Fossil Skate
Cyclobatis sp.
Upper Cretaceous
Lebanon

Cartilage does not preserve as well as bone; therefore fossil skates of any type are uncommon. Not a true stingray, but rather a skate, Cyclobatis is a distinctive and impressive genus from Lebanon. This species lacks a dorsal fin on the tail. Excellent preservation of the delicate structures of an adult individual is evident in this fine example.
Measures 14.25 x 10in; specimen measures 5.25in
