Squids have gills just like fish. They have 3 hearts and have an ink sac. They use it as an escape mechanism to get away from predators.

The Big Fin Squid has 10 arms, that are all the same length. While all other types of squids have 8 arms and are all different lengths.

There are more than 300 species of squids. Some can glow in the dark. The Giant Squid has eyeballs that are the same size as a standard basketball. The Colossal Squid can be as long as 35 feet and weigh up to 1,000 pounds.

Squids swim tail first, not head first like most sea animals.
