  1. Hello, So I just moved back to New Jersey from the UK and when going through my old things, I came across a tooth that I found from Big Brook years ago. I used to work in Plio-Pleistocene zooarch at hominin sites and so I immediately thought reptile (it semi looks like some of the fossil croc teeth I would have to work with). I think it might be Plesiosaur but I am not quite sure! Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Hello, I was born and raised in NJ and fossil hunting was always a huge hobby of mine. In fact, I turned it into a career by working in Paleoecology and Pleistocene Zooarcheology when I got older. I just finished my PhD in the UK and after many years, I am back in New Jersey visiting my family. I haven't seen many recent posts in this particular group but I was hoping if anyone can help. I used to primarily go to Big Brook for fossil hunting in NJ (I even found marine reptile teeth there!), however, last time I was there, I noticed that it was not only incredibly polluted (which made me sad) but well...scarce compared to when I was younger (last time I was there was roughly 5-6 years ago). I am curious if this sub has any recommendations for areas that I can go to in order to get back into this hobby. I reside in Morris county but am willing to travel a bit. Essentially, I am not up to date regarding areas that I can go to! I am really looking forward visiting sites before winter hits so any insight would be insanely appreciated. Thank you so much!
  3. Possible Triassic tracks

    Mercer County, New Jersey, USA. Hello, I recently found these two specimens and was wondering if they look good for Triassic tracks. If so, I heard they are very difficult to attribute to a certain species but any information or leads on that would be greatly appreciated (or should I just stick to the Cretaceous streams ). Note - these are NOT from the spot I found my last trackway (#5 on link below), I've just been obsessed lately with finding similar spots close to home. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
  4. Bone find in New Jersey

    Hello. I found this bone on a New Jersey Beach. I found it 2 days after a recent hurricane came through. It was not burried in the sand. At first i thought it was a dried up scuba flipper but after i "knocked"on it it sounded i realized it wasnt rubber. I have no idea what it is it was recommended by a member to come here to share it with the members they would be able to identify it. Thank you for your time I wish you all luck.
  5. Found this on a NJ beach.

    I found this with some other rocks on the beach, after a storm had come through the area.
  6. 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.

  8. 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)

  18. NJ Crustacean Parts

    Hi everyone, I would like some help with 2 Late Campanian crab specimens found some time ago. The first is some type of crab claw. The second is a partial crab carapace. I haven’t been able to find anything that really matches them. They are both 1 centimeter in maximum dimension. Thanks for any help!
  19. Extraordinarily Rare NJ Cretalamna species

    Hi everyone, I have this interesting tooth from the Wenonah formation (Late Campanian) of New Jersey. It matches best with Cretalamna, but it has a nutrient groove and one of the cusplets has a “crown” around it. It is 5/8 inches. It is the first of this tooth type I had ever seen being found, so I am basically baffled as to the species. Any help is greatly appreciated! @siteseer @MarcoSr @Al Dente @MikaelS @sagacious
  20. Found this stone among the stones in a decorative border around a relative's yard in NJ. Have no idea where these stones originated. Any thoughts would be helpful. Possible fossil is 3 inches long and 3/4 inch at its widest.
  21. NJ Cretaceous Brook Bone - Fish or Bird?

    Really not sure what to make of this type of bone? Any ideas?
  22. 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?
  23. 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!
  24. 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!
  25. 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!
