Jupiter has many great features for my alien, Nyda. Nyda is a producer so he takes sunlight from the sun and makes his own food within his body. He has 4 eyes that can catch light from all 4 moons on Jupiter. Nyda does not have a mouth because he does not have to eat food provided by the planet. He lives on Jupiter because that planet has 4 moons, enough to reflect light for him to have to produce his own food. He has those 4 black horns on his head to get rid of unneeded wastes. He has no predators. He has very thick skin to protect him from the cold weather. He has several skin tones to help absorb and reflect heat. He weighs 11.8 pounds so he can be anchored down on Jupiter. Nyda may look odd here but out on Jupiter he fits right in!
