Squids are fast-swimming, predatory molluscs. They locate their prey by sight, and ensnare the victim by shooting out two of their tentacles armed with suckers or hooks. The prey is then killed by a bite from the squid's beak. Squid are fussy eaters, though, and often 'fillet' the meat from a fish in tiny bites and discard the rest. This is partly because their brain surrounds the throat, which makes it risky to swallow sharp or hard objects such as fish bones.
