Starfish fossil found on mountain in Turkey's South


A starfish fossil has been found at an altitude of 1,200 meters in the southern Turkish province of Mersin’s Bozyazı district, Doğan News Agency has reported.

The fossil appears to prove that the Taurus Mountains were under the sea millions of years ago.

The starfish fossil was discovered in a rock, with locals saying there are many fossils of barnacles in the vicinity.

The Taurus Mountains in southern Turkey divide the Mediterranean coastal region of the country from the Central Anatolian plateau. The system extends along a curve from the Lake Eğirdir in the west to the upper reaches of the Euphrates and Tigris rivers in the east.
