The floater squid was one of the predatory subspecies of floaters found on the atmosphere of Yavin Prime. It was a tentacled gasbag which moved by ingesting the air of Yavin Prime and expelling it. It attacked anything, including floater sharks and starships. Nothing short of a turbolaser could injure it.
