Humboldts are the only LandStriders to have retractable claws.Females
The colors shown are the two "extremes"
The top is the more common marking while the bottom is less common. However, there are a range of shades between those that are not shown.Males
The first depicts a lightweight male with more atypical markings. Keep in mind that this is just an example and not all light-weights will have these patterns.
The heavy-weight example has more typical male markings, but, once again, not all heavy-weights will have these markings.
There are a number of body styles and weight classes between these two, all of them are too subtle to recognize and therefore are not shown.
Blue markings on males differ greatly. It is not unusual to have them, nor is it to be without. Markings range from just a few small dots, to large spots to none at all. Markings always move laterally down the sides.
The last is an example of a pattern a male may display while preforming a mating ritual. This "dance" starts on land with just the male, if a female chooses him, they will move to the ocean to continue the dance together. Additional markings
Melanism is more common in LandStriders than in any other animal, however it is still a rare occurrence and the odds of seeing one are quite improbable. Both males and females can be melanistic but in the case of males, they would almost never display any other color. In other words, the chromatophores in melanistic Humboldts cannot change.
Hope this is helpful c:
If you have any questions just ask Humboldts are not open, do not make one
