Barnacles, of the subphylum Crustacea kind, tend to look like this.
They look old, crusty, and live off rocks, large water bound animals (whales, mainly) and attach to rusty things in water, such as the anchor chain pictured above. Essentially, they bind themselves permanently to something, whether it is living or not.
On the whole, I can cope with the standard barnacle. You don't tend to see them moving, breathing, wriggling around or scaring the shit out of you.
I cannot cope with this, however.
Crab fishermen found it in Oxnard, near California, at the start of August.
On the outside, the surface appears to be sharp with clam-like shells covering the creatures that are protruding a tongue-like appendage coming out of them.
On the outside... who cares... what the fuck is this!
It's probably an endangered parasite so you can't kill the hell out of it, much like you can't with Katie Hopkins, Adam Sandler, Mark Wright, Jack Wilshire, anyone from TOWIE, anyone from Geordie Shore, anyone from Made In Chelsea, any Kardashian and anyone who seems to be called a 'celebrity' now with no discernible talent.
Let me know what the hell you think it is.
