Limpet, a Sea Snail: The World's New Strongest Natural Material

Aside from the Spider-Silk, Scientists have found the new strongest natural material in a sea snail's teeth. Sorry Spider-man.

Or is this the real material that has similar properties of Wolverine's Adamantium ?
In the Marvel Universe, adamantium is a group of man-made metal alloys of varying durability, but all are nearly indestructible.

Scientists find this aquatic snail, Limpet's teeth, to be the new world's strongest natural material. They said that the structure of the Limpet's teeth can be reproduced to make high-performance material for cars, boats, and planes.
