Is octopus a cartilage? Cartilage, which is also found in squid and octopus, is a type of protein which is a natural polymer. Cartilage is found in all living things, including sharks. In fact, sharks only have cartilage, no bones.
Does octopus have bone? They have a hydrostatic skeleton which allows them to keep body parts rigid. They actually have no bones, backbone or vertebral column and they utilize the incompressible nature of water to transmit force; thus they are considered an invertebrate.
Do squids have bones or cartilage?

How do octopuses move without bones? When octopuses crawl along the seabed, they contract lengthwise and crosswise muscles in their arms, elongating and shortening their arms in turn. They twist their arms by contracting sets of muscle fibres that wrap diagonally around them.
