Do Aliens Exist? Three Prominent Alien Types Exposed!
While we don’t actually know if aliens exist, reports by abductees have generated enough physical descriptions and details of characteristics regarding these alien beings that, over time, it has become clear that there were, at least, three different species. Names were given to each type in order to categorize and simplify the discussion.
Three Types of Aliens Species
- The greys
- The reptilians
- The Nordics
Below you will find a brief description of each alien species followed by a more detailed explanation for each. You will also find information about accounts of alien abductions and learn why the number of alien believers is rapidly growing.
Brief Description of Each Alien Species
The grey alien is typically described as being a very thin being with an oversized head (compared to its body size). They stand 3 ½ to 6 feet tall and weigh anywhere from 50 to 90 pounds.
The Earth's reptoid’s facial features differ somewhat from the typical, more widely-known grey aliens. With a slightly cone-like head, they appear to have bony ridges that begin at the forehead and continue all the way down the back of the skull. There are slits in the nasal area, presumably for breathing, as well as slits where you would expect ears to be found.
Described as humanoid extraterrestrials, the Nordics, also called blondes, have a very human-like appearance and stand anywhere from 5½ to 7 feet tall. In every relevant abductee account, the Nordics always have blonde hair with light eyes. The most typical shade of eye color described is blue, however, reports have also described violet, pink, red, purple, and green eyes. Known to be in great physical shape and extremely attractive to humans.
1. A Description of Grey Aliens
The most well-known of alien types, the grey alien is typically described as being a very thin being with an oversized head (compared to its body size). They stand 3 ½ to 6 feet tall and weigh anywhere from 50 to 90 pounds.
Hollywood and science fiction novels have done a very good job of portraying the grey’s appearance: a large, bulbous forehead with bulging, unblinking eyes. Its skin is pale gray and wrinkly. Those who have encountered this type of alien characterize their skin as having the texture of an ocean mammal, like a dolphin or a whale. There are no ears or indentations on the sides of the head where we expect something that allows for hearing to be located. Some accounts have described them as having three or four webbed fingers and similarly webbed feet.
The grey's primary method of communication seems to be through telepathy. Alien encounter stories indicate that most people could hear them speaking in their mind and that there was a sense of knowing what the grey was communicating, although no sound was coming from the alien’s mouth.
Origin of the Greys
Theories about where the greys came from are based on a star map drawn by Betty Hill, who was reportedly abducted by greys and then later, under hypnosis, drew a map of what she had seen. After analyzing this information, UFO researcher Marjorie Fish hypothesized that the grey aliens’ home base is a pair of stars about 220 trillion miles away from Earth known as Zeta Reticuli. Based on this theory, greys are sometimes called the Zeta Reticulans or Zeta Reticuli aliens.
The Grey Alien Agenda
Based on abductee reports, for the most part, the greys seem to be scientific observers interested in the study of other life forms in the universe. They perform tests and medical evaluations upon their human subjects and then free them.
From various encounter stories, it has also been postulated that the grey alien race is dying due to the fact that they were originally cloned by another race of aliens called the reptilians. The reptilians apparently created the greys and forced them into servitude, that is, until the grey aliens formed a rebellion and escaped to wander the universe, thus finding their way to planet Earth. Conspiracy theorists also believe that the greys were the ones originally found in Roswell, New Mexico and that this species made an agreement with the U.S. government. They offered advanced technology in exchange for the ability to be able to experiment with human subjects through genetic engineering to prevent the extinction of their race. This theory explains why the majority of alien encounter stories are usually about the grey alien race.
I saw humanoid creatures in black uniforms. I screamed 'They’re going to capture us!' and ran back to the car and drove home.— Barney Hill, UFO witness
2. A Description of the Reptilian Aliens
There are numerous theories about another race of aliens known as the reptilians. One is that the reptilian race comes from the constellation of Draco, while another posits that ancient astronauts seeded Earth with reptilian aliens, which explains why there has been a subset of the species dwelling here since prehistoric times.
Only about 20% of alien abductees describe reptilian encounters, but according to some of these reports, earth-dwelling reptilian beings (or reptoids) are humanoid and stand about six to nine feet tall. Their human-like bodies are very muscular, with long arms and legs, three long fingers, and one thumb on each hand. Their skin has dark green or brown scales. According to some reports, they also have tails.
