4.6" Cretaceous Fossil Shark (Pararhinchodon) - Lebanon

 
This is a rare, fossil shark (likely Pararhinchodon) from the famous Upper Cretaceous marine deposits in Lebanon. Like most of the sharks in the Lebonese lagerstätten it is fairly small at 4.6" long but with exceptionally nice preservation. Sharks like this are one of the rarer components of the fauna in the formation, particularly ones this nice. It's nicely centered on a 8.8x7.1" piece of limestone with a second fish associated with it.

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.
