So how strong is the cephalopod beak roughly? It would seem that the relatively small beak would limit the size of the food consumed by the ceph. The arms can only hold an item for so long before tiring. Carnivorans (mammals) are my main interest, so I was just relating the relative attributes of the predators. Cephs are somewhat similar to felids, especially those with hooks on their arms and tentacles. However, where the cat would impliment a kill bite, what does the ceph do? I know some octopus are venonous, so I can see how it works for them, but larger predatory squid such as Dosidicus.... I am not so sure how they could tackle something their size or larger. I am really not the most well-informed ceph enthusiast, so bear with my errors and help me rectify them!
