  1. NJ Brook Identification

    Recently made a trip to Ramanessin Brook and Big Brook. I was able to confidently identify most of my finds, except for these few. Here is what I think they are. Please let me know what you all think. Thank you! #1- coprolite #2- coprolite #3- petrified wood #4- petrified wood #5- bone fragment - is there any way to know where it came from? #1 #2 #3 #4 #5
  2. Help identifying tooth

    Is it possible to narrow down what type of mosasaur a tooth came from? Found a tooth but it looks different from the typical ones I see all over google. Thanks!
  3. Several NJ Cretaceous Non-Shark pathologies

    Hello TFF, I got a couple items from the Late Cretaceous of NJ that seem to be pathological. The first one, an Anomoeodus phaseolus tooth, seems to be very wrinkly and so I deemed it a patho. That is more of a verification as I haven’t seen a pathological one before. The second is an Ischyrhiza mira rostral blade that has a third carina on one of its faces and a slight flattening (flattening better seen in person). This is also a verification as I just didn’t expect to see a patho rostral. The third one is a bit strange. It is definitely a fish tooth. There are prominent growth cracks on the surface & no striations, which supports Xiphactinus. However, the base doesn’t look exactly elliptical (Xiphactinus) or bulging like in Enchodus. But it does look more like X-fish than Enchodus; it just seems as if one side of the base got flattened out, leading me to think that it could be a pathological Xiphactinus. The base also seems to be somewhat hollow (other than the matrix infill). @non-remanié Thanks guys! Anomoeodus phaseolus:
  4. NJ Well Preserved Turtle Peripheral

    Hi everyone, I got this interesting peripheral turtle shell from the Late Campanian Wenonah formation of NJ. It is not reworked and seems to be IDable. It also has some interesting shark predation marks on the top of the first pic. It is about 2.75” X 2.25” @non-remanié Thanks for any help!
  5. Some pics from this year:
  6. New Jersey Finds

    Hello. I finally got around to posting some finds. Besides the teeth idk what I have. I am still new to what I am finding so anything that looks interesting please let me know.
  7. Hello! Back logged on things I cant ID so let's start with this beast of a fragmented tooth.(about a inch and a half) Thank you all .
  8. Two teeth from big brook preserve nj

    Hi all ! I believe the left one is a skate tooth but I cant figure out the right. Thank you (:
  9. My "almost a trophy"

    Just wanted to post a pic. I've been to Big Brook a handful of times over the past year and found some nice shark teeth and other trinkets. This Winter I found a really cool tooth I was very excited about...and then sad about...and then was happy again to have it...even though it was broken. I think it may be a pretty unique find and even though I go for the shark teeth, this one is my favorite find so far. I'm sure you guys will recognize it! Andy
  10. Hello ! I just pulled this strange looking item out from the big brook river in NJ the other day.. Its about a 1/2" in size and that's all the information I have on it. I know for a fact it's not a concretion like my last post! Thank you all for advancing this new comers knowledge & passion for fossils that has recently been ignited .
  11. A friend of mine spotted this on the beach at Belmar, NJ yesterday February 2nd. This is kind of an unusual locale, adjacent to the jetty at Shark River Inlet where the Shark River meets the Atlantic. In the past my buddy and I have found small beachworn fossil shark teeth at this spot, so we thought for old time's sake we'd take a quick look again. We didn't find any teeth (there's much less fine gravel there now than in the past) but he did find this, which is way bigger than anything we've found here before. I have some guesses but I would like other eyes on this too in case I'm missing something obvious. Thanks in advance
  12. nj cretaceous trip today

    the wifey and I did a quick trip today that yielded some nice finds....was a really nice day for the middle of winter...thought id share some pictures from today..:)
  13. nj cretaceous imprint id please

