Big Brook Fish bones from the time of the dinosaurs.

Small Cretaceaus fish vertebrae are commonly screened up in the sediments at Big Brook. Though less showy than fossil teeth, they are no less interesting to fossil collectors wanting to get a glimpse of the fossil past.

Pleistocene deer teeth are an accidental find at Big Brook.

Although Big Brook is primarily known for it's Cretaceous fossils, other tidbits occasionally fall into the collector's screen. These deer teeth weathered out of a much more recent deposit from the stream banks. It is possible to find nearly anything when you are stream collecting. If anyone has a better ID on the teeth please post a response.Each is about one inch long.
