Barnacles in a Choir


Barnacles may not be the oceans most rare or beautiful creatures, but they are still interesting and even more so magnified. Check out this choir group of empty barnacle shells



Barnacles. They may not be everyone’s favorite type of sea life, but they are actually pretty interesting … when you aren’t stepping on them or having to scrape them off of a boat bottom. Here is a poem about them:

It might be fun, it might be neat

If you ate dinner with your feet.

You might think it’s strange, I know,

But for a barnacle, ’tis so.

It glues its head on something hard,

And builds a stony “house,” no yard.

This house has “doors.” It must be so:

So it can hide when tides are low.

Its house can’t move. That’s true….BUT

Be careful touching: IT CAN CUT!

It does not swim, but it’s no wimp.

It’s really sort of like a shrimp.

With jointed legs and feathered feet,

It kicks in food it likes to eat.

If you see a barnacle on some driftwood,

Please be respectful, as you should.
