Shrilk is about as strong and tough as an aluminium alloy, but is only half as dense.   

Furthermore, it is cheap to make since chitin is easily made from shrimp shells, and biodegradable, so could be used for packaging and trash bags. And because it’s very strong and made from biological material, “it could be used to suture wounds that bear high loads, such as in hernia repair, or as a scaffold for tissue regeneration.”   

These human designers certainly did fine work. But they were still making a derivative work; the real brilliance is by the One who made the original. There are many more examples of such biomimetics (or biomimicry), including more ‘smart materials’—see Scientists copying nature (biomimetics).
