  1. Help identify fossil pattern

    Found this interesting fossil over the weekend, can’t identify the pattern on it. Any thoughts?
  2. Big Brook - Theropod tooth?

    Pretty new to this. Found this on my first look in the Big Brook in NJ. Based on the even spaced serrations and the cracked enamel look, could this be a worn theropod tooth? About the size of a quarter. Thanks!
  3. Identifying big brook find

    Need some help identifying this tooth I found a big brook, I THINK it might be a croc but not sure. Maybe plesiosaur??
  4. Big Brook Finds!

    Hi all here are some finds I cannot identify from Big Brook. Please let me know what you think! Any help is appreciated. First up I believe is some kind of pleistocene horse tooth fragment? But I am not sure. Thought it was a ratfish jaw frag at first from the other side, but it's like nothing I've seen. Below, this is what looks to be a fish tooth of some kind, but it seems to have some of the root attached. So no hole visible at the bottom. Slightly larger than a quarter in length!
  5. Identifying layers of sediment

    Need some help identifying layers of fossil sediment along a steep cliff side, having a hard time distinguishing time zones. Thank you!
  6. A paper from the Mosasaur journal described three bones from the foot of a large Tyranosauroid Dinosaur from the late Cretaceous Maastrichtian deposits of the Navesink Formation of Big Brook New Jersey, on the East Coast of North America. News report http://sciencythoughts.blogspot.com/2019/04/evidence-of-large-tyranosauroid.html Paper from the Mosasaur a journal of the Delaware Valley Paleontological Society 0_Tyrannosaurids.pdf
  7. NJ Cretaceous Stream Oddity

    I have no idea what this can be, possibly from turtle? Any suggestions?
  8. Whose Tooth Is This?

    My daughter found this at Big Brook today. It has enamel on it but it doesn't strike me as a shark tooth. Some slight serrations on the outter edge. Any help identifying would be greatly appreciated.
  9. Big Brook Deer / Antelope

    My daughter found this at Big Brook NJ today. Measures 3.5" in length. Looks like has socket for 2 other joints. Is this a modern white tail deer? The blackness has me thinking it may have some age to it.
  10. My daughter and I made it out to Big Brook today. A few fellow hunters out there but for the most part we had our area to ourselves. Water was still cold but new hip waders with thick socks were a nice addition to my kit. Found some of the typical items. Belemnites and Oysters (Agerostera mesenterica Morton & Exogyra costata Say). Also a few nice shark teeth and my first snail.
  11. Big Brook find....bone?

    This is a Big Brook, NJ find in Feb. 2019. I'm new and still trying to figure out fossil from non-fossil. I thought this looked like a piece of bone.
  12. Mo tooth or dino claw? NJ Cretaceous

    Laying thick in the mud after a torrential rain. I'm certainly not proficient but was thinking Mosasaur tooth with root? Any ideas?
  13. Big Brook Treats

    I wanted to post a couple pics from this weekend. I found a few teeth and things I am happy with. I could use a verification on the identities though. Thanks for looking!! Andy I think these 2 teeth are both Cretolamna Appendiculata. A very nice fish vertabra? And finally my favorite bivalve to find in the brook. I can't identify it for you though. It reminds me of the giant clam that tried to eat Batman and Robin back in the 60's.
  14. Fossils from Big Brook

    This is my first time here and I was hoping for some help identifying these fossils. My daughter and I found these in Big Brook, NJ in February 2019.
  15. My "almost a trophy"

    Just wanted to post a pic. I've been to Big Brook a handful of times over the past year and found some nice shark teeth and other trinkets. This Winter I found a really cool tooth I was very excited about...and then sad about...and then was happy again to have it...even though it was broken. I think it may be a pretty unique find and even though I go for the shark teeth, this one is my favorite find so far. I'm sure you guys will recognize it! Andy
  16. Hello ! I just pulled this strange looking item out from the big brook river in NJ the other day.. Its about a 1/2" in size and that's all the information I have on it. I know for a fact it's not a concretion like my last post! Thank you all for advancing this new comers knowledge & passion for fossils that has recently been ignited .
  17. Help with ID from Big Brook NJ

    Thought this may have been something so I kept it for some time and now I need closure, Thank You!
  18. Cretaceous crab pieces

    I believe these are parts from a crab I found in NJ, from what I see I think the large one is from the shoulder or bicep from a crab, is it possible to identify anything else about the animal?this side is fairly flat with the bottom edge protruding out.this side is round but in pretty bad condition.side view of the piece.
  19. Potential Crocodile Scute?

    I found this piece on my first ever trip to New Jersey and knew it was something, but was unable to identify it due to my inexperience at the time. 6 years have passed since then and I now recognize the pattern on the specimen to resemble a crocodile scute, if this is accurate I believe it would be my first crocodile specimen from the state. What do you think? It's about 2/3" long.
  20. Unknown trace fossil burrow

    Here is a fossil shell I found on a fairly recent trip to big Brook nj, towards the right there is a burrow that looks very straight and in the end of one some kind of dark conical figure is located, not sure what it is, any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  21. Went on a trip to Big Brook in August, finds weren't amazing only shells and belemnites and absolutely no teeth but we also found these two rocks that look highly unusual I want to see if these are fossil and if so what they could be.
  22. Hey all, Made it to Big Brook Preserve today with my daughter. Water level was a little higher than last visit and water starting to get cold. We found some decent teeth. Nothing large which is typical for this area but some nice specimens with great coloring along with partials. Toss in a few Belemnites and it was a good last trip to Big Brook for the year.
  23. What Is This?

    Hi, We pulled this from Big Brook today. No idea what it is and could use the expertise of this community to help ID. Thanks!
  24. Headed To Big Brook

    Headed out to Big Brook tomorrow. We have a few hot spots for belemnites and oysters but not so for shark teeth. When we explore this area we always head downstream of the bridge. Is it worth exploring upstream of the bridge? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  25. Big Brook mammal jaw with teeth in it

    I had a great day today sifting with my mom. We started at Ramanessin but the finds were far and few between so we switched to big brook. I found this in one of my last sifter fulls. It was sitting right on top after I sifted the sand out. I was wondering if this is most like Pleistocene or more modern and what kind of animal it might be. Thanks!
