A barnacle is an animal that lives in the sea. Many people don't think of a barnacle as an animal. That's because they never see it. The animal is hidden inside a shell.
A barnacle has a round body. It also has six pairs of legs. That's twelve legs! But it doesn't use its legs for walking. It uses them to eat with.
