Barnacles on Mornington Peninsula, Victoria

Barnacles belong to the crustaceans (shrimps, crabs, prawns, lobsters), are sessile suspension feeders and live at intertidal zones. They secrete a strong and hard glue to attach onto hard surfaces.

Love them because they are at beaches, hate them because they corrode ship bodies.
