What are the differences between an octopus and a squid?

Both sea creatures look the same to me. What are the differences between the two?

An octopus has a lot of tentacles. It produces some diffusing cloudy agents as a defence against predators like sharks. The eyes are of normal shape. Octopus is not a rare sea creature. It lives in shallow waters. A squid lives in deep sea. It has large eyes and some large tentacles. A squid can grow to huge sizes.

Octopus have 8 tenticals, squid have 8 and two arms. Octopus commonly are more friendly where squid can be elusive and hard to spot.
