Data from: Variation in setal micromechanics and performance of two gecko

Travis J. Hagey, Jonathan B. Puthoff, Madisen Holbrook, Luke J. Harmon, Autumn Kellar & Kellar Autumn
Biomechanical models of the gecko adhesive system typically focus on setal mechanics from a single gecko species, Gekko gecko. In this study, we compared the predictions from three mathematical models with experimental observations considering an additional gecko species Phelsuma grandis, to quantify interspecific variation in setal micromechanics. We also considered the accuracy of our three focal models: the frictional adhesion model, work of detachment model, and the effective modulus model. Lastly, we report a novel...
