Although they have not been as much represented in science fiction, it is likely that Uranians exhibit features much like Jovians, or perhaps they are creatures that are swimming in the chemical liquids on Uranus. Since the planet has a low temperature, it is likely Uranians may live on the cirrus clouds on Uranus. Other than Jupiter, Uranus has the most speculation of life on Jovian planets.
