The Emperor Shrimp (Zenopontonia rex, previously known as Periclimenes imperator) inhabits coral reefs and sandy areas. They live on a number of hosts including sea cucumbers and large sea slugs. Zenopontonia rex has a wide distribution across the Indo-Pacific and can be seen in different color forms.
We love macro and super macro photography and especially finding rare and special critters around
our island home. We do our best in identifying all critters on this website correctly; however, we
might make mistakes that can be present on this website.
Please keep in mind that this website is created for scuba divers, underwater photographers, and
everybody interested in marine animals. This website is created and organized from a diver’s and an
underwater photographer’s point of view. That’s why we primarily group animals together in a
meaningful way for divers and underwater photographers.
