Slipper lobster are a family of achelate (clawless), decapod crusaceans, found in all warm oceans and seas. Despite their name, they are not true lobsters, but are more closely related to the spiny lobster and furry lobster. Slipper lobster are instantly recognisable by their enlarged antennae, which project forward from the head as wide plates.
