The anatomy of a squid is quite interesting, they are symmetric along the length of their bodies. This allows them to easily move along in the water. The head of a squid is different than anything else you have seen that lives in the water. It is much larger than the body. It is flat but it has a large volume to it. The size and shape of it is going to vary depending on the species of squid you are referring to. A squid features eight arms that have suckers along the length of it. They also feature only two tentacles. Many people assume the arms are on the wrong end of the squid. This is because they assume the fin at the end of it is really the head. However, the head is located close to the arms and the tentacles.
