Squid move by stretching their tentacles out. They have a flap of skin that spreads out as they do this. Then they pull their legs together sharply and the flaps of skin push the water out of the way that makes them move forward. They do this continuously until they arrive to their destination.

Octopuses, or octopi, are predators. They hunt crabs, prawn, fish, and mollusks. However, in turn they are also hunted by sharks, dolphins, and other sea animals, so they are also prey. This means that they are not top predators, but somewhere in between.
