Abstract [en]

The dactyl plunger of Alpheus sp. was found to be a layered composite, with mineral-rich outer and inner layers and a chitin-rich middle layer of high porosity. The chitin-rich middle layer is itself composed of several porous chitin laminae. Modelling heat conduction through the plunger cross-section revealed that the chitin-rich layer is able to insulate heat and retard its progress through the material. Heat accumulates in the plunger after a series of successive snaps and as such, its thermally resistant design can be considered most useful under the conditions of successive snapping. The plunger has a concurrent mechanical damage-tolerant design with biogenic mineral layers, viscous (chitin–mineral) interfaces, energy-dissipating porous chitin, and sidewalls composed of ordered, layered aragonite. The snapping shrimp plunger has a design that may protect it and internal soft tissues from thermomechanical damage during plunger–socket compression prior to cavitation bubble release.
