Rename and edit

I have renamed this page, and edited the appropriate parts, because the word "octopis" is nonsensical; if there were such a word as "octopi", it would already be plural, hence the "s" on the end would be spurious. "Octopus" is in fact a Greek word, not Latin, so if you want to be pretentious the correct plural is "octopodes"; but if you don't want to be pretentious, the English plural "octopuses" is as good as any.

The article also says that the octopuses are "also known as squid". I haven't altered this as, having not seen any of the Madagascar films, I don't know whether this was an error on the characters' part or the article editor's; but if the latter, this bit should be removed as octopuses and squid are two different species; the former (as the name says) have eight tentacles, the latter only have six. — evilquoll (talk) 16:19, September 27, 2017 (UTC)
