You may heard the term “Reptilian” in paranormal, cryptid, and alien conspiracy circles, but what are they, exactly?

While it may sound like a really strange and even unbelievable theory (but isn’t that the nature of conspiracy theories?), there are many who hold it as truth, with approximately 12 million Americans believing there is a conspiracy against humans perpetrated by the Reptilians.
