Collection: Lobsters

Tropical marine lobsters are crustaceans belonging to the family Nephropidae, known for their striking colors and robust bodies. Found in warm waters around coral reefs and rocky substrates, these lobsters range in size from small species to large individuals like the spiny lobster (Panulirus spp.) and slipper lobster (Scyllaridae spp.). They are characterized by their long antennae, strong claws, and spiny exoskeletons, which provide defense against predators. Tropical marine lobsters are important predators and scavengers, feeding on a variety of marine organisms such as fish, mollusks, and crustaceans. They play a crucial role in maintaining ecosystem balance by controlling prey populations and contributing to nutrient cycling.