    not sure what this is a imprint of.not positive if anything and or if glaciers could of deposited it or if its cretaceous period....any help please.......thanks
  14. Hey everyone, I am posting a pathological Prognathodon sp. tooth with 4 carinae and an odd slight indentation from the Late Cretaceous of New Jersey. I would like to hear any thoughts about this pathology type and if anyone has seen anything similar. Tooth is 17/16 inches. Thanks! Joseph
  15. Hi all, I'm relatively new to this forum and have been fossil hunting for a few seasons. I'm certain I've run into a few of you in the NJ brooks, since some have mentioned checking out this forum :). I'm hoping to be more active on this forum! A few months ago I found this fossilized bone on a gravel bank. Based on the concave end, I can only surmise that it is a distal femur or acetabulum. Thanks for any and all input! Krystal
  16. Hi! I hunt the creeks in and around NJ for fossils pretty frequently, but found one today that I've not previously seen and can't find any matching pics online for either. I found it in Ramanessin Creek in Holmdel, NJ. I was thinking maybe a fish jaw/mouth bone, but not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Kushmeja
  17. NJ Cretaceous? Pyrite

    Hi everyone, I know it is possible to find teeth with pyrite attached to them in the Jersey brooks (which yield mostly Cretaceous material). I have never seen just a chunk of pyrite come out of here before, however. The pyrite piece below is from a NJ stream - would you say it is in fact from one of the Cretaceous formations present here? It is about 1 inch. Thanks for any opinions!
  18. Hello everyone, I have a couple questions about these two items. The first is a badly crumbling piece of fossil wood. I have not tried stabilizing it yet, but I have heard that wood with this type of preservation always crumbles. If anyone has had luck stabilizing this type of NJ wood please let me know. I am almost completely sure the second piece is just an oddly worn small section of ratfish tritor, but I want to make sure it isn’t something else. Thanks for any help, Joseph
  19. Cretaceous crab pieces

    I believe these are parts from a crab I found in NJ, from what I see I think the large one is from the shoulder or bicep from a crab, is it possible to identify anything else about the animal?this side is fairly flat with the bottom edge protruding out.this side is round but in pretty bad condition.side view of the piece.
  20. I have a ton of belemnites lying around, the picture does not include all of them, just a few examples of what I have, there are probably around three more batches like this I just have not found them yet, (I will post pictures when they are found). Since these are not too spectacular I am also not looking for anything serious but if anyone is interested please contact me through this or PM.
  21. Unknown trace fossil burrow

    Here is a fossil shell I found on a fairly recent trip to big Brook nj, towards the right there is a burrow that looks very straight and in the end of one some kind of dark conical figure is located, not sure what it is, any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  22. Strangest piece I’ve ever found

    This is a long shot but I am hoping anyone can give me an idea of what they think this is. I found it on the beach of Sandy Hook Raritan Bay. I’m posting several pictures. Thank you for any ideas!
  23. Found this 2 weeks ago in Ramanessin Creek in Holmdel, NJ. It looks like a vertebrae from a larger fish like a shark or large ray, but I'm confused by the mushroom like shape of the one side, so I'm not sure. It measures about 1.2" across and about 0.9" high. I though that maybe it was the last vertebrae before the brain stem or something like that, and therefore the mushroom end may be the side nearest the brain and have a different shape. Any help and / or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, John
  24. Going to NJ

    I am going to Cape May County, NJ the middle of this month. I thought while I was there enjoying the beach and surf that I would also look for some fossils. Is there anywhere around Cape May County, Atlantic or Cumberland Counties that I can go hunt for fossils? I figure while I'm in that area I might as well look around.
  25. Hello everyone, had a super quick trip to the cretaceous creeks of new jersey and found this particularly interesting large bone fragment, likely it is a chunk of miscellaneous bone material but it reminds me alot of a scute like ankylosaurus or some sort of other bone scute especially the edge, or from maybe something like a large turtle but I am entirely not sure if it's dinosaur, marine reptile, etc or if there is anyway to tell, looks super suspicious to me anyways so if anyone has any ideas I'd definitely love to hear them. (If more pictures are needed I will definitely be able to get some more angles if necessary)
