Big Brook NJ Trip

Recommended Posts

hokietech96

Hi. I went to Big Brook again on Friday for my weekly quick trip. We had a really bad rain storm mid week so the the water was the highest I have ever seen it and the creek floor was like quicksand because of the 8-10 inches of fresh sand and other snarge. Every time I took a step my foot would sink down. The first 2 hours was nothing special. More of a struggle getting around. But the last hour I found a very productive spot. I posted one of the finds in fossil I’d. A big thanks you to @The Jersey Devil for all is patients and help with ID. Enjoy the pics. Hope I ID everything correctly. 

 

 

 

Plesiosaur tooth.  Super excited about this one!

Nice haul. The tooth above is actually a nice specimen of a Carcharias samhammeri.

 

Some of the teeth you have labeled as Scapanorhynchus are worn teeth of other species. The tooth in the top left corner of that pic might be a Hybodus tooth, can’t see it too clearly.

Congrats on the plesiosaur tooth! That's certainly a fossil on my bucket list.

Thanks for the clarification ID. It’s tough to ID some of these. I will take an individual picture of the upper left in the morning. Thanks again for your help.

Here is a better picture of that one tooth that could be hybrodus. Thanks for taking a look.

Never mind, it’s not Hybodont. Most likely an abraded goblin.

Thanks for taking a look.  Some of the other teeth that are worn that are not goblin, are the identifiable?

Not really. Honestly it’s not even worth labeling the worn ones as there are a lot of teeth around.
