    Mammal Jaw!!!!!!

    So guys basically my neighbor’s friend has big brook running through their backyard, and they found this recently. They are pretty young, and at first they told me they found a dinosaur jaw or bone or something. So I was real skeptical and expecting it to be a deer jaw. But they sent me a picture, and though not a dinosaur jaw, it’s not quite a deer jaw! It seems pretty big, has a few molars still intact, and has the shape of a bison jaw but I’m not sure. Please help me identify it! This is a picture of it in my neighbor’s friend’s hand so I don’t know the exact size but I will ask.
  2. Hi Everyone, New to the forum here but thought you guys might be able to help me ID some finds from today. Was out today for a few hours with my daughter and we found 2 items that I think might be Dino material but maybe not. I was thinking maybe a hadrosaurus tooth and a long shot on a worn dryptosaurus claw. The claw is interesting because it is definitely not coprolite as it’s rock and not sandy.

    Big Brook Fossil ID

    Hi everyone, I was at the Big Brook Preserve lately, and in amongst the usual batch of oysters, shark teeth, belemnites, and an ammonite fragment I found one piece which I can't quite identify. I initially thought it was a piece of Enchodus jaw, but when I got it into better light I wasn't so sure. It seems to have definite bone texture to it and I am almost certain it's fossilized, but it doesn't quite match with anything I can think of. (Sorry if the pictures aren't great, I tried the best I could with my desk lamp.) Thanks!

    Strange Big Brook NJ Bone? Coral?

    Hi again, hoping this time I have something. From Big Brook, NJ. I cannot find anything like it on extensive research. It's not modern bone. Sorry for the US quarter as I have temp misplaced my tape measure. The black smooth area on the top in the first pic is concave but not uniformly so. In one of the photos I put a pebble in there to try to show some depth it its not noticeable. Thanks again for any help!

    Big Brook NJ Tooth??

    Hi, found this at Big Brook NJ and trying to determine if it's possible a Mosasaur or Croc tooth or stone/other. It's about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2" long. Thanks for any info!
  6. Hey everyone, this is kind of a 2 in 1 post, but I thought it was appropriate. Spring is coming, vaccines are being rolled out, and while we are nowhere near the finish line, I am feeling hopeful for Spring and last week (at least up here in North Jersey), the weather gave me a sense of renewal! Anyways, I haven't been to Big Brook in awhile (last fall?), primarily due to my work schedule but my first question involves how things are going over there? I know that the area remains to be popular, but I am not sure if there has been a surge in activity over the summer and

    Vertebra from Big Brook

    ound this vertebra yesterday at Big Brook. Concave on both sides, but one side is smaller than the other, giving it the shape of a truncated cone. If you need other views or macros, please let me know. IMG_1867.MOV IMG_1867.MOV

    Big Brook - ID Help

    I found this weird thing this past weekend while out fossil collecting in Big Brook. As many know, Big Brook has a lot of pseudofossils - rocks and other geologic material that look like fossils - so there is a very real possibility this is just nothing. However, it caught my eye and curiosity enough to think to bring it home to look at it closer under my digital microscope. It has an interesting pattern of tiny bumps. Any thoughts on what this could be are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Big Brook Bone

    Hi everyone, I hope you're all having a good start to 2021. Tonight I'm sharing a fossil which has been in my possession for a number of years. I found it on my first trip to Big Brook in Monmouth County, New Jersey when I was only 11. Some veteran fossil hunters took a look at what I found and told me it was a dinosaur bone. Being a novice I took their word at face value, however after a number of years dinosaur hunting out west, I was able to see that this ID was incorrect. When I showed it to a paleontologist at my local university he did not think it was bone at all and perhaps some plant

