Marine Fossils

A barnacle Archaeolepas redtenbacheri (Oppel), Kelheim. There is actually a colony of these little guys that was carried into the anoxic lagoon on an ammonite shell. They attach themselves to a hard substrate and wave their feet in the air to remove food particles from the water (modified from Barthel et. al., 1990).
