  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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)
  8. Hello All, First-time poster but long time lurker. I was out hunting with my daughter on the 17th at Big Brook preserve and after about 2.5 hours we found an unusual rock that may or may not be anything of interest. Along with a good series of finds in an ignored gravel bar that included sharks teeth, Belemnitella, Exogyra ( typical I know), a fox femur (should I post for ID?), and some coral, my daughter and I found a unique shaped rock. I am way too new at this to tell if it is anything. So I figured I would put this up here and hopefully a few of you will be able to offer us some assistance. We just don't know if this is a keeper or not. Thank you to everyone who is willing to help and I can't express my gratitude enough. Big Brook Preserve, NJ Found in a gravel bar in the brook.
  9. Big Brook NJ quick afternoon trip today.

    Hello, any help with the attached would be great. I think I might have found fish poop, shark tooth, an an unknown item. The brook was high today so I could not get around to easy. I am hoping to go back later this week.
  10. NJ Brook Identification

    Earlier in the week I made a trip to Ramanessin Brook in Holmdel, NJ. I came back with a bunch of teeth and fragments, including these tiny things that I have clue what to think of. Any help is greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you need a different photo. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7
  11. NJ Brook Reptile Tooth Identification

    I found this tooth several years ago in the Ramanessin Brook in Monmouth County, NJ. I initially thought it was from a mosasaur, but now I am having second thoughts. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  12. Hi everyone, I just returned from a summer in northern New Jersey and had the chance to fossil hunt at the Ramanessin Brook site near Holmdel, New Jersey. We went on 7/28 after a series of heavy rainstorms, so we knew we would have an easy time at finding recently exposed material. We found the usual cretaceous shark teeth fossils, and then perching on the river rocks was this beautiful lower jawbone. I have included a photo of how it was found and the general site area. The jawbone itself does not appear fossilized with minerals and looks quite porous, while I am assuming the dentine in the teeth was well fossilized and has unique hues of blue, red, and brown that are difficult to capture in the photo. The size and specialization of the teeth remind me of a more modern mammal like a raccoon, but I am from Texas and unfamiliar with what is possible to find at this usually marine cretaceous locality. Is it possible that a more recent mammal's jawbone had fossilized and become uncovered in the same area? I am excited to see what you experts are thinking, and thank you in advance! I would be happy to take more photos if needed.
  13. NJ Big Brook Fossil Bone ID

    Thought this was a very odd shape, bone something?
  14. Horn corals?

    Hi everyone, My niece found this item in Cape May NJ. During the years, I have found many Bryozoan pieces as well as many Tabulata and Rugosa. She thinks its a tooth... to me it looks like a colony of horn (Rugosa) corals.... what do you think? Thanks Pedro
  15. Some recent finds of mine Group #1 S texanus?
  16. Teeth

    I am an amateur at identifying fossils. There's only so few I know. Do you know what these are? I found them in New Jersey. (Point of reference: #8 is 3/4 of an inch long.)
  17. NJ fossil hunting

    Hello everyone I'm new at fossil hunting. I've been on 3 solo hunts. I found about 20 shark teeth. All small ones from sand shark, crow, goblin. And also other fossils which I have to get checked out. Not sure what it is.. but have anyone heard about possible megalodon teeth in NJ ? THANKS!!
  18. Big Brook finds/ some Id help

    Some cool Big Brook finds...some are pretty straight forward, but as for othes, if anyone can help with some IDs I’d appreciate it...getting a little better with these finds. #1 gastropod
  19. wanting to go on a trip

    I'd like to go collecting with someone or a group in July. Anywhere in eastern PA or Northern NJ. Anyone interested?
  20. A few NJ Cretaceous trips

    Here's a good assortment of my finds from 3 trips into the late Cretaceous of New Jersey earlier this spring. It's a mix of Wenonah and Navesink formation fossils from the late Campanian. The best finds were 2 pretty nice hadrosaur teeth for NJ but there's a good variety of material including a shamer broken plesiosaur tooth, small mosasaur tooth, a nice Ischyodus (ratfish) palatine mouth plate, a few sharks teeth (mostly Scapanorhynchus and Squalicorax) and more. There's even 2 small pieces of heteromorphic ammonite in there, Nostoceras hyatti and Didymoceras. Let me know if you'd like any more specific identifications.
  21. Big Brook NJ Vertebrate Fossil

    Took our first trip to Big Brook Preserve in NJ. Great day finding small shark teeth and inkpens. Came across this bone. My first thought is that it is a modern day vertebrate, even thought it looks like a face lol. It is light in weight as well. It looks to have matrix attactined it some areas, but it may just be clay from the stream bed. Any input would be helpful. Thanks
  22. 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!
  23. 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!
  24. nj cretaceous id fang or tooth?

    not sure what I have here......any help please,,,,thanks
  25. 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!
