As far as I know, moons that orbit a gas planet from a greater distance are less likely to be tidally locked, more likely to have a retrograde rotation but tend to have unstable orbits and axial tilts. So I would like to know what life forms such a world could sustain. What kind of climate and biomes would it have in which they could evolve? I'll specify that the moon in question does have the aforementioned conditions:
- It's not tidally locked
- It has a higher axial tilt than inner, tidally locked moons have but it's unstable (changing every few million years) due to the stabilizing force (its host planet) being further away).
- It has a retrograde rotation.
