  1. Lebanon Shrimp or Lobster?

    This was labeled to be a Carpopenaeus sp. shrimp from Lebanon. I had a sneaking suspicion that it may not actually be a shrimp, but perhaps a lobster because of what appears to be claws so I purchased it. I was looking for second opinions on this fossil and will try to update with a closer look when it comes in (shipping is overseas and will take a while though).
  2. Hakel Fish Info?

    Does anyone have a good resource about Lebanese fish fossils from Hakel? I have some I would like to learn more about. Looking for images and citations to beef up my catalog info on them. Thanks in advance all!
  3. Is it the same Lebanon fish?

    Hello, could you tell me if the two fish, I suppose Lebanon needle fish are the same species and the exactly name of them? In lenght are about 15 cm (first picture) and 8 cm (second picture) Many thanks in advance...

  9. Hi all, a friend recently offered an interesting fossil to me - an octopus from Lebanon. Now, as some of you might know - Lebanon does have octopus fossils, though they are very rare. This fella here doesn't look outright fake at first glance, but I don't know if he's real either. I don't know many Lebanese experts, but when I showed it to two, here's what I was told. Expert A - It's real, but the tentacles are painted Expert B - It's just a squid painted to look like an octopus Now, painted tentacles is annoying, but at least it would be a real octopus. But a squid painted to look like one is a big no-no. What are your thoughts on this guy?
  10. Hi all, I just acquired several Lebanese fossils that are very chalky. The fossils themselves are even slightly covered in a fine white dust. They also feel as though they could easily be damaged. Does anyone have any tips for cleaning of Lebanese fossils? Can I rinse them lightly with water? Should I also use a sealant on them? Thank you.
  11. Carpopenaeus callirostis

    A small shrimp
  12. Fossil Or Just Minerals

    Hello, Found this fossil in the mountains of Lebanon - Middle East. 2,000m altitude I asked around and they told me that its just a mineral arrangement. However, I am pretty sure that it's was a living creature. To note that I found it in a limestone mountain. It has indeed a particular cone shaped rock with a central stem (check attached photos) It could be either a fossilized pine or reed Any thoughts?
  13. From the album Vertebrates

    Akromystax tilmachiton Poyato-Ariza & Wenz, 2005 Upper Cretaceous en Namoura Lebanon A newly described Pycnodont from Lebanon: http://www.jstor.org/discover/10.2307/4524415?uid=3737864&uid=2129&uid=2&uid=70&uid=4&sid=21101154122731
  14. Mount Lebanon, Near Aley

    So during a recent construction project Near Aley, Mount lebanon, Lebanon, I noticed that interesting dark patches where found in the brown rocks. By chance, one of the workers was trying to break down one big stone, to expose what looked like a fish imprint to me. The attached image shows both sides of the hammered down rock. I have no idea what and how old this sample is, so any help on the issue is very welcomed. I also don't understand what is the distinct white and shiny line which passes through the shown sample. Additional info: - Altitude of the area is roughly 660 m (sea level) - The depth at which this sample was found was approximately 10-12 m from the original surface (may be 9-10 m into the bedrock) - There is a water spring in our land, so underground water is plenty - I have noticed that many construction sites in the area have such dark patches in the excavated stones - I have checked wikipedia and google for any history of paleo excavation in the area, non is mentioned (only two sites near jbeil, which are almost 50 km north, at almost half the altitude). - I have found other samples, some look like a teapot, others might resemble a deformed octopus, etc...
