Cephalopods

Definition:

Cephalopods (meaning "head foot") are mollusks with tentacles and a large head.

These soft-bodied invertebrates include animals like squid, octopuses and cuttlefish.

They are fast-moving carnivores that catch prey with their tentacles and poison it with a bite from beak-like jaws.

They move by squirting water through a siphon, a type of jet propulsion.

Many also squirt ink to help escape predators.
