Gooseneck Barnacle (Pollicipes polymerus)
Order: Thoracica, Family: Scalpellidae
The gooseneck barnacle is found from the southern region of Alaska to Baja, California. The shell, or capitulum, of the gooseneck barnacle grows to be about two inches long. It is made up of small plates, which enclose its soft body. Inside the shell, the barnacle primarily consists of long segmented legs, intestines and stomach. The gonads are held within the stalk. The stalk also contains the gland that is used to produce the adhesive that allows barnacles to attach to rocks so well.
