  1. Sand tiger shark teeth ID confirmation

    Found these on the NJ beach this summer. Just looking for confirmation that I ID them correctly. Thank you in advance for any feedback.
  2. Big Brook NJ

    Other things I found today at Big Brook besides the bones I posted
  3. Bone ID

    Does anyone know what type of bone this?
  4. Bone or Wood

    Hi. Went to big brook today in nj. First time I ever picked up something that was not a sharks tooth. Found some good things but have no idea. Any thought would be awesome!! Mark
  5. Shark ID Help

    Hi. Found these this summer on the beach in NJ. Have no idea what they are. Any help will be much appreciated! Mark
  6. On a whim I decided to stop by the Big Brook site in NJ to see what might have washed up after the rain yesterday...not a lot of shark teeth at all but plenty of weird mammal bits for some reason! I'm not good at all with figuring out mammal material so I figured I'd post some pictures to the forum and get people's thoughts. (Also I suppose it remains to be seen whether this is genuine Pleistocene material or stained, semi-recent bones...) These are smartphone pics (& Android at that) so excuse the quality. This first one is a tiny jaw of what I'm assuming is a rodent of some kind - the size is really throwing me off here. The same jaw is here on the bottom alongside a couple goblin sharks, plus an end of a random limb bone up top. Horse teeth? (The ends on both are broken, unfortunately - these are the most distinctive edges) (image size limit reached, more in next post)
  7. Teeth at Big Brook and Ramanessin NJ

    I found this tooth in Ramanessin Brook near Big Brook. The guy leading the group said it was a broken shark tooth but he was in a hurry and barely looked at it. I don’t think it looks like a shark tooth. The first picture shows the sharp edge on the front of the tooth.
  8. Ramanessin brook, NJ oddity

    Not sure if this is actually a fossil or modern. I suspect the latter. Its a 1/4 inch across and very flat
  9. My wife and I spent a couple of hours wading in Ramanessin Brook in NJ yesterday afternoon sifting for shark teeth and anything else of interest. Nothing spectacular but it was surprisingly steady for a late season trip. It was surprising to me just how much the stream had changed since my last trip there. Many of the big trees across the water had been moved and the gravel beds shifted significantly.
  10. Bone? Tooth? or Nothing?

    Hi. Need some help with this one because I usually only collect shark teeth. I was at Big Brook in NJ and a came across this. I feel like it is something but I have no idea. Thank you in advance for any feedback.
  11. Fossil ID

    Hello just wanted to see if anyone could help ID this tooth. We found it at the big brook reserve in colts neck, NJ During the Cretaceous, our continents were nearly in their present positions. However, the Earth was much warmer. This resulted in high sea levels. As a result, Europe was composed of numerous islands, while most of the North American coastal plain was submerged. States such as Georgia and Florida were completely submerged. The high sea levels also caused North America to be split in two. A great interior seaway flowed through much of the great plain states, from Texas to North Dakota and through Northern Canada. This can be seen in the sketch below. New Jersey was also submerged. Remains of prehistoric animals accumulated on the sea floor that is now New Jersey. These remains were buried by the nutrient rich sediments coming from shore, and are now part of fossil bearing layers of the Monmouth Group. These Cretaceous marine fossil layers are exposed by brooks that cut down through sediments in the Big Brook area. Numerous fossils of sharks can be found as well as invertebrates such as mollusks and Belemnites. Also, the great reptiles that ruled the seas in the Cretaceous can occasionally be found. These creatures include Mosasaurs, Pleisiosaurs, and large Crocodiles. Thank you in advance.
  12. NJ Crustacean Parts

    Hi everyone, I would like some help with 2 Late Campanian crab specimens found some time ago. The first is some type of crab claw. The second is a partial crab carapace. I haven’t been able to find anything that really matches them. They are both 1 centimeter in maximum dimension. Thanks for any help!
  13. Fossil ID (Shark Tooth)

    I look for teeth on the beach all the time and I found this one this summer. It the 3rd one of this type I found this summer. Is this a Bull Shark? Sorry for my fingers. Couldn't get the picture to focus on paper. Thank you in advance for any feedback. Mark
  14. Fossil ID (Shark Tooth)

    I went to Big Brook in NJ last week found this tooth and I have no idea what kind it is; maybe a goblin. Sorry for my fingers. Couldn't get the picture to focus on paper. Thank you in advance for any feedback. Mark
  15. Fossil ID (Shark Tooth)

    I went to Big Brook in NJ last week found this tooth and I have no idea what kind it is. Sorry for my fingers. Couldn't get the picture to focus on paper. Thank you in advance for any feedback. Mark
  16. Fossil ID 3 (Shark Tooth)

    I went to shark river in NJ and found this in the middle of the creak with my sifter. It was 6-10 inches under dirt and rocks. Why is it still white? I was a little surprised. Would love some feedback on this. Thank you in advance for any comments. Mark
  17. Extraordinarily Rare NJ Cretalamna species

    Hi everyone, I have this interesting tooth from the Wenonah formation (Late Campanian) of New Jersey. It matches best with Cretalamna, but it has a nutrient groove and one of the cusplets has a “crown” around it. It is 5/8 inches. It is the first of this tooth type I had ever seen being found, so I am basically baffled as to the species. Any help is greatly appreciated! @siteseer @MarcoSr @Al Dente @MikaelS @sagacious
  18. Please help identify some Big Brook finds!

    I took a trip to Big Brook in Monmouth County, NJ yesterday and found some things that I need help identifying. Any help would be appreciated! Pic #1: Possibly sea urchin spines?
  19. Is this a seed?

    At the risk of sounding silly, I can't figure out if this is a fossil or seed. I found it on the bottom of a stream in Monmouth County, NJ, along with some other things that I need to photograph in daylight before asking for opinions. It doesn't float, if that helps. Thank you for your help!
  20. Is this a fossil?

    Hi! It's me again! This is another find from Big Brook in Monmouth County, NJ. It was recovered from the stream bed. I'm not sure it it's even a fossil, but it stuck out to me, especially because of the indentation. Thank you for your help!
  21. Is this some sort of salmonoid fang?

    Hi everyone! I found this fang-looking thing last year at Big Brook in Monmouth County, NJ. I recovered it from the stream bed. It has multiple rows of serrations running from bottom to top, and some indentations, too. I've attached pictures of it next to a ruler to show its size and multiple pictures of it from different angles. This picture of it pinched between my fingers shows the bottom on the "fang." Thank you in advance for any help you can give!
  22. Mosasaurus or Croc

    Found this yesterday while hunting with the family, in Big Brook. Can't tell if it's Croc, Mosasaurus, or something else. I forgot to include a ruler in the pictures, but the fragment is about 5 inches in length. Any help on how to safely remove the green sand stuck to it would be greatly appreciated.
  23. Found in Big Brook NJ - I belive it's a turtle shell fragment, but am not sure. Any help ID'ing is much apreciated. Thanks as always. Cheers
  24. Unknown Fossils

    I've had these for a while and I've always wondered what they are. Can anyone identify them? I think both were found in Big Brook.
  25. NJ Mystery Fossil

    I recently went to Big Brook and found this. Can anyone identify this? Thanks.
