  • Barnacles, crustaceans under cones

    Barnacles on rocks.

    The St. Lawrence is home to six species of this small crustacean encased in a calcareous cone.

    In adulthood, barnacles attach themselves to rocks in shallow water. Sometimes, they encrust ship’s hulls, buoys, wharves and even some marine animals, like the humpback whale.

    Barnacles feed by capturing the particles suspended in water with their thin, feathery limbs in a sort of ballet-like motion.

  • Hermit crab, a stowaway

    Hermit crab on the beach.

    Because this crustacean’s abdomen is soft and vulnerable, the hermit crab slips into empty gastropod shells it salvages on its way. It attaches itself to the shell with its curved back legs and chooses a new shell when it grows.

    Like lobsters, hermit crabs can five pairs of legs, one of which has a pair of claws.
