  1. Today I had the pleasure of meeting up with @frankh8147 once again, to hunt the Cretaceous streams of New Jersey. I arrived much earlier than expected after leaving my house by 1am. So I stopped at Dunkin Donuts and grabbed a breakfast sandwich. It was still dark when I got to the site. Frank said that he would probably get there between 7:30- 8:30 so I took my time organizing my gear. As soon as it was light enough I started heading down to the stream. I startled about 8 deer as I made my way to the trail. I really appreciate see wildlife early in the morning. This was my 3rd trip to this site. I had an idea of where I would hunt until Frank got there. So I headed upstream to where I felt would be a good start. I was surprised by how many trees had fell since my last visit. Once I got to the spot I soon got to work. When Frank first told me about this particular spot, he said that the finds were more scarce but they also tended to be more of the rarer finds. Today that proved to be true. I seemed to go through my sifter many times without a single fossil. Then every once in a while there would be something, either a sharktooth, crab claw, belemnite piece, or enchodus tooth. But nothing spectacular and most not in the best condition. I knew going in, that it being the end of summer, no rain and low water levels, there was no new material so this was not a surprise. I was hoping that when Frank got there he could find a more productive spot. After a bit Frank showed up. He told me about a couple of possible spots, not too far downstream. After awhile we tried a couple different spots and not finding too much (atleast for me, Frank had a couple nice finds, that hopefully he will share later) finally it happened, I found my first Mosasaur tooth! When I saw it in my sifter I thought it was too good to be true. I have been looking for one for 12 years. It is not big as it is only 12 mm but it is in rather nice condition. I didnt get excited till Frank confirmed ID. That is one of the things that I like about hunting with Frank. He is a good guy and he is very knowledgable. I really enjoyed hearing about the different things that he has found there over the years. We hunted till about 1pm and then it was time to head home. All in all it was a good time and I cant wait to get back. Here are some pics. 1st is the mosasaur.
  2. In order to obtain more information on NJ Fossil hunting laws, specifically sharks teeth, is there a contact either at the NJ State Museum or another organization that could be a definitive voice on the subject? I personally understand the laws in Colts Neck, Big Brook, etc, but need to get a grasp on all regulations in NJ. As well, if anyone has contacts for the Florida Museum or Floridian organization for similar inquiry, I would appreciate it. Thanks for any help.
  3. Big Brook NJ

    Other things I found today at Big Brook besides the bones I posted
  4. Bone ID

    Does anyone know what type of bone this?
  5. Bone or Wood

    Hi. Went to big brook today in nj. First time I ever picked up something that was not a sharks tooth. Found some good things but have no idea. Any thought would be awesome!! Mark
  6. On a whim I decided to stop by the Big Brook site in NJ to see what might have washed up after the rain yesterday...not a lot of shark teeth at all but plenty of weird mammal bits for some reason! I'm not good at all with figuring out mammal material so I figured I'd post some pictures to the forum and get people's thoughts. (Also I suppose it remains to be seen whether this is genuine Pleistocene material or stained, semi-recent bones...) These are smartphone pics (& Android at that) so excuse the quality. This first one is a tiny jaw of what I'm assuming is a rodent of some kind - the size is really throwing me off here. The same jaw is here on the bottom alongside a couple goblin sharks, plus an end of a random limb bone up top. Horse teeth? (The ends on both are broken, unfortunately - these are the most distinctive edges) (image size limit reached, more in next post)
  7. Bone? Tooth? or Nothing?

    Hi. Need some help with this one because I usually only collect shark teeth. I was at Big Brook in NJ and a came across this. I feel like it is something but I have no idea. Thank you in advance for any feedback.
  8. Fossil ID (Shark Tooth)

    I went to Big Brook in NJ last week found this tooth and I have no idea what kind it is; maybe a goblin. Sorry for my fingers. Couldn't get the picture to focus on paper. Thank you in advance for any feedback. Mark
  9. Fossil ID (Shark Tooth)

    I went to Big Brook in NJ last week found this tooth and I have no idea what kind it is. Sorry for my fingers. Couldn't get the picture to focus on paper. Thank you in advance for any feedback. Mark
  10. 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?
  11. 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!
  12. 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!
  13. 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!
  14. 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!
  15. Mosasaurus or Croc

    Found this yesterday while hunting with the family, in Big Brook. Can't tell if it's Croc, Mosasaurus, or something else. I forgot to include a ruler in the pictures, but the fragment is about 5 inches in length. Any help on how to safely remove the green sand stuck to it would be greatly appreciated.
  16. Found in Big Brook NJ - I belive it's a turtle shell fragment, but am not sure. Any help ID'ing is much apreciated. Thanks as always. Cheers

  20. 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
  21. Help identify tooth

    Need some help identifying this tooth I found the other day. I thought it was a horse at first but the molar pattern is a bit different and it doesn’t seem to be as wide as a horse. Any thoughts?
  22. 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!
  23. Possible mosasaur tooth??

    Found this perfectly split in half tooth that shows the root structure, the shape seems to be mosasaur but not sure. Any thoughts or ideas??
  24. Help identify fossil pattern

    Found this interesting fossil over the weekend, can’t identify the pattern on it. Any thoughts?
  25. 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!
