Emperor Shrimp - [Periclimenes Imperator]
Magic Crack, Lembeh Strait, Indonesia
Emperor Shrimp have a commensal symbiosis relationship with sea cucumbers and nudibranchs. Hitching a ride on their slow moving hosts, emperors search the sandy bottom for bits of food. They are fairly quick moving and at times appear to hop from the top to the bottom of a sea cucumber.

How archival are Metal Prints?
Images printed with the MetalPrints process will last for generations when displayed indoors and out of direct sunlight. Like any fine art print, MetalPrints should not be exposed to direct sunlight or high outdoor temperatures. MetalPrints have an additional benefit over giclee or photographic processes in that they are waterproof and have an ultra-hard scratch resistant coating. The archival value of a print should be judged not only by its resistance to degradation by U.V. light and ozone exposure, but also to moisture and surface damage. When these factors are brought into the equation, MetalPrints are an excellent way to preserve an image.
