However before I get started, let me tell you about a habitat and a life form that physics and chemistry totally forbid. I will talk about the asinine underwater scene in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (TPM). Just before the atrocious scene, the Gungan leader Boss Nass said this cheat line to Quin-Gonn Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, "Da speediest way to da Naboo is through da planet core!" I am NOT joking, Boss Nass really meant it, some TPM fans may try to move the goalposts on me by just saying that they went around the core in underwater caves below the entire crust of the planet, but even that falls flat on its face when placed under close scrutiny. Water is a lot less dense than rock; therefore, rock always sinks in water. Naboo is a rocky planet like Earth and has a rocky crust too, so logic and physics clearly state that the interior structure of Naboo sucks. If Colo Claw Fish are real which I believe chances are that they do actually exist, they would live above the basalt oceanic crust of their home world, NOT in the planet core as TPM would have us believe. Oceanic crust which is made of basalt is denser than continental crust which is made of granite, and that is exactly why it is oceanic crust, not continental crust that gets subducted in subduction zones. The Naboo planet core nonsense ignores the engine that drives habitable rocky planets, plate tectonics. Here is a picture of how Earth is structured. Although no other planet will be identical to Earth, every planet will obey the exact same laws of physics as Earth does. That is because everywhere in the cosmos, the same laws of physics are observed and obeyed!

The next video proves that Clover is an infant despite being TWICE the size of a Sando Aqua Monster.
Now I will go back to the topic of possible life forms to populate gas giants, I will return to what I discussed earlier when I mentioned that Carl Sagan and E.E. Salpeter at Cornell University came up with possible life for gas giants via some mathematical calculations. The Jovian "floaters" and "hunters" as illustrated by a scientific artist renowned for his vivid realism are seen in Carl Sagan's landmark book and series called Cosmos which came out in 1980. These life forms are discussed in the conclusion of Chapter/Episode 2 of Cosmos called One Voice In The Cosmic Fugue. They started out by talking about small life forms called "sinkers" which are eventually carried down and fried. Floaters are vast living balloons that are kilometers across; enormously larger than any Sando Aqua Monster ever would be, beings the size of cities. The floaters are neutrally buoyant in the atmospheres of gas giants and can consume organic molecules in the atmosphere or make their own food with sunlight. The floaters are imagined to be in vast herd for as far as the eye can see with camouflage patterns on their skin. Hunters are fast and maneuverable and feast on the floaters both for their organic molecules and store of pure hydrogen. There cannot be very many hunters because they would perish if they dine on all of the floaters. Hollow sinkers would evolve into the first floaters while self propelled floaters evolve into the first hunters.

Back Story: From Sunday March 21 to Sunday, August 8, 1999 for twenty weeks, my Orion II was taken away in an attempt to foist Star Wars onto me. In April 1999, I got fascinated with the Jupiter Floaters and Hunters and by the end of that month the people around me took away my floaters as part of the aforementioned effort to get me to like Star Wars by stripping me of all of my defenses. Then on Saturday, May 22, 1999, I saw TPM for the first time in theaters and my subconscious was upset with the underwater scene and this feeling was suppressed until Saturday, March 20, 2004. This having the Jupiter Floaters taken away only to be exposed to the Sando Aqua Monster is what really made me so angry. Had I not had my Jupiter Floaters and/or did not have my Orion II taken away, I would have taken Colo Claw Fish under my wing in my mind without even mentioning Sando Aqua Monsters, even in jest.
