Crustacean

The barnacle is a cirripede crustacean.

It has a brown, almost black stalk and a grey nail. They live attached to the rocks in areas with usual undercurrents, so capturing them can be dangerous.

They are sold alive and exceptionally cooked. They are consumed boiled and generally lukewarm.
