Is this 100% natural fish fossil?

I saw this lebanon fish fossil (maybe Aipichtys sp?) On website, and i planning to buy this but i'm worried its head has made by man. its head looks little weired and unnatural. I never saw fish heads looks like this. Anyone knows about its right id or why it is fake?(or why it is natural one)

Thanks.

 

Sorry for bad quality pictures...

It’s hard to tell, but it does seem odd.

It looks like the one @Fossildude19 ID’d a little while ago in this thread. Lebanon has Diplomystus birdi. Your pictures or the fish seem to be compressed horizontally.

I think it is real, but that the head has been enhanced with paint. The color of the head looks somewhat redder than the rest of the skeleton.

It's definitely real. 

Looks like an Aipichthys sp. to me. 

Not sure about painting, but the fossil is definitely real. 

Nice fossil.

@oilshale may know...

For me looks real, but the fotos are not the best and i'm not an expert on fishes esp. from lebanon...
