How do squids use their beak?



  1. 0 Votes

    Squids use their beak to kill and dismember their prey, usually first cutting the spinal cord of the fish they’re about the devour to paralyze it and not have to deal with it squirming around as they try to eat it. The beak works well because the tips of it are extremely hard and sharp, but the muscle with which the squid operates its deadly appendage is soft and pliant, flexible enough to bend the beak however it needs.
