chance to return to Big Brook, NJ with the family to search for cretaceous-era fossils. I am new to fossil hunting (this was my second time!) and had some interesting finds this trip - it is so much fun to learn about the prehistoric life in this area. It was a lovely day, although the brook was a little on the cold side. I would appreciate some help with identifying these 9 fossils: My best guesses are: 1) Mackerel/porbeagle shark (Cretolamna appendiculata) 2) Fish vertebra (is it possible to figure out the species?) 3) Unsure about this one, also Cretolamna? 4) Brachiopod (Choristothyris plicata) 5) Salmonoid (Enchodus petrosus) 6) Mackerel/porbeagle shark (Cretolamna appendiculata) 7) Goblin shark (Scapanorhynchus texanus?) 8) Sand tiger shark (Carcharias) 9) Crow shark (Squalicorax kaupi) Happy to provide more pictures if it would be helpful. Also, I found what looked like a bone (in the center of the below picture), but ended up throwing it back in the brook, believing it to be a concretion. Can anyone confirm that it's probably a concretion? Just want to make sure I didn't discard something like a Dryptosaurus phalanx in my search for shark teeth!
