The Europan Stargazer is the pre-morph stage of the Europan Squid, indigenous to Jupiter's moon Europa. Once ocean hatched the tiny Stargazers make their way to Europa's surface, burrowing through kilometres of glacial shelf with the aid of their strong claws and ramming tusks.
They will live their first 7 years on the moon's surface, feeding off Jupiter's radiation waves, only to make the long journey back to the ocean to morph into adulthood.
