The physical properties of hydrogels are similar to those of biological tissues, with excellent biocompatibility. And the research in the field of medicine is becoming more and more in-depth. At the same time, higher requirements are also put forward for the performance of hydrogels. Achieving hydrogel bonding in a watery environment is challenging, but at the same time has great promise. The natural world often brings many inspirations to human production and scientific research. In nature, there are many organisms that, to resist the effects of the complex environment, usually adhere to the surface of the medium to ensure their safety and survival, thanks to the special secretion chemical composition and/or microstructure of the biological surface that achieves adhesion. To better understand the mechanism of action of underwater adhesive materials, this paper briefly summarizes the design strategies of underwater adhesives inspired by nature in recent years. This article discusses the adhesion mechanisms of animals, including mussels, barnacles, sandcastle worms, slugs, tree frogs, octopuses, and plants such as ivy and reptile tigers, as well as biomimetic strategies inspired by them. Finally, the shortcomings and future development trends of biomimetic underwater adhesion are also prospected.
