I really like these, but I have a question about the Albino one. Albinism means that it's skin would lack color, therefor wouldn't it not be able to change to have the blood colored scales? I was wondering if I could enter the contest for it, but come up with a way to imitate the blood without the scales changing, such as it finding some sort or dye or paint-like something instead?
Yeah, that was one of the loopholes I had when designing these ;; I'm not too knowledgeable about biology and stuff, but I was thinking that they have layers of skin cells, their 'normal' ones, being the dull black colours, and a new, fictional type of cells that are completely translucent and are responsible for colour changes. The albino one lacks the pigments in the normal cells, but the 'new cells' are left intact, meaning it can imitate other colours, but they white skin won't go away. That way, I guess the albino one isn't a 'true' albino? XD
Alternatively, your idea is quite interesting! I kinda get the idea that he's self-conscience about his colour and not being able to change it, so he has to substitute something else :0
(Sorry for huge wall of text ^^" I'm glad you like the species though!)
