About the slipper lobster

  • The slipper lobster is quite impressive: it grows up to 45 cm long and is colored in shades of light brown until brown-red.
  • One finds it rarely on open surfaces. The nocturnal lobster is shy and prefers to hide. Can you discover it anyway?
  • Despite its size, the slipper lobster can be really fast! In case of danger it hits its tail fan under the abdomen and catapults itself backwards, away from the source of danger.
