||Ceph`a*lop"o*da (?), n. pl. [NL.,
gr. Gr. kefalh` head + -poda: cf. F.
céphalopode.] (Zoöl.) The highest
class of Mollusca.
&fist; They have, around the front of the head, a group of
elongated muscular arms, which are usually furnished with
prehensile suckers or hooks. The head is highly developed, with
large, well organized eyes and ears, and usually with a
cartilaginous brain case. The higher forms, as the cuttlefishes,
squids, and octopi, swim rapidly by ejecting a jet of water from
the tubular siphon beneath the head. They have a pair of powerful
horny jaws shaped like a parrot's beak, and a bag of inklike
fluid which they can eject from the siphon, thus clouding the
water in order to escape from their enemies. They are divided
into two orders, the Dibranchiata, having two gills and eight or
ten sucker-bearing arms, and the Tetrabranchiata, with four gills
and numerous arms without suckers. The latter are all extinct
except the Nautilus. See Octopus, Squid,
