Abstract: The individual toothed sucker rings of squid tentacles (highlighted in blue) provide additional gripping power during prey capture and handling. These rings comprise a nanoscale network of parallel tubular elements, as shown in the background image. The structural, mechanical, and biochemical properties of this wholly organic material are discussed in detail.