    Big Brook, NJ

    Hi everyone! I found these at the Big Brook Preserve in Colts Neck, NJ in May of 2020. This was my first fossil hunt so I'm pretty sure I was at the wrong exact location but I was nearby. I found them directly in the creek and had to use a sifter. This was also after a rainstorm. I'm not sure if anything here is a fossil, but I figured I'd ask the experts! Please let me know if you want closer pictures or other angles of any of them. Thanks for taking a look! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
  11. Found this today out at the brooks, stumped on what it could be - never seen this kind of patterning on anything from the brooks before. Perhaps some sort of armor plate?
  12. I’ve had Big Brook and Ramanessin on my shark tooth hunting list for a while and finally made it up to both today. It’s a 6-hour roundtrip drive from where I live and with the days still pretty short this time of year, I had originally planned to spend my limited time just at Big Brook. After an hour-and-a-half of mostly striking out on shark teeth there, however, I decided to head over to Ramanessin, which both @Bob-ay and @PaleoNoel had recommended. Luckily, the two spots are only about 10 minutes apart, so I didn’t waste much time in transit, and I was rewarded with much better gravels at R
  13. I’m thinking about heading up to NJ tomorrow for my first Cretaceous hunt, and would love any advice from more experienced members, both generally and for this time of year (other than dressing for the cold of course). I was thinking Ramanessin as I’ve read here that it’s better for shark teeth, but I’m open to Big Brook as well if you think it’s better for a first trip. Along the Calvert Cliffs I mostly surface collect—is that also an effective strategy at Ramanessin and/or Big Brook, or is sifting likely to produce better results? Any advice on where to enter/park wou

    Enchodus Petrosus confirmation

    Beautiful day (60 degrees) but the brook was still too cold for my feet. I think I found my best Enchodus Petrosus tooth and jaw by far 1.75 inches by 1.4 inches. 2 carinae. Hoping for confirmation from you folks. Thank you
  15. I recently found this at Big Brook in NJ, USA. I am not sure what this is. The outer layer appears to have a spiral formation towards one end. It's just about 1 inch long (maybe a little less). Thanks for any help!
  16. My 29th trip to Big Brook may well have been my best yet. Instead of my two usual entry points I entered by an unnamed tributary I found on a map. It was small and narrow and overgrown and clearly not the “road” most traveled. Probably the least shark teeth I’ve ever found: photo of 5 below. Picked up several broken bottle bottoms with writing which I get a kick out of including an unbroken Vicks Vaporub! I found a bunch of bone most of which I probably deer but the dark wide one is likely not. Below is a photo of what I think is the first bear footprint I’ve ever seen there. Probably wron

    Enchodus jaw/teeth? And crab claw?

    My 29th trip to Big Brook and I decided to try to get there by an unnamed tributary I found on a map. Got to explore an area with little evidence of usage as shown by the paucity of glass and plastic. Overgrown and thorny and I think I saw my first bear footprint (photo below). Posted below are photos of what I think is an Enchodus jaw and two teeth and also what I think is a partial crab claw but much bigger than any I’ve found before. I also think I found my first arrowhead. Any info greatly appreciated.

    Which 6 should i keep?

    Today was my 27th trip to Big Brook. Cold to start but not as cold as last week when I had to give up and leave. Park rules only allow you to keep 6 “artifacts”. So here is what I found. Which 6 would you suggest i keep? And why? Thank you all
  19. Is this a lateral anomoeodus tooth? I have found a number of the medial teeth likely because the shape is more distinct but this would be my first lateral tooth. 3/8 inches. Thank you

    Bone ID help needed

    I found this 1.5 inch triangular piece of bone in Big Brook. I guess it to be too small to be identified by species. But I am hoping someone can give me some information. One flat side shows bone whereas the other almost has a stone finish. Most striking to my eye is In the 3rd photo (side view) the bone becomes much denser and darker as it gets closer to the flat stone-like outside? surface from photo 2. Any insights greatly appreciated. Thank you
  21. My 26th trip to Big Brook and i had big plans. Previously i had found 2 Mososaur teeth, both in my first 8 trips and both in the same small area. I had returned to that spot before today but without success; no mos and very little of anything else. Today i was going back there determined to find my 3rd (and perhaps 4th). My wife had a hair appointment so i would have 2 additional hours in the water. I was psyched! Success was visualized and i was ready to make it a reality. BUT Mother Nature and the Fossil Gods had other ideas. It was below freezing and my body couldn't keep up with my

    Jaw/teeth of what?

    Can anyone try to indenting what I think is a jaw fragment with teeth, the large one being broken. Approximately 1/2 by 3/8 inches. I presume it to me modern. Thank you as always
  23. For the rank amateurs here is it possible to explain the differences and how to identify these teeth? Of lesser importance I am attaching photos of 3 inch to inch and a half teeth I had previously thought were all Enchodus and then 2 small half inch fragments found yesterday, both heavily striated. As always thank you all

    Another fish? Tooth? ID question

    Apologies but one last fish tooth question from my Saturday hunt in Big Brook. What is it. Is it even A fish tooth? Just over 1/2 inch long. Thank you
