Caption: Barnacle shells. In their second larval stage, barnacles attach to a safe, protected surface, such as a rock, and surround themselves with hard, armoured plates. When they reach their adult form, they grow by adding more material to the ends of these plates. Barnacles are classified as Cirripedia (meaning 'curl-footed'), an infraclass within the class Maxillopoda.
