  1. Hi folks, Had this come up in my sifter at Ramanessin brook, i'm thinking to ID it as a Plesiosaur tooth due to the curvature of the tooth and the oval indent in the root, would love some thoughts from experts

    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

    NJ Paleocene ID Help

    This past weekend I had the chance to collect at an exposure of the Paleocene Vincentown Formation in New Jersey. The trip was a lot of fun and a number of really cool fossils were found. I have been able to identify most of my finds except for these two mystery fossils. I recognize the shark tooth as a sand tiger but I was hoping someone might know which sand tiger it is. I saw online that someone listed Carcharias samhammeri in the Vincentown but I am not an expert on shark teeth so I am not sure if that is what this tooth is. Any help is greatly appreciated! #1- bryozoan?

    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

    Another NJ Tooth!

    Hello once again! Here’s a find I’m particularly excited about, a new tooth! I found it while perusing gravel banks at Ramenessin. It’s tiny! 1 cm at the most. It does have striations, though they were difficult to capture with my camera. It’s also split in half. One carinae as well. I’m hoping this is of the marine reptile variety, guessing croc due to the size. I dabbled with the idea of pachyrhizodus as well, although I think the striations rule that out? Any insight is much appreciated, eager to ID this one!

    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?

    Ratfish?

    Hello everybody, long time no see! Went to Ramenessin, NJ today to do some hunting and found this. It’s about 1 cm across at its widest point. The texture on the bottom (or top?) reminds me of a ratfish. Wondering if anybody can positively ID this for me! Thank you!

    Deer tooth?

    Found in Big Brook. Looks like a tooth to me, but again is it fossil?

    South Jersey Creek Find

    Hey all, I found this in a South Jersey creek gravel bed. The particular spot is in the Navesink bedrock formation, but I'm unsure of how exposed it is (if at all.) I haven't found much in the way of fossils in this particular spot except a possible burrow and a possible oyster shell. I initially thought it was an odd looking concretion, but I cleaned it up and had second thoughts. It's extremely porous (passed the tongue test), which made me think bone. It's also very heavy. Please let me know if more pictures or information would help. Thank you in advance!
  11. Hey everyone, So, I live in Morris County and usually, I fossil hunt at Big Brook and Shark River. I am trying to expand my horizons a bit during the summer and have been looking for new places to check out. One example is trilobite ridge but I haven't heard anything new about it in about a decade so I am unsure if it is still accessible. In any event, would anyone have any suggestions for other fossil hunting spots within the North Jersey area? (or close by). Thank you!
  12. Found this on the beach of Wildwood Crest, NJ this week. Interested in what the item is but also interested in what appears to be a bite impression. Not much to go on but any information or thoughts are appreciated. Kind regards, Sean

    Big brook toe bone?

    Just dug from Big Brook. Think it's definitely a bone...but is it modern or fossil?
  14. We managed to get out to the NJ brooks today after two weeks of heavy rains, we wanted to try out a new spot we hadn't been to before in the brook and the results did not disappoint! We wound up with a good assortment of quality specimens including many teeth taking their place in our collection as the highest quality/largest - total tripmakers! We were immediately met by a doe on the trail down, Luck? one may think After we picked a suitable spot to settle in and sift, this came up in the first scoop Immediately followed by this
  15. Spent another afternoon on the Ramanessin yesterday. Walked in with a club from South Jersey who piled in at the big gravel bar with all the downed trees a little below the dam, including a relatively new addition of a tulip tree that is still covered in leaves. Later, I also met a member of a topographical survey team who was walking the stream bed and ran into a younger local who I have seen there several times previously. Overall a pretty busy day and much cloudier and cooler than last Saturday. (30 degree difference week over week) Unfortunately the trip was more of a heartbrea
  16. Despite the heat I managed to get a solo trip down to the Ramanessin yesterday afternoon. I was hoping after the rains this past week things might be a little stirred up. On my last post I joked about the tiny super worn mosasaur tooth breaking the curse... and I am happy to report I was right. Little bit of everything this trip (small squares are 1/4 inch): Big mosasaur tooth, worn, but it made me very happy Pretty nice little lobster/shrimp Partial ratfish plate Coral/sponge? Crow shark t
  17. I'm assuming this is a fish or ray tooth, what type is it? Found at Big Brook (little bigger than a finger nail) Found this tooth at Big Brook and was wondering what type of tooth this is?
  18. Hello, I was going through my “toss” pile today from my local haunt and I noticed something black and shiny peeking out from one. So, I decided to (for the first time ever) break a find open. I was glad I did because I was pleased to find a tooth! No idea what it is, since it is still very much still in the material I found it in and I can’t match it to something I’ve found before. This is new territory for me and so I’m looking for advice. Should I leave it as is or try to remove it?

