Reptilians or Reptilian Humanoids are a purported species of shape-shifting aliens with reptile-like characteristics who occupy positions of power on Earth and manipulate humanity for their own benefit, often associated with conspiracies about the Illuminati.


The exact origin of conspiracy theories regarding reptilian humanoids is unknown. Professor of political science at Syracuse University Michael Barkun, the idea may have been inspired by stories written by pulp fiction author Robert E. Howard, including his 1929 story "The Shadow Kingdom" which contained references to anthropomorphic snake people. In 1967, Nebraska-based police officer Herbert Schirmer claimed to have been abducted by reptilian humanoid aliens.
