Slann are amphibians, their bodies are thin with long limbs and webbed hands and feet. Their heads are large and frog-like with protruding eyes. Skin colors vary from green, blue, and sometimes yellow. In some areas they are mottled or carry black or dark red "tiger-stripes." Slann tribesmen, especially the Warriors or Braves as they are called, often wear war-paint as well as ritual or tribal tattoos. Paint colors follow traditional patterns which vary from tribe to tribe. Light blues, reds, and white are the most common pigments. Warbands do not use uniforms, but adopt a system of paint schemes with which they cover their faces and bodies. Red, yellow, white and black are the most commonly used colors, contrasting vividly with the green skin of the Slann themselves.
