So I need some help as I’m in the process of creating dragons and I was given the idea of using the material that limpet teeth are made of for dragon scales which in theory should make them extremely tough and durable but flexible enough to be used in a biological animal.
Now although I did some research on limpet teeth by reading a study done on them by the NCBI but I’m not sure if I’m missing information on anything that may impede a dragon from forming these scales without it impeding flight. Because at least from what I was able to gather limpet teeth use iron or an iron like mineral to mineralize their teeth giving it a strength that exceeds spider silk. But then I made the assumption that it could be considered lightweight and if given to a dragon could be made possible from the mineralization of scales with iron like minerals from their food and could still allow flight and not restrict mobility cause it’s flexible.
So at least in theory I think this should be plausible and not so biologically far fetched or anything like that but I really wanted to ask if this would be biologically plausible and if not what problems would this cause? (Of course ignoring the fact that Dragons are for the most part biologically impossible)
