    Tooth ID Help

    Hi. I found this tooth today and it looks like it has worn down serrations. I was wondering anyone can help with the ID on this. @The Jersey Devil

    Big find at Big Brook Preserve

    I just took my friends out for a fossil trip their first time yesterday; where we could all get together and do something cool and introduce them to the fun pastime and interesting research I dabble in for my birthday. I should’ve known he’d have beginners luck but I was not expecting this find when he plucked it out from the water. They all had a blast and it was a beautiful day. Any and all input into trying to discern what creature it could’ve came from? The more the merrier! A couple other angles

    Various NJ Fossils need ID

    Hey so a few days ago I went to Big Brook and found a few dozen teeth along with some ray teeth, gastropods, and fish teeth, and these are my questionable specimens. IDs would be helpful! I'm thinking 1st is enchodus jaw, 3rd is some fish crusher tooth, 6th might be a fish jaw or bone material, 7th is possibly an enchodus jaw, 9th could be a scute or bone material, 11th looks like half a ray tooth. But I would like other people's opinions too on my finds. Thank you! Also I am pretty confident on this being a reptile bone but also want an opinion on it

    Large vertebra

    Found this large vertebra in Big Brook 7/24/21. Measures 1.5” x 1” x .5” In the last picture it’s next to vertebra I usually find for size compassion. Any ideas? Thanks.
  5. I ventured to the NJ brooks last weekend and made it to both Big Brook and Ramanessin Brook (Cretaceous, mix of Navesink and Mt. Laurel formations I believe). I found a few goblin and crow shark teeth, but need some help with ID for a few other finds. Thanks in advance for any help! Here are some detailed images of each. #1: concretion, or tooth? #2, definitely looks like a vertebra, but for a fish or shark? #3 also looks like a vert, or is it another concretion? #4: I fou

    Big Brook Whatsits!

    Hello all! After a long time away, I managed to get myself down to New Jersey to fossil hunt! Sadly, it was this last Friday, and over 95 degrees, so I was not as productive as I had hoped, and spent a lot of time sitting on my butt, boots in the water, just kind of vaguely looking around. (If anyone was suffering there with me friday, i was wearing a barfing t-rex shirt and was probably alarmingly pink in the face). However, I got a passable haul of shark teeth, belemnites, and quite a few dunnos! The larger one in matrix i suspect is a crustacean claw, the weird conical one maybe a weat

    Vertebrae clarification

    Hello, below are photos of some verts I found at Big Brook Park in Marlboro NJ. (Late cretaceous, Mount Laurel formation). I thought they were both ray verts, upon taking another look however I noticed there are some slight differences in their build. I wanted to see if anyone had any clarification for me. I've checked the usual sites, njfossils.net and njfossils.com, but I think I don't know how to interpret different features. I took photos of each face (anterior, posterior),and tops and bottoms (dorsal/ventral sides). Both were found, to my knowledge, in the Mount Laurel format

    Big Brook find

    Anyone have any ideas what this might be. Found in Big Brook, NJ 7/16/2021. Approximately 3/4” x 1/2”. Thanks
  9. Sorry for all the posts, but I'm trying to post some of the bizarre/unidentified pieces from my big brook fossil collection. Here is the best example of a fossil I've found a few of over the years. I assume it's some type of shelled cephalopod, but I have no idea what. Once again going to call @Trevor for his help, and hope I'm not being rude in doing so!

    new jersey unknowns

    After seeing all of the interesting things people had found in Big Brook NJ i looked through my unknowns and thought I would ask for help. If I had found the fossil in A and B in florida I would have called it worn dugong rib. However I dont recall dugong coming out of NJ therefore I dont really know what it is, ?wood? The next set are a couple of pieces that may be sandstone, or ironstone, or maybe fossil unknowns. they all have a mild c shape, oval shape with layered central depressions. they were similar enough for me to keep them but i dont even know if the all or any a
  11. The first is a large piece of petrified driftwood I found in Big Brook a couple years ago, the second is a fragment I am trying to ID. I noticed that the grain texture on the fragment looked like the wood grain on my piece of petrified wood, so I am trying to figure out if it might be petrified wood as well. Thanks! @Trevor
  12. Hello guys , I found some bones in big brook (Cretaceous fossiles), nj and I don't know if they are modern or ice age. I also added another strange fossil I found but can't id
  13. Just found this earlier today. Thought it was an enchodus until I noticed the conic root. I assume it's some type of aquatic reptile given the location and the similarity to mosasaur teeth I've found, but much more narrow than any mosasaur teeth I've found.
  14. I found both of these a couple days ago on my last trip to Big Brook in the same pan, and both have a very similar texture and appearance that leads me to believe they could have belonged to the same animal. I shared both via PM with @Trevor, who suggested the vertebra was likely Mosasaur (but that it might have a diagnostic ID), and that the bone was some type of marine reptile. Just thought I'd re-post here in case others might have any thoughts to add to that. Also, if either is worth taking in for a more diagnostic identification, where/to whom should I take them? I have heard there is a m

    Ghost Shrimp Crab Claw

    Hi does anyone know what this is. I have found a lot of crab claws in big brook but have never found one in matrix. Is this one?

    Deer tooth?

    Found in Big Brook. Looks like a tooth to me, but again is it fossil?
  17. Found several years ago in Big Brook, NJ. Any help IDing would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance. Hope it isn't considered rude to call people into a post this way, but going to call on @Trevor for his opinion.
  18. I've found small pieces of delicate jaw bone with teeth at big brook in the past, which I believe to be enchodus. This one looked like a much more heavy duty version of the same, so I was wondering if it might just be a larger specimen of the same species. I've photographed it next to one of the smaller fragments of jaw just for comparison. Thanks! @Trevor
  19. Hello! Would love to know about this bone (or we think it's bone) fragment found in Big Brook, NJ. Someone had suggested it was mammal and possible from a deer? Of course I would love to know if it's modern or an actual fossil. And would hope to at least identify the animal it came from. Description (if not clear in photos): It's about an inch long and has a very distinct point. It's relatively smooth with a texture on the underside of the point. An help identifying for a very curious family would be greatly appreciated!
  20. Wasn't sure if this was petrified wood, or just anthracite coal from another location that had gotten lost in the brook. Seems to have bark on one side, but wasn't sure what to make of it.

    Coral found in Big Brook, NJ

    I read recently that some reworked devonian corals can be found mixed in with the fossils at big brook, and I wanted to post this old find to get people's opinion. Kind of looks like a lot of devonian corals I've found, but I had just assumed it was cretaceous because of the location.
  22. Finally got out to Big Brook today. If I had 1$ for every belemnite found I’d be a wealthy man. Found some teeth along with Gastropod and mollusk impressions. One item that is toothy but not sharks tooth will need help identifying

    Mammal, Reptilian or Fish?

    Hello All, I had forgotten I had picked this up a Big Brook the other day. Definitely looks toothy. Nice size to it as it measures 1.5" (38mm). Not a sharks tooth. Perhaps Sawfish rostral tooth? Thanks!

    Who’s Tooth Is This

    Was down at Big Brook NJ today. Found a lot of the usual suspects. One though eludes my identification. Has enamel on it and is banded. Little bit larger than diameter of nickel.

    Possible coprolite? (Big Brook, NJ)

    Found this yesterday at Big Brook in New Jersey. Trying to figure out if it's just a rock with an interesting texture or a fossil. About 1×0.5×0.5 cm
