Since the early 1990's, John Rhodes, the original CryptoHunter, has provided television & radio interviews, lectures, workshops, and media presentations to national and international audiences regarding his Terrestrial Reptoid Hypothesis.

This hypothesis claims that the beings that humanity has been calling "E.T.'s"  or "Aliens" are (in many cases) sightings of sentient Reptilian-Humanoid "Reptoid" beings that are native to Earth, or fellow "Terrans"

The Terrestrial Reptoid Hypothesis further contends that the ancestors of the reptoids (and possibly other life forms) retreated into underground caverns during environmental cataclysms long ago and there they continued to thrive and evolve into the sentient beings they appear to be today.

Their descendants, according to the hypothesis, have science and military representatives that are secretly interacting with human subjects, both civilian and military. 

They appear to be currently living in three areas:

1)  Under Earth's Surface, in Cavern-Cities (and villages) in remote (and sometimes local) geological locations (such as state parks and wilderness areas) - Both U.S. and Foreign.

2)  Off World

3)  In alternate vibrational states of reality (other dimensions).


According to Rhodes, people have reported interacting with half-human and half-reptile beings in various parts of the world since the dawn of mankind.  While most of these ancestral memories or mythologies are symbols of ancient religious self-identification, a few appear to be relating actual encounters, similar to those reported in the modern UFO culture.

While most reptiles are wild and shy away from humans, reptoids have exhibited a marked degree of intelligence and an intense curiosity of the humans they encounter. These are the most mysterious of all.

Because so few people are aware that the majority of life on and in Earth has yet to be encountered by mankind, when something unusual and intelligent like a reptoid is encountered, they are misidentified as ET's or "aliens."

Some of these elusive animal-beings have been encountered by accident, some of the intelligent ones appear to be encountering humans on purpose, in the middle of the night or in disguise by day for various undeterminable reasons.



UFO investigators from around the world are reporting an increase in reptoid sightings. From South, Central and North America to Japan, the scales of reality are being tilted. 

Luckily, no reptoid has ever physically attacked a human (that there is credible evidence of). In fact,  these mysterious ophidian creatures of the night have been known to display the same passive, aggressive and neutral behavioral patterns as humans.  This indicates that, even though our physiology and brain hard-wiring may be entirely different,  humans and reptoids share the same sentient spiritual polarization and potentials for good and evil.

From the ancient lands of the Aztecs, Maya and Pueblo Indians, to the Far Eastern shores of Asia and beyond, John Rhodes' treks into areas where few people dare stray from the path...where the majority of unknown animal or reptoid sightings occur.
