Almost nothing is described about the Jovian biology other than noting that they have radial symmetry and are equipped with tentacles. They also possess sense organs directly responsible for detecting mass. Since substances of low specific mass are transparent to them, they are able to see through the dense Jovian atmosphere as well as [[Human]]s see through Earth air. Oxygen is lethal to them, and they may also drown if submerged in ammonia, which is known to form lakes in the vast islands where the Jovians build their mostly-underground cities. A very populous planet, even small cities are home to up to ten millions of them.

==History==
For 25 years they have established radio contact with Human settlers on Ganymede, initially believing the settlers to be creatures similar to them. It is speculated that because of Jupiter's huge size, new civilizations of their own species were still being discovered via radio contact on many points of the planet, hence their natural conclusion that the Ganymedeans would be members of the Jovian race too. As soon as they realize that they're actually dealing with non-Jovians, they immediately cut off all contact, feeling sudden repulsion and hostility towards humanity and the fact that they had been making diplomacy with "lower animals". A trio of sapient robots was later sent down to the planet in hopes of restoring contact and diplomacy with the Jovians.
