Leaf Barnacles!
 
[Goose Barnacle]
 
Diet- They usually eat small plankton and other things but can eat crustaceans up to 1 cm long.
 
Anatomy- The leaf barnacle's body is covered with scales and sharp spikes.  They are brown in color.
 
 Interesting fact- Although most live up to about 5 year, leaf barnacles can live up to 20 year.  They also use to be called "goose barnacles" because in the 16th century, people claimed these barnacles turned into geese!
