Squidward Tentacles is a resident of Bikini Bottom who is an octopus.
Squidward likes to play the clarinet, but he's terrible at it. He also enjoys painting (which are not his best work either) and art. He likes dancing two (which is even worse than his art).
Squidward has had one pet in the series so far. He had a snail named Snelly. He had her so he could win a snail racing competition. At the race Snelly met SpongeBob's snail Gary and they fell in love.
