This is an extremely impressive-looking fossil fish! It is a complete Eurypholis boisseri Viperfish from the Cretaceous Layers of Lebanon. Fossils from this region have become increasingly difficult to obtain due to political unrest, especially recently. This sleek specimen is a true Viperfish, one of the most voracious predatory fish in the fossil record, and easily one the most sought-after fossil fish from Lebanon. The large fish is extremely detailed and complete down to the individual rays of the fins and tail. The mouth is full of teeth that are fully natural and, frankly, unmistakable. The distinct fish is beautifully displayed on the large, rectangular plate of sublithographic limestone. This is a very collectible and displayable example of this wildly carniverous fossil fish from the Middle East.
