    Help ID Fossil

    Hello thanks taking the time to view my post, a good friend ask me if I could help him out with this Fossil so I joined Up. This was dredged up off the coast of Cape May New Jersey. Any information on it would be greatly appreciated. regards joe

    NJ Eocene Spine? Jaw?

    Found this little thing a few years ago in a stream where Eocene Manasquan Formation is exposed (although I can't entirely rule out Kirkwood Fm). The four possibilities that I see are 1) ray tail spine barb, 2) fish fin spine, 3) crab claw pincer, or 4) jaw. This doesn't look like any of the ray barbs or crustacean pincers that I have collected so I am leaning towards 2 or 4. While the color/texture looks similar to the Eocene material from this site, it could be modern. What do y'all think?
  4. I wanted to show a fossil I found years before I ever joined this forum or took a step in the Cretaceous brooks. This is a Crinoid specimen I found about 20 years ago at the Delaware River in Burlington City, NJ when I was a kid. The Deleware River has a good amount of fossils brought down here from the glaciers. At the time, I did a horrible job prepping (if you can even call it that) this fossil and pretty much destroyed the middle of it. A few months ago, I re-discovered this in a closet at my parents' house. I took some time, polished up the middle, did a little trimming, and n
  5. One of my rarest fossil finds! This is a Pseudocorax affinis that I found while hunting in New Jersey's Cretaceous age streams. This is a very rare find for the area. It's in really nice shape too. One of my favorite teeth.
  6. I went out on a fossil hunt last Thursday to one of the streams I like to hunt at. It was only around 28 degrees F when I arrived so I didn't have the highest hopes. I ended up having my best day both quality and quantity wise! I found my first New Jersey hemi as well as my first tiger shark tooth. Also found a really nice sized sand tiger as well as one that would have been a monster if it was whole. Hope you guys enjoy!!

    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
  8. 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!

    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.

    NJ Eocene Vertebra Centrum

    Going back through some of my early finds. I collected this guy back in 2002. My identification tag merely says "Manasquan? 2002". I know, I know, naughty not to keep better records. The preservation does indeed look like material from the Eocene Manasquan Formation from the Manasquan River and at that time, most of my collecting was occurring in the stretch of the river that is largely upstream from the mixed Miocene/Eocene basal Kirkwood. I did, of course, also visit Cretaceous localities, and I can't entirely rule that out. Ideas for what kind of creature this is from?

    Monmouth Brooks Bone Pieces

    I have more old finds to put out there today. All of these were found in the early 2000s in the various Monmouth County brooks (Big Brook, Manasquan River, Ramanessin, etc). Unfortunately, I have no more detail on locality. All of these were specimens that I showed to Dave Parris a long time ago but I didn't take very detailed notes. Along with suggestions for identifying these, I would also love to know which might be special enough that a museum or researcher might want to add them to their institution. I'm not interested in donating to a private collector but if any of these are significant
  13. Hey everyone, So I am from Northern New Jersey and moved back about a year ago. I always loved going to Big Brook and Shark River but I am hoping to expand my horizons. My friends recently moved to Gloucester County, and like me, also have a background in Plio-Pleistocene Arch/Paleo...as such! we are all giant nerds who love to take day trips together and find neat stuff! I am not too familiar with Gloucester (except for the site being excavated by Rowan), but I was curious if anyone has gone fossil hunting in that county or in areas nearby. If not, I do have a backgro

    Hadrosaur Tooth? New Jersey

    Hello everyone! I found this yesterday in a Cretaceous stream in Monmouth County, New Jersey. It measures 3/4th of an inch long. I was thinking Hadrosaur but I've never seen one this thin so I figured I would look for some other opinions. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! Frank
  15. 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
  16. 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

    Iron Hill Museum Fossils

    I recently took a trip to the Iron Hill Museum in Newark, Delaware. (Which has amazing displays by the way. Its small, but fascinating.) There, I bought a small bag of about 10 fossils. I knew what most of them were, but there are a few I am unsure of what they actually are. I was wondering if anyone on the Forum could help me. All I know is that all of the Fossils were found in either Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, or Pennsylvania. 1. This one I was told that this is some kind of bone fragment. 2. This is also another bone fragment. 3. I think this is a bone fragment.

    Found this in my yard

    I found this in my back yard, it appears to have three tiny fossils (approximately 1cm in size each), getting pictures is hard! I am a very amateur collector, so I really don't know much. I live in Roxbury, Morris County, New Jersey, USA.
  19. Hello all! For those not familiar with the Pinna Layer, it is a very small layer representing a very short period of time (weeks to years) after the meteor impact that caused the great extinction of the Cretaceous period. A very thin layer at the bottom of it actually tests positive for Iridium. Last Summer, I was invited to finish off the last remaining outcrops and along with a very small group of other fossil hunters (including other members here), we finished off the last accessible layer - a project which ended just a few weeks ago. It was a group effort and due to

    1st tooth off NJ beach!

    Went out fishing to make a few last casts for the year and found my 1st shark tooth off New Jersey beach today! Small guy but my 1st off the beach!! Nor’easter few days ago moved a lot of sand around. Anyone care to help identify, and possible age?

    Possible bone from Ramanessin brook?

    I went to the Ramanessin brook a few months ago for the first time, while I was busy looking at my cretaceous shark teeth I completely forgot about this thing I found. To me it looks just like a bone but I have never found any type of bone in New Jersey before, I'm curious if it is one. And if it is, is it possible to identify what this could possibly be from.
  22. Hi guys! Just found this big tooth in Ramanessin Creek in Holmdel, NJ earlier today. It's about 2" long and in excellent condition. Probably the largest tooth I've ever found. I know that it's either a croc, mosasaur or plesiosaur, but I'm not sure which. Any help with the ID would be greatly appreciated! Sorry for the poor pics, I'm still out collecting and my curiosity couldn't wait!

    Fossil Bone

    Found this reputed "fossil bone" specimen five feet below the ground in sandy soil near the Delaware River in Southern New Jersey at the site where a 85' tulip poplar tree fell and lifted the root ball. Identified as "glacial, river worn fossil bone" by Gary's Gem Garden in Mt Laurel, NJ. Any thoughts as to the whether the structure of the reputed ''fossil bone' may be of biological origin? Thanks for your thoughts!

    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
  25. Hey everyone, I am curious to see your largest complete sawfish rostral spines, Xiphactinus sp. teeth, and Enchodus sp. teeth. Here are mine:
