Similar concept, & on Jupiter too, in Poul Andersen’s excellent “Call Me Joe”. I linked a comic book adaptation of it recently.

Perhaps the best known story of humans transforming to locally suitable forms for colonization is James Blish’s “Surface Tension”. I think I’ve linked at least its MP3 sometime in the past.

Thanks Tinkoo,

This is the first story that I’ve come across where humans transform to local life forms, but apparently it is more common than I thought. I’ll definitely check out your links, especially “Surface Tension.”
