Reptilians and Other Unmentionables

Part II

By John S. Carpenter, MSW, LCSW

The public generally expects aliens to appear different - not like a Hollywood hunk: “these cannot be true aliens!” It would be difficult to prove in psychological circles that these images are not projections of one’s wish fulfillment for a fatherly, handsome protector to rescue one from worldly troubles or a boring marriage. Others say that these encounters are with “guardian angels” rather than aliens. Because these beings have also been seen aboard UFOs with little grays, some researchers believe that they are either hybrids or holographic images for distraction, trickery, calming or reassurance. A few researchers believe the tall blondes might actually be supervising the little grays and that the grays may just be computerized androids, organic robots or a cloned subservient race of workers.

In the 1975 case of Travis Walton, he disrupts the “standard” procedure of the little grays who then leave the room. A tall blonde then enters and seems more in charge. Trusting these more human-appearing entities, he is recaptured. Even in the files of Leonard Stringfield’s crash-retrieval accounts is one allegedly retrieved body of unknown origin which is seven feet tall, with human features and shoulder-length blonde hair. Whatever or whoever they are, they keep surfacing worldwide in abduction cases with striking similarity.

As charming and kind as the tall blondes seem, the Reptilian brand of alien life form is [sometimes referred to as] a hideous, rude and aggressive type. It is difficult to imagine a higher-functioning seven-foot-tall lizard strolling into your bedroom. (The Japanese might like this breed due to their cinema craze over Godzilla!). I have close to ten of these odd cases; none of those subjects had ever heard of such a type. Yet there are again many similarities in description and behavior.


(1) Height: 6-8 feet tall, upright always

(2) Features: lizard-like scales, smooth texture

(3) Color: greenish to brownish

(4) Hands: four-finger claw with brown webbing

(5) Face: cross between human and snake

(6) Head: central ridge coming down from top of head to snout

(7) Chest: external “ribbing” may be visible

(8) Eyes: cat-like with vertical slit, gold iris

(9) Effect: repulsive, grotesque, disgusting

(10) Manner: intrusive, forceful, insensitive

(11) Behavior: intrudes and rapes

[Ed. Note: As more people have come forward with encounters involving reptilian appearing beings, reports of positive encounters involving them have increased.]

(12) Physical effect: large claw marks photographed

(13) Communication: none reported

[Ed. Note: As more people have gone public with their encounters, we now know they sometimes communicate with their human subjects telepathically.]

More psychological projections? Symbolic confabulations of evil or in - as initially implied in the Biblical account of the Garden of Eden? Cannot anyone imagine a “nice snake?” Is there always a sinister or deceptive manner about these creatures? Why do they seem to occur more frequently in certain geographic areas despite being reported independently? Where would the public have been able to read about these basically unpublished scoundrels? One of my cases sheepishly admits to having an incredible orgasm while being totally repulsed by the intruder’s grotesque appearance. Within two months, a second female from the same town reported independently the same type of Reptilian intruder, with the same surprising and embarrassing orgasmic response.

No crafts are typically seen; no communication [typically] occurs. The same scenario occurs over and over throughout my cases and those of other researchers - especially in Oklahoma and California. And researchers do not like talking about them publically; nobody can even picture how a seven-foot-tall lizard could have sex with a human female! (This weird stuff gets crammed into our gray baskets and buried!) But something is going on here that needs to be boldly studied more openly and publicly - especially among researchers. Patterns of similarity from sane humans are emerging despite our gray basket rituals of stuffing them away.


Then there is the insectoid/grasshopper/praying mantis type that seems to also oversee or direct activity in a supervisory role. Why would anyone imagine a large bug directing an abduction experience? Is this something we would hope for or desire to see? Subjects sense a higher level of wisdom and functioning in this type of entity. Whatever its purpose or origin, we certainly need further study. I encourage those of you who have either experienced such oddities or have researched these types to begin dumping out your gray baskets and sharing this bizarre data. Only in response to this article can we begin to get a better grasp on these unusual types of beings and how they may fit into the larger puzzle of the abduction phenomenon.

John Carpenter obtained a Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology from DePauw University, Greencastle, Indiana, and a master’s degree in Social Work, from Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri. He has had advanced training in Clinical Hypnosis in order to practice as a psychiatric therapist and hypnotherapist in Branson, Missouri. For over 32 years he has counseled people in Southwest Missouri for every kind of emotional problem imaginable.

His life-long curiosity in UFOs led to his volunteering his services for over 150 cases of possible UFO abduction. Using skillful interviewing techniques and thorough hypnotic investigation, he has collected amazing patterns of data which clearly depict a consistent and coherent scenario of extraterrestrial contact. He presented six papers at the prestigious MIT Abduction Study Conference in Boston in 1992. His published papers have brought him international recognition and speaking invitations on five continents. He has presented at conferences from Australia to England, on national and international radio, television, and film documentaries. He has created and produced 10 research DVDs since 1996.

Mr. Carpenter served as MUFON’s Director of Abduction Research from 1991 until 2000 and is a founding member of JAR: Journal For Abduction Encounter Research. John Carpenter is currently writing a book titled Invaded: Human Contact With Non-Human Beings and is available for Presentations Worldwide.
