Not that they couldn't bridge the gap (I think the inhumi do fly from Green
to Blue, despite the physical implausibility), but that they had no reason
to, since they had plenty of non-intelligent prey on Green and no desire for
intelligent prey (nor inkling that any prey existed on Blue, intelligent or
not).  Devolved inhumi would presumably be in the same position.
