  1. Nj Cretaceous tooth question

    Would this tooth be considered pathological because of this cusp twisting in or is this common.......thanks
  2. Big Brook

    I was fortunate enough to follow up my Potomac River trip with a Big Brook trip yesterday. I had to see a client in the morning that is a couple of miles from Big Brook. So I decided to swing by and jump in the creek. For the first time this winter there was someone else hunting while I was there. I was fortunate enough to run into another TFF member (brad hinkelman) in the creek. Back to back days in different states running into different TFF members. What the chances... I guess pretty good. Anyway, enjoy the pictures. is this a drum fish tooth? If this is it is my first! not sure if the top two or bottom piece is anything.
  3. nice little hunt today in the streams of new jersey,was cool running into hokietech96 as well......
  4. NJ Unknown - fish Mouth plate ?

    Hi everyone, I have this strange fossil from the New Jersey Cretaceous. When I first found it, I thought it was a sponge. Now I am kind of confused about it. It has a lot of “buds” on it that are embedded on a bony(??) “base” that has striations (might be hard to see this in pictures). I am really hoping that it is a fish mouth plate. Another thing is that there appear to be more small “buds” emerging from the bony(??) “base.” I appreciate any input! Let me know if better pics are needed, I’ll try to make them sharper. @non-remanié @Al Dente @MarcoSr @siteseer @Trevor @frankh8147 @Carl
  5. Big Brook

    Hope everyone’s week is going well. Was fortunate enough yesterday to go to Big Brook....again. I think this trip gave me the biggest variety of findings since I have been going to there and the most challenging to ID. (20+ times since August). Yes I have the bug. Anyway, enjoy the pictures and any feedback would be greatly appreciated. row 1-3 Squalicorax Kaupi row 4 I actually think the one on the right is Squalicorax Pristidontus top row Ischyrhiza Mira ( not 100% on the last one bottom row Enchidus This exactly an inch long. I think it might be a fish tooth. Xiohactinus? row 1-2 Archeolamna Kopingensis row 3 Cretolamna Appendiculata row 4 Protolamna Borodini (if I ID this right, this is my first one. If I did, it’s because of @the jersey devil website) The first tooth is one of the nicest teeth I found there. Almost feel like it doesn’t belong there. I going to guess Scapanorhynchus Texanus because I have never seen any other species that large. The two on the right are Carcharias Samhammeeri. I initially thought the bottom left was as well but going with Paranomotodon Angustidens because if the root. all Scapamorhynchus Texans bottom right has something interesting in it upper right possible coral? Have no experience with that. half of larger very and small vert some type of modern bone? crab claws bottom right I believe is half of a Anomoeodus tooth. Thanks for taking the time to look at my pictures and all my rambling. Feel free to correct me with any of my IDs. Much appreciated.
  6. NJ Cretaceous osteoderm/mouth plate

    Hey everyone, i have this interesting Croc osteoderm/fish mouth plate. I am leaning a lot more towards Croc, but this one looks pretty different than usual because of the dimples being a different shape and arranged in a row; maybe it’s just from a different part of the body. It would also be complete if it’s Croc, which is unusual. Size is about 3/4”. It is definitely not a concretion in case some pics are misleading (some bony structure is still visible on the back of the specimen when looking at it in person). @non-remanié @frankh8147 @Trevor @Plax @Al Dente @MarcoSr Thanks!
  7. Big Brook

    Hi. Took my bi-weekly trip to Big Brook this week. Had the whole place to myself again. It was not to cold. Enjoy the the pics. Any feedback is always greatly appreciated Mark Scapanorhynchus Texanus Squalicorax Kaupi top row- Archaeolamna kopingensis middle- Carcharias Samhammeri Bottom row- sawfish Ischyrhiza Mira Cretolamna Appendiculata I’m assuming modern bone because I’m not that lucky this pic is the bottom of the above picture bottom right. Not sure if it is anything Found a black m&m. Oh the humor. I don’t think everything below are concretions but just want to make sure before I toss it.
  8. Mosasaur?

    Hi. This is kind of on the small side. I know it is something. Mosasaur? Thanks for any feedback. Mark
  9. My 1st Cretaceous Croc??

    Found in NJ in a cretaceous stream. I thought maybe a crocodile tooth?? Thanks!! Andy
  10. NJ Cretaceous Coral

    Hello everyone, I got a question about the ID of this coral. I brought it to Ralph Johnson and he said that it is either a coral or belemnite, but when I was consolidating it, I realized that it is porous, which is very much like a coral and unlike a belemnite. The specimen consists of two pieces and is about 5/8” long. Has anyone seen a coral like this? @non-remanié @Plax @Al Dente @MarcoSr @siteseer @frankh8147 Thanks, Joseph
  11. nj Cretaceous id please fragment

    don't know if anyone can shed some light on what I have here......thanks
  12. I have been slacking in my posts the past couple of trips, so I figured I would catch up. First up are carboniferous plant fossils from McIntyre Mountain, PA:
  13. NJ Cretaceous Croc or Mosasaur?

