Quick Trip to New Jersey
"Sifting in a brook"
Over the summer, I realized I would have a few free days between traveling. Extra days... What could I do with them?
One thought came to mind... “Fossil Hunt!” I then remembered I haven’t been to NJ in about a year, and the last time
I went I shot a bunch of photos to update the web page, then accidentally deleted them all. So, I decided to take a quick
trip to the Cretaceous of NJ. Even if I didn’t find much, I could take some pictures to update the old low-resolution photos
on the website.
I remembered a lesser-known spot that Wrong Way Rob and I found the prior year. I knew the place had potential, so I decided
to hunt that same spot. The fossils turned out to be far and few between, but what I did find made the trip worth it.
It was a decent Mosasaur tooth.
An afternoon at a quiet brook.
This is the largest shark tooth I found. It's a gobblin shark.
This is the Mosasaur tooth I found. It was just sitting out in the open waiting to be found.
Here is a detailed image of the Mosasaur conodont tooth.
