    Like mire2187 said, squids use their beaks to attack their prey. The Humboldt squid actually uses its beak, one of the hardest organic materials known, to sever the spinal cord of its prey, which ultimately paralyzes it. Their beaks are extremely sharp and stiff. Unlike other sea creatures’ anatomy, the beak of a squid does not contain any minerlals. Indigestable squid beaks are often found in the stomach of captured whales.
