That's bloody amazing! Makes me wonder about a lot of things!  :huh:

I always thought that gears were an amazing human invention yet nature has already created it.

Do we now have to consider that people like Aristotle and Da Vinci had seen gears and other inventions in nature and simply replicated it?

They could quite well have done.
