  1. NJ Cretaceous Unknown

    I found this in my early collecting days (late 90s, early 00s) in one of the typical Monmouth County Cretaceous stream. The texture doesn't at all say bone to me, but that notch has me wondering.
  2. Anyone going to the fossil expo in Edison, New Jersey at all this weekend? It’s going to be my first time going. I wanted to know if anyone could tell me what to expect there? I’m sure it’s going to be really cool.
  3. New Jersey Cretaceous skute/bone

    Hello, I recently found what looks like a piece of bone or skute and was wondering if anyone could identify it by the pattern. Unlike the crocodile and turtle skute I've found here, this appears to have little 'star' shapes rather then divots. Any help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
  4. New Jersey Cretaceous bone/vert ID

    Greetings! I found this in a Monmouth County, New Jersey (USA) Cretaceous deposit yesterday and haven't been able to identify it. The 'smooth' side is concave while other side is convex and appears to come to a point. If I had to guess, I would say it looks reptilian over fish but wanted to know if anyone had any thoughts. As always, any help is greatly appreciated; thanks! -Frank H

  7. I am planning a trip to hunt the cretaceous streams of N.J. on Saturday March 31. I am bringing my boys along for this one. I was wondering if any of you Jersey hunters would like to meet up and join us for the day or just stop by and say hello? I was going to go to Maryland but I don't like to have my boys out at the cliffs, its a little much for my youngest. Plus it has been 2 years since I have been to NJ, I want to get my hands on some Cretaceous goodies!

  13. New Jersey Cretaceous bivalve? ID help

    I found this in a Cretaceous stream in Monmouth County New Jersey. I assume it's a bivalve but I couldn't find anything on in the NJ fossil websites. Anyone know what it is? Thanks! -Frank

  16. Bone or Stone?

    I see a lot of stone or bone (??) like this in my searching. I usually toss them aside but I wanted to see what you guys thought. They are heavy like stone but come in these odd channeled forms and also just in odd shapes. Just curious what they look like to you. Thanks. Andy
  17. My weekend finds

    These are my weekend finds I think I found my first Squalicorax pristodontus, and maybe even a Squalicorax kaupi, a couple vertebrae (??), and a couple brachiopods and snails (??). I'm curious about the snails so any more details would be great. Also, the lone tooth tip at the bottom of the picture. It has a wider angle from the point than all but maybe the Squalicorax pristodontus but it is also much thicker from front to back. It leads me to believe it would have been a relatively large, full tooth. Any ideas what it was? Lastly, It looks like I found at least one shark vertebra (on the left), but I was wondering what the other 3 items came from. Obviously the one on the right is very unique. It is deeply dished on both ends and has some structure between the ends. Thanks for looking!! Andy
  18. My 1st Haul. Id ideas please.

    Hi, I may have met some of you in the New Member area tonight. If not, Hello from NJ!! I went to Big Brook Saturday and actually found some teeth (who would have thought!?). I felt like a bit of a scientist out there all by myself with my camping shovel and gravel screener. There aren't many sharks to choose from in that area (at least not as far as Fossil Guy's website shows). I would be happy to have some ID opinions. Here are the 3 that looked like teeth to me. They all seem to be from different shark types based on color and shape/style. But beyond that, I would be guessing. One of them is a whiter color than the others and has one cusplet still attached. I would guess Mackerel Shark. The other tooth with a more common looking root attached is also more triangular, with no cusplets, at least not any remaining on the root. Maybe a Mackerel Shark as well but missing the cusplets? The other tooth appears similar to a Sand Tiger or Goblin, less the full root. But it doesn't look broken or worn down at the root, so maybe it is a fish tooth?? That one tooth looks like it came from an Acorn Shark These were all in the silt bottom or in the gravel. I'll leave it at that for now. I have some others to show you guys but I'll try not to wear out my welcome yet. Thanks for any ideas or information. Andy
