  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. NJ Belemnites

  7. NJ Cretaceous streams tooth id

  8. 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.
  9. I think first is coprolite if anyone can confirm and any help on other 2
  10. N.J. Cretaceous I’d Xiphactinus?

  11. nj cretaceous tooth id

    finally got out with the wifey today at some different streams with the weather not so bad and streams frozen and found a hand full nice teeth in the first pic.......................I'm assuming the second pic is a broken worn enchodus jaw/fang if someone can confirm and also the balance of pics if someone can confirm (although) broken in half if this is reptile of fish tooth,,,,thanks
  12. Palm wood ?

    From my first trip to the brooks a few years back. I just called it plant at the time. Am I even close on either ?
  13. Few finds at big brook nj today

    Hey Guys needed a little help with few things I found today. I'm assuming shark or fish vert in the one pic. I'm most interested in the small...... im guessing bone not sure if its an older rodent bone or what. Funny I found a deer tooth today while sifting kinda freaked me out looked like a human tooth white. Thanks
  14. Big Brook NJ finds

    Sharks tooth is about an inch is this a macko? stone sorry pic is a little unclear its small about 3/4 inch i'm assuming this is quartz it was just a lot clearer then all rest quartz I was sifting thru. I have been to big brook a few times its about an hour and a half drive from me but I find it relaxing and interesting. I visited venice Florida a few months ago found a lot of sharks teeth mostly small ones funny this is the bigger one I have found. I normally just go to the entrance everyone all ways goes to and walk the creek ethier way I'm kind of new at doing this but if there are any frequent Big brook hunters that can give me a few tips I would appreciate it thanks Kevin

  16. Hi, I was wondering if permission was needed to collect at what is left of the Granton quarry in N. Bergen NJ? It sounds like a really cool spot but I am unsure if you need permission from Lowes or not. thanks, Dom

  25. Seashell or Coral?

    My brother found this fossil in Pond Run in Hamilton, Nj. The rock in this area is mostly Triassic and Cretacious, with a small area of rock from the Cambrian. On both sides it has many ridges, and on the front you can see that most of the ridges start in the same area. Front Back I hope that you can identify this. Thank you in advance.
