Large 6" Eurypholis Fossil Fish With Shrimp - Lebanon

 
 
This is a beautifully preserved and quite large example of rare predatory fish, Eurypholis boissieri. This fish was quarried from the famous Upper Cretaceous aged, marine lagerstätte near Haqil, Lebanon. Outstanding dark colored preservation which contrasts nicely with the light colored limestone. There is also a small fossil shrimp naturally associated on the rock next to the dorsal fin. The rock has been stabilized with epoxy on the back side.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

The Upper Cretaceous, Lebonese lagerstätten yields some of the most exquisitely preserved fossil fish in the world. Over 80 genre are currently described, with many more still awaiting description. These beautiful fossils have been quarried near Byblos, Lebanon for well over a century and include sharks, rays, shrimp, ray-finned fishes and more.
