Hehe, yes it is a java fern. I don't really know if it's really big for a java fern, as I haven't really had a proper look to see how big they actually get. Does it appear really big to you because of my LITTLE bristnenose, Bob, on it? Bob is only about 2 to 2 1/4 inches long. The wood it is on is about 7 inches long, and the plant itself, say from base of the rhizome to the highest part is about .... (getting out measuring tape) 9 inches.
