fossil footprint new jersey

This little reptile footprint is from an abandoned shale quarry in Norhtern New Jersey. I collected it a long time ago so the place it probably a housing development by now. Pity. I wish I drove around there more often to keep track of fresh building sites. Sometimes fossils are exposed for only short while. The track is just over one inch long. I would love to hear if anyone is still finding tracks in New Jersey.
