I went to Brownies for the first time last Saturday. It was beautiful as the water was completely blown out by the Nor'easter storm of the day before. There were trees down everywhere along the roads near the park. I didn't find much, just a few tiny teeth because of how the water was blown out. So I went back today and was thrilled to find one shark vertebra & two other vertebrae. One looks like it is from a fish. The third is unknown to me. Do you remember the scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark, where Harrison Ford gets into the fight with the guy with the sword & he blows him away with his gun? Well that is how I felt when I came across another fossil hunter & we chatted about our finds & I showed him my shark vertebra. I was so proud until he pulls out a whale vertebra as big as my hand!! I was dying inside, but I also had to laugh because I was so busted. If he is reading this right now, I was awed by your find. I went on to find some nice teeth, shells & two tiny Ecphora.

While on a fossil hunting trip to Rammanssin brook he spotted something in the wall of the Mount Laurel Formation and seen this shark vertebra partially exposed ,,insitu .. just saying here I am. Well when he showed me this vertebra,,,,My jaw just dropped to the floor,,,,I just couldn't believe such a large shark vert could come out of any N.J. Formation and I remembered being at the M.A.P.S collection and seeing big shark vert's in the collection from N.J. but these where about six in association to each other and was just about this size as well,,,maybe a little bigger. Well My Best Ever Buddy in the whole Wide World finally gave me his prize find from NJ. and Is now one of my prize N.J. fossils in my collection. Here is a picture of my new baby....Ain't she beautiful......
