Neptunian with 3 Navels in a Tube-Top
Many Neptunians — even those with more than 3 navels — prefer to run around in tube-tops most of the time. After all, the planet’s temperatures can often top -200 degrees Celsius (roughly -328 degrees Fahrenheit), and Neptunians generally start sweating at around -240 degrees Celsius (-400 degrees Fahrenheit). A dip in a pool of ice methane or ammonia can only cool one down so much.
Just about every species of Neptunian has some adaptation for dealing with the swirling seas of slipping ices of nitrogen and water and helium and hydrogen. This gal’s hyper-extended double-pronged feet are an example. The creature’s distinctive teardrop-shaped eyes have developed in response to the fierceness of Neptune’s winds: over 1300 mph. You can tell that this is a young lass, both by the bristliness of her tail spikes and by the cute patterns on her tube-top (oh so popular with Neptunian tweens these days!). She’s just 12 years old this week!
(Of course, 12 Neptunian years x 60,190 Earth-days per Neptunian year = the equivalent of about 1,977 Earth-years — so I guess you’re only as young as you feel!)