    Hey everyone, I got this tooth from Jersey that struck me as being something different at first glance. The general shape, very pronounced cutting edges, and concentric layers visible at the base made me think that it’s not Mosasaur, but rather some type of Croc. If it’s Croc it is something other than Thoracosaurus which makes it a unique tooth. It’s about 3/4”. Thanks! Joseph @non-remanié @frankh8147 @Al Dente @siteseer @MarcoSr @Carl
  14. Concretion or a good find?

    I was a big brook yesterday and brought a bunch of stuff home to dry out and see if they really are something or just concretions. Appreciate any feedback! Thanks #1
  15. Happy new year! I had a very relaxing and enjoyable 30 degree day in the creek yesterday. Tried out my my first pair chest waders yesterday and they where awesome. Anyway I feel like I had a decent haul. Last time I went out I almost threw out a hybodont fin spike. Thankfully I posted a picture before I did anything. It caused me though to think everything was something yesterday. There I’m going to make a separate post of some items I’m not sure of. Enjoy the pics. Any thoughts on I’d would be greatly appciated. Squalicotax kaupi Squalicorax pristodontus
  16. NJ Cretaceous - just a Cliona fragment?

    Hi everyone, I want to make sure that this is just a fragment of Cliona sponge and not something else. Thanks for any help.
  17. Nj Cretaceous quick stop today

    A quick stop at the stream netted a few keepers
  18. nj cretaceous fish or croc ?

    although cracked in half just wondering with the hollow center,fish tooth Enchodus or small croc ? thanks
  19. Hey all! New to the forum and happy to finally have something to share. Went hunting in Montague, NJ two days ago on the first of the year and had some luck. I found directions to the site, "Mountaintop Rd. Fossil Beds" using instructions from the first entry on this list. Looks like it's all in the same town as Trilobite Mountain, which I unsuccessfully searched for early on in the day. Eventually I decided to try my hand at this second one before sunset hit. It's a shame that somebody seems to be using this property to hunt animals instead of fossils, but using some discretion you should be able to get in just fine. To my delight, my first fossil hunt yielded many interesting specimens. Shells and more than a few instances of Phalangocephalus dentatus. Wondering about how i might prep this one, which I found inside a larger hunk of rock utterly clogged with shells and trilobite fragments. Would it be useful to take a dremel to it? Also found this strange negative, wondering if anybody more experienced than myself has opinions on what could have left this impression. I hope to do many more fossil hunts in my lifetime. This was a perfect day for me, I can't wait to get back out and do it again. Cheers everybody!
  20. Following the naming convention of others before me, I had the 1st hunting trip of the new decade (at least at Big Brook!). I was the only one in the parking lot 1/1/20. I think I've actually hunted all three holidays this season, and enjoyed the nice time in nature. Here are some of my finds. Andy
  21. Hi everyone, I think I found a year maker recently, and in good time! The 1st tooth pictured is what I am praying is a Pseudocorax affinis, which is incredibly rare here. The 2nd tooth is an Archaeolamna, I just need confirmation that it’s a symphyseal. Both teeth are Late Cretaceous. Edit: I forgot to add the size, 1st tooth: 12 mm, 2nd tooth: 10 mm @non-remanié @Al Dente @siteseer Happy Holidays! 1st tooth:
  22. Another Trip to Big Brook

    Hi. Went to Big Brook again yesterday. It’s turning out to be a weekly addiction for me haha. It was in the 30s and sunny to start and then ended cloudy with snow. Fun times. Not sure what everyone else does to keep hands warm while sifting in freezing water. As a runner, I learned a trick to put latex gloves on as you first layer under whatever gloves you normally use. It works amazing. Keeps yours hands super warm. Hope this helps anyone in the forum. Goblin tooth without the root. (Thanks jersey devil) !
  23. Trip to Big Brook

    Hi. I thought it would be a good day yesterday to go to Big Brook yesterday. It rained for almost two straight days and the temperature jumped up to 55-60 degrees. I thoughts with all the rain and warmer temperature I would be able to get some good finds yesterday. Yesterday the temperature dropped into the 30's and it snowed. The water was the highest I have ever seen it because of the rain. I could not even get to my favorite spot because it was under water. I found a couple decent spots to look around. Here are my finding. A couple things I have no idea what they are and something I think I know what they are. If anyone can help with the ID's that would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  24. Tooth ?

    Here is a piece from the Big Brook area in New Jersey. I've had it a while but never got around to posting it. The texture looks like tooth ?
  25. New Jersey Cretaceous Turtle Bone?

    Hello everyone, I found this bone while on a hunt in the cretaceous creeks of new jersey, very odd bone and definitely feels fossilized. My best guess is turtle but I am very unsure, I appreciate any feedback on this piece if it is Id'able thank you.
