No, it would not be successfull on the sea floor and it certainly would not be successfull burrowing or living in the sea floor, although squid do sometimes prey on benthic organisms. The squid uses its tentacles to grab and eat its prey. The squid uses its muscles to pump through the water. And has adapted to see better with large eyes.
