  1. Hello! I found this on the beach in Bay Head, NJ. Is this some kind of tooth? Any ideas what kind? I have additional photos if that would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
  2. Batoid or Squatina Vertebra?

    Hey everyone, I would like your opinion on this interesting vertebra (from the NJ Late Cretaceous). I identified it a long time ago as a first cervical vertebra from either a ray or an angel shark. An expert looked at some pictures and thinks it is a batoid first cervical vertebra. Sorry about the picture quality, these are old photos. Thanks for any help!
  3. nj cretaceous id fang or tooth?

    not sure what I have here......any help please,,,,thanks
  4. Cretaceous bone NJ

    Hi all, a while ago I found a bone in Monmouth County, NJ. Most of the bone's length is worn, but the end surfaces appear to be in okay shape. Not sure if this is enough to ID, but does anyone have an idea? Thank you!
  5. nj cretaceous stream ids please

    any help please....I'm assuming the second is fish jaw......thanks
  6. Hi all, I am wondering what you guys think about the following 2 teeth that I've had fun finding in the brooks in Monmouth County, NJ. Do you think the 1st set of 3 pics is a Serratolamna serrata? In the 2nd set of 4 pics, I am showing a Cretolamna appendiculata (left) next to the unidentified tooth (right), which I suspect is a Cretoxyrhina mantelli based on the 1) broad + rounded + minimized cusplets, 2) angled + curved shape of the blade/tooth, 3) curved/cupped shape of the root. I sincerely appreciate all of your input!
  7. nj cretaceous bone id

    I don't know if anybody can shed any info on just this small piece of bone.....like reptile,mammal ect....................thanks
  8. I didn't get any firm id on following tooth. Although worn, there are still spots of enamel, and it may have 2 worn down cutting edges. I'm assuming mosasaur. Any other opinions?
  9. any help please.....thanks
  10. Hi Everyone, I was recently out collecting along Ramnessin Creek in Holmdel, NJ when I found this fossil. It's about 1.5" long and appears to be a bone of some sort, possibly a toe bone or a claw, but I'm far from an expert. Can anyone help with an ID? I have a few more pics as well, but was over the max size for a post, but I can add them as a reply if anyone would like to see more pics. It looks very similar to some dinosaur claws I saw online, but I didn't want to get ahead of myself and assume that is what I found, so I figured that I would see what others have to say. The funny thing is that I also found my first Mosasaur tooth the same day, after about 50-60 trips out in that general area collecting fossils. Thanks for the help, John
  11. Really enjoyed the fossil expo yesterday In Edison, NJ. Just wanted to share some of my purchases with all of you. 90% of my purchases came from an expert or directly from a paleontologist that found the fossils. The only downside is that those who deal the Moroccan stuff.. you have to be careful. I came across some phony specimens. Like mosasaur Teeth plastered onto a different species jaw, or spinosaurus claws that are mostly fabricated. In any case if you are interested in buying Moroccan fossils, I suggest talking to somebody who is an expert there, like a paleontologist, and show them a picture of the specimen or bring it directly to them to tell you if the specimen is okay or not. That’s exactly what I did, and I felt much more comfortable because I only bought material that was fool proof. At least I hope haha. Anyway they have so many options, especially for those who love minerals. Looking forward to going back. Here are some pics This first pic is of an Allosaurus bone.
  12. Awesome day today,spur of the moment with getting off work early and grabbing the wife to go hunting and so glad we did,,,,,,some awesome finds today!!!!!!

  19. Hi everyone, I'm seeking your insightful expertise again! I found a rock at Ramanessin brook recently, and noticed a relatively consistent crosshatching pattern on it. The crosshatch pattern can be seen a little on the flip side of the rock as well, which makes me wonder if this is just geologic, or could it be some impression of fish scales? Thank you very much for your help! *EDIT: Images updated
  20. not sure if this is a small mosasaur tooth, bottom is chipped but seems to have cutting edge or croc? and if the other is just a rock thanks

  23. NJ Cretaceous streams tooth id

  24. This past weekend was the 50th annual Rutgers Geology Museum open house, which was an excellent opportunity to attend guest lectures by professionals and also a chance see the museum's collection. The event was very well attended, and in between lectures (the lecture by Dr. Isaiah Nengo on his work with Nyanzapithecus alesi was excellent) seeing the museum was a hurried, crowded affair. The museum building is a tall 19th century structure with many large tall windows, so on this sunny Saturday sun glare on the glass cases was unfortunately a real and unavoidable problem. Nevertheless, I made an effort to get some photos of the museum to share with TFF. The Mastodon is a Salem County NJ find. Particularly exciting for me as a huge fan of Phytosaurs was seeing their specimen of Rutiodon manhattenensis, which despite its specific name was found on the New Jersey side of the Hudson. Yet another example of New York stealing New Jersey's credit! Hidden in a corner (it was packed in there, things crammed into corners to make room for tables) was a skull of Mosasaurus "maxmimus" which I'd have loved to known more about since it was apparently a New Jersey find. Alas, no more info than that. Next to it was a cast of the original find Mosasaurus hoffmanii from the Netherlands, which was neat to see in real scale.
  25. I think first is coprolite if anyone can confirm and any help on other 2
