Tohul is a hot terrestrial world with a dense wet atmosphere which supports a relatively rich biota. Multicelluar creatures can be found in the photic zone at the top of the atmosphere, grazing on the skyplankton; also in the lower, dense atmosphere feeding on detritus, saprophytes and chemotrophs. Surface creatures and subsurface creatures are also common, except in the central cyclone belt.
