Data of the allometry of claw sharpness and attachment performance for several insect species. This includes: 1. Body mass and claw tip diameter measurements for the four insects species Gromphadorhina portentosa, Nauphoeta cinerea, Carausius morosus, and Atta cephalotes. 2. Body mass, attachment force, and the surface nominal particle size on which the attachment forces were measured for Gromphadorhina portentosa and Atta cephalotes.
Only software for reading tabular data is required.
