Barnacles

Barnacles are crustaceans and are closely related to prawns. In their juvenile stage they drift in the ocean as larvae. When washed onto the shore, they firmly cement themselves to the rocks, building their limy homes around themselves. Barnacles are filter- feeders, opening their shell plates when covered by water and collecting food particles with their hairy feet.
