cretaceous finds

Here are some of our finds from the cretaceous streams of New Jersey. Along with finding fossils from the cretaceous my father and I have also had luck finding pleistocene mammal teeth as well as Native American artifacts. We haven't visited cretaceous streams for a while as we have spent most of our time lately at Eocene and Miocene localities but hopefully we find time soon to collect at one.

You guys have been finding some cool stuff up there. In picture 9, I think the unidentified mammal tooth is from a llama. In pic 10, I believe that is a native american drill - much more rare than a point! thanks for sharing your hunts. Content Quality : 10 of 10

Fossilboy, DW was correct with the llama ID, but I can tell from the shape that it was from a male llama with tan colored fur. He was approx. 9 yrs old and walked with a limp due to a fight with a mean Ostrich - ha ha! Awesome finds! It's refreshing to some of that material since I'm so used to looking at a lot of Miocene and Paleocene lately. Are the baskets of teeth fromjust the recent hunts or all of your collection? Sure looks like a lot of teeth/fossils! Content Quality : 10 of 10

Daryl, Actually the teeth are the results of about 10 years of collecting.
