  1. 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
  2. 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 .
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. Big Brook NJ quick afternoon trip today.

    Hello, any help with the attached would be great. I think I might have found fish poop, shark tooth, an an unknown item. The brook was high today so I could not get around to easy. I am hoping to go back later this week.
  13. Finds from Big Brook in NJ

    Hi, I just got back from Big Brook in NJ and I came back with some things I need people to identify. vertabrae There are three teeth in the same root. attachments.zip
  14. Is this a turtle?

    I found this today at big brook in nj. It looks like a turtle to me...any thoughts?
  15. Hi everyone, I just returned from a summer in northern New Jersey and had the chance to fossil hunt at the Ramanessin Brook site near Holmdel, New Jersey. We went on 7/28 after a series of heavy rainstorms, so we knew we would have an easy time at finding recently exposed material. We found the usual cretaceous shark teeth fossils, and then perching on the river rocks was this beautiful lower jawbone. I have included a photo of how it was found and the general site area. The jawbone itself does not appear fossilized with minerals and looks quite porous, while I am assuming the dentine in the teeth was well fossilized and has unique hues of blue, red, and brown that are difficult to capture in the photo. The size and specialization of the teeth remind me of a more modern mammal like a raccoon, but I am from Texas and unfamiliar with what is possible to find at this usually marine cretaceous locality. Is it possible that a more recent mammal's jawbone had fossilized and become uncovered in the same area? I am excited to see what you experts are thinking, and thank you in advance! I would be happy to take more photos if needed.
  16. Help I'D these from Big Brook, NJ

    I have some items that I cxant identify. Can anyone tell me what they might be?
  17. NJ Big Brook Fossil Bone ID

    Thought this was a very odd shape, bone something?
  18. We found this fossil this afternoon in Big Brook, NJ...trying to figure out what type of fossil bone it is (or hopefully is); any help is appreciated! Thanks!
  19. Crab fossil maybe?

    Hello! My brother and I have gone to Big Brook in NJ a couple a times, and stumbled on this. My brother is convinced it is a crab, while I am still on the fence about it. I've done some searching online and never found any records of a whole crab shell, so it'll be nice to get some identification. Thanks!
  20. Big Brook NJ Fossil Finds

    Hello! i am new to this forum and will use this opportunity to introduce myself. I am from. NYC and made my first visit to Big Brook in Monmouth County NJ because my two children (4&6) are very interested in ancient sharks and reptiles. We were so excited to learn how easy it is to find fossils locally. Could anyone assist us in identifying the tooth shown below next to the goblin shark tooth? I just realized I didn’t include a scale reference, but I know that the goblin shark tooth is slightly longer than 1”. I apologize if I haven’t followed certain board etiquette. Please let me know and I will be sure to adhere in the future. Thanks!
  21. Bone with Bite Mark?

    I'm looking for the collective experience of this group to help me determine if this is a bone fragment with a bit mark in it. Or is it just a rock. Here's several photos of the piece in question. Hopefully the quality is sufficient to make a determination.
  22. Brooks of NJ

    Been going to the brooks of NJ for over a year now so once I go through my phone I’ll post some more pics on top of my better finds from there. Today I was fortunate to meet @Trevor and do a little hunting with him. Thanks for showing me some new spots and techniques. Didn't have the best of days but went home with quite a few. Not quite sure what this is. I think it might be a part of a ghost shrimp but could be a concretion. Hopefully @Trevor will post his finds from today in here. All are more than welcome to share experiences and their trips in here also. Thanks for looking - Paul
  23. Hit the Big Brook area the other day. It was awfully hot but at least the brook offered some relief. Hardly found any shark teeth (I never do) but Belemnites were plentiful. Lot's of different bivalves as well. Sad to see that people were aggressively digging into the river bank when it's posted not to do so. Once the land owners bring up collapsing river banks due to fossil hunting I wouldn't be surprised if there were more restrictions implemented.
  24. I will be making a trip in early August to both the Big Brook area of NJ and from there driving to Penn Dixie. I love shark teeth as you might have guessed, and welcome any recommendations on spots. I am aware that many articles have been written about the area. I am also hoping for some good recommendations of spots between the two sites in order to break up the 7 hour drive. Any advice is welcome. Thanks! best, Matt
