Aphid Terrapin's Planet

Icarus Prime is a small planet in close orbit to the star Zaphod XVII. Only one life form lives on the planet, a race of shape shifters who evolved from dealing with the incredible heat on a planet so close to a sun; this species can change the surface area of their bodies to dissipate heat, and what started as a method to survive the extreme temperature changes from day to night became an advantage in the wider universe as changing shape to reflect that of the species with whom you’re negotiating puts the other at ease; soon enough the residents of Icarus Prime became ambassadors & diplomats throughout all parts of the galaxy.