    Big Brook Invertebrate ID Help

    I recently found this really cool double Agerostera mesenterica at Big Brook in New Jersey (Late Cretaceous; Navesink Formation). After I finished cleaning the fossil, I noticed these tiny encrusters on the larger of the two oysters. They don't look like your typical Serpula tube worm trace. I am not quite sure what they are. They almost have the shape of being some other type of bivalve. Any help is greatly appreciated. Some close-up photos using my digital microscope

    NJ Cretaceous ID Help

    Hello, I need some help identifying the owner of my bone collection. Long story short, I have been obessed with collecting some reptile like fossil bones in various states of preservation from my local beach over the last year. I have probably about 30 in total. Each day, I'd go back down to the site to see what had rolled in. Most are small "finger like" bits but, these are my favorites of the bunch. Anyway please have a look and I would be thrilled if someone might help to id and let me know if I have discovered something cool here. I am in a nj coastal cretaceous area.
  21. I had a great day yesterday collecting at the Ramanessin Brook with @Jeffrey P and @frankh8147 and members of the DVPS. The weather was a bit overcast but the iffy weather certainly did not take away from the great accumulation of finds. From what I could tell everyone seemed to find something special, with the find of the day going to Frank. I started out finding a bunch of shark teeth and slowly transitioned to finding more fish teeth and other goodies from the brook. I seem to have a penchant for finding crustacean claws as this is the second trip in a row on which I have found a crustacean

    Mammal Jaw!!!!!!

    So guys basically my neighbor’s friend has big brook running through their backyard, and they found this recently. They are pretty young, and at first they told me they found a dinosaur jaw or bone or something. So I was real skeptical and expecting it to be a deer jaw. But they sent me a picture, and though not a dinosaur jaw, it’s not quite a deer jaw! It seems pretty big, has a few molars still intact, and has the shape of a bison jaw but I’m not sure. Please help me identify it! This is a picture of it in my neighbor’s friend’s hand so I don’t know the exact size but I will ask.

    Strange Big Brook NJ Bone? Coral?

    Hi again, hoping this time I have something. From Big Brook, NJ. I cannot find anything like it on extensive research. It's not modern bone. Sorry for the US quarter as I have temp misplaced my tape measure. The black smooth area on the top in the first pic is concave but not uniformly so. In one of the photos I put a pebble in there to try to show some depth it its not noticeable. Thanks again for any help!

    Big Brook NJ Tooth??

    Hi, found this at Big Brook NJ and trying to determine if it's possible a Mosasaur or Croc tooth or stone/other. It's about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2" long. Thanks for any info!
  25. Hey everyone, this is kind of a 2 in 1 post, but I thought it was appropriate. Spring is coming, vaccines are being rolled out, and while we are nowhere near the finish line, I am feeling hopeful for Spring and last week (at least up here in North Jersey), the weather gave me a sense of renewal! Anyways, I haven't been to Big Brook in awhile (last fall?), primarily due to my work schedule but my first question involves how things are going over there? I know that the area remains to be popular, but I am not sure if there has been a surge in activity over the summer and
