The glue that has been discovered is from a beetle that lays its eggs on the asparagus spears. The eggs are so strongly “glued” that it would take a force 8,650 times higher than the weight of the eggs to pull them off. In fact, the eggs are said to bond completely with the asparagus. Pulling off the eggs brings some of the veggie skin with it. This glue could be examined further to explore human potential uses for it. Copying nature in this way is called biomimicry. The 2nd link below offers more examples of biomimicry.
