This is a very nice specimen of a fossil shrimp. This is Carpopenaeus callirostris from the Cretaceous of Lebanon. Due to political unrest, specimens from this site are difficult to obtain. This shrimp is well preserved and exhibits fine detail - the head, segmented body, and tail of the shrimp are clearly defined. Even the long legs, pointed rostrum, and eye are quite evident (some darkening for contrast). The large fossil is wonderfully showcased and beautifully displayed on the rectangular block of sublithographic limestone. This is a very large example of a complete Carpopenaeus shrimp from the Middle East.
