Just thought everyone might enjoy some 100% natural (NOT PAINTED like all of the others on the net!) fossil cephalopod images of Cretaceous Paloe-octopus fossils from Lebanon. The soft tissue preservation is astounding!

Enjoy

Michael

Welcome back Michael.

Nice pictures indeed. Do you have any idea what the structures are inside the mantle? It almost looks as if there is a conical gladius in there.

Cheers!
