These tree dwelling monkeys made up of shrimp, swing down from vines and pester passers by.

Shrimpanzees are a combination of shrimps with a chimpanzee-like form, abilities and behavior. They are one of the many Foodimals in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.

A Shrimpanzee resembles three shrimps put together to form a chimpanzee-like form, with one big shrimp as a body and two smaller shrimps for arms. The tail fins at the end of the shrimp arms acts as hands and the one on the main body acts as a single foot which it hops around with when not swinging on vines. Its head is the "puffed" out meat of the shrimp. It has small black beady eyes, two nostrils, and a mouth.

They swing, behave, and live in large troops like chimpanzees, inhabiting the treetops of the Foodimal Jungle. Like all apes, Shrimpanzees are able to learn and mimic certain things that interest them like Steve. Ironically, despite being based off Shrimps, Shrimpanzees cannot swim.



  • Due to the fact they are made of shrimps, they may be classified as "Crustaceans" or maybe humorously "Sea-Monkeys".
  • During the part in the ship building scene where Tim's Boat and Son's is launched, three can be seen standing on the railing saluting, somewhat in reference to naval sailors in 20th-century striped uniforms.
  • Shrimpanzees are the only Foodimals that parody two animals, as it was made from shrimp.
