In Part I of this series  we described the structure of the biopolymer interlayers found in the shell of the mollusk Haliotis rufescens (the red abalone). There we described how the layers can be viewed as a viscoelastic composite reinforced by a network of chitin fibrils arranged in an often nearly unidirectional architecture. Mechanical testing documented the response to tensile testing of layers removed via demineralization. Herein in Part II we describe a general viscoelasticdoi:10.2298/tam1403213l fatcat:7a3cgyq3sbd6lnyqxqnrqmzpwu
