  1. 2020 best finds

    I was fortunate enough to find many nice teeth during 2020. These are some of either my nicest, favorite, or somewhat uncommon finds from my searching at Big Brook, NJ. These finds are late cretaceous (~65 million years old). Sources for identification: http://www.njfossils.net/cover.html Fossil Shark Teeth of the world, by Cocke The first picture are 4 of my largest and most complete goblin teeth (Scapanorhynchus texanus), all found on the same day! I think it had rained overnight, though there was no rain in the forecast. I think this along with unseasonably high temperatures led to bit of erosion. Picture #2: Mackerel teeth Left to right, first is Cretolamna appendiculata (lata?) and the latter two: Archaeolamna kopingensis. Mackerel teeth are some of my favorite due to their shape and cusplet size. Picture #3: A branchial tooth from an early drum fish (Anomaeodus phasolus). More photos will be uploaded in a comment.
  2. Over the Columbus Day weekend, I planned to make a trip up from Virginia to New Jersey to visit my mother and other family. The trip offered the opportunity to check out one of the cretaceous sites in NJ that I have read about so much here--and that my son has been begging to visit for, like, a year. Never having collected there, I reached out to forum members @Trevor and @The Jersey Devil for any suggestions they could offer to a couple of cretaceous creek newbies and they really came through! (Thanks, again guys!) With tips in hand we arrived at our collecting location early on Sunday, hoping to stay ahead of the rain that was forecast from the remnants of Hurricane Delta. Water conditions were very good, with low and clear water and plenty of dry bank to move around, and the air temps were in the 60's, so it ended up being a perfect day for collecting. My son wanted a mosasaur tooth, of course, but my goal was just to find a nice crow shark tooth, as I think they are super cool and unlike any shark teeth we have down here. We kind of knew a couple of areas to try, so we set out to the farthest one, figuring to get the longer hike out of the way first. We had our screens and shovels, but we didn't really know exactly the best places in the creek to try in terms of the current / gravel / silt / mud mix that would hold the best fossils. We set out to learn by trial-and-error. The first hour or so was a bit discouraging. Despite knowing we were generally in the right place, all we had come up with was a couple of very small, broken tooth fragments. But we kept at it, moving around a bit and changing the material we were working. It wasn't too much longer until we saw the sight every collector wants to see.
  3. Large shark tooth

    Found this large tooth in Big Brook today. Is it just a very large goblin shark? If so she was a big one! Shame it’s not a full tooth. Also attached is a side by side comparison to the normal size I find. Thanks
  4. Got out this past weekend after hurricane Isaias brought some heavy rain and wind across the state (NJ) last week. Lots of down trees and moved stream banks make for a good day surface hunting this weekend Found a entire crab claw, first for this area for me. Bunch of good teeth inc Goblins, Mackerel, Crow, Sawtooth
  5. Stopped by my favorite honey hole to walk the stream this past weekend after some decent rain. Here are the better Goblins laying right on top and my biggest vertebrae to date!

    Mostly the crow shark teeth, goblin, mackeral were collected from big brook. Maybe some others but about 25% isnt big brook.

  8. Micro Finds - 2/10

    Along with the 3 pristine Hemis I found at Brownies Beach, I also found some interesting micro finds. I really like the 3 sand tiger teeth with the perfect sharp cusps on each side and they're REALLY sharp too. I also was able to score 2 nice Angelshark teeth (I love how they stand up on their root). I also found what I believe to be a tooth from the rostrum of a Sawfish? or perhaps some species of fish. I need help to ID the micro tooth, it has small serrations on either side and I have found one similar to this previously on another trip.
  9. goblin shark

    A very nice example of this species from this site. The site is a reworked river lag deposit that produces exceptional teeth.
  10. shark tooth ID (fairly gnarly)

    Greetings, I came across this one tonight and thought it resembles a Goblin shark tooth. Found it in a very congested area of the creek with plenty of small rocks and shale around. Travis county
  11. Good evening! I've been going through and reasearching some of my summer trip finds this year and I am hoping for a little help! I am trying to figure out what the teeth in this picture are. This website has been incredibly helpful and has provided me with some think I knows but a few of them have me really stumped. They were all collected in Virginia and North Carolina. PLease feel free to correct my educated guesses. The larger teeth have smooth edges. The only one that has some seration is the small, wider one at the bottom-middle of the picture. If you need any close up picture I can certainly provide those as well. I thought the ones on the left were sand tigers but because of the shorter, wider root and "fatness" of the dentin I am considering otherwise. Plus they are not flat with the little upturn toward the end that I always distinguish with sand tigers. I have no clue what the ones with the dark greyish and brownish grey coloring are. (This would be the one closest to the 2" mark and his friends the left at 9 and 10 o'clock. Everyone's help is GREATLY appreciated!!! Thanks again and happy hunting!! Joyce
