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?