The Earth's reptoid’s facial features differ somewhat from the typical, more widely-known grey aliens. With a slightly cone-like head, they appear to have bony ridges that begin at the forehead and continue all the way down the back of the skull. There are slits in the nasal area, presumably for breathing, as well as slits where you would expect ears to be found. There are also two different descriptions of eyes—both say the eyes are large, however, some say they are black with vertically slitted pupils (think lizards and snakes), while others describe white eyes with flaming slits for pupils.
Origins of the Reptilians
The reptilian aliens that are alleged to originate from Draco differ from the reptoids, their earth-dwelling relatives. While their height is also between six and nine feet, this alien species also has wings that span six to seven feet made of bone covered with scales. Their body structure is similar to that of the earth reptilian, except they have been seen with horns on their head that sometimes continue along the length of the spine. Certainly, this description could easily fit the myths about dragons and winged gods found in ancient Chinese, Greek, and Indian texts.
Ancient Texts About Reptilians: Chinese, Greek, Indian, and the Americas
Chinese: In Chinese mythology, dragons had the ability to shapeshift into human form. Their kings were the dragon rulers of the four seas—north, south, east, and west—who, just as in stories about reptilians, would attack the people without provocation. Temples of honor were built to appease these kings.
Greek: The first king of Athens was Cecrops I, who many said was half snake. In the Pergamum temple, images of men with the legs of serpents are prevalent. The Greek god of the north wind was Boreas, and he was described as having wings and legs made of serpents.
India: Indian scriptures cite the legend of the Naga, who were a reptilian people that lived underground and communicated with humans. They also referred to them as the Sarpa.
The Americas: The Toltec Mayan god Gucumatz was described as a "serpent of wisdom" who enlightened humankind. His Aztec counterpart was named Quetzalcoatl. In the Yucatan, he is called Kukulcan. The Hopi refer to a race of reptoids called the Sheti, or "Snake-Brothers," who live underground. The Cherokee and other Native American peoples also refer to reptoid races. In pre-Columbian mythology, from Colombia, Bachue (the primordial woman) transformed into a big snake. She is sometimes called the "Celestial Snake" (Serpiente Celestial).
The Reptilian Agenda
People who claim to have been abducted by reptilians claim that this alien type uses fear and force to coerce and intimidate their human captives. Conspiracy theories abound that the reptilian is a malevolent group seeking dominion over not only our world but other worlds all around the universe and that they cloned grey aliens as a slave race and now plan to do the same to humans. Believers in this theory claim that the reptilians live in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th universal dimensions, where they feed on negative energy and attempt to cause conflict in our world.
David Icke, a British writer, believes that reptilians have interbred with humans to form a sort of “elite” class that is now in power and has infiltrated all governments, businesses, banking, and even royal families. These alien-humans are apparently able to shape-shift to hide their true identity. Their agenda is to take over the planet by causing worldwide conflict, so as to feed off the negative energy supplied by human misery and occupation, as well as to corrupt humanity with their evil intentions. The earth-dwelling reptoids supposedly dwell deep underground and in above-ground caves. They work toward interrupting the Draco reptilian’s evil agenda to take over this world.
That night I awoke in my energy body laying beside a reptilian being on a bed with two greys mentally holding me down. I broke lose and attacked, I tried to kill the bastard with my bare hands, then I was back in my physical body feeling the reptilian slam my energy body's head into a wall, I laughed and taunted him. Suddenly my energy body came back, I was whole, elated and triumphant.— Dana, (UFOChick on Tumblr) UFO researcher
3. Description of Nordic Aliens (a.k.a. Blonde Aliens)
Described as humanoid extraterrestrials, the Nordics, also called blondes, have a very human-like appearance and stand anywhere from 5½ to 7 feet tall.
In every relevant abductee account, the Nordics always have blonde hair with light eyes. The most typical shade of eye color described is blue; however, reports have also described violet, pink, red, purple, and green eyes. Known to be in great physical shape and extremely attractive to humans, Nordics can easily pass for human when seen from a distance. They communicate with telepathy and telekinesis.
Origin of the Nordics
The Nordics come from the Pleiades star cluster some 400 light years from Earth. Some of the first stories about these aliens came from Billy Meier of Switzerland, who claims he had several visits with them beginning in the 1940s. The majority of his information came from discussions with a female Pleiadian named Samjese in the late 1970s and early 1980s. According to his story, their home planet is called Erra, which is in a different dimension than ours. They are an ancient humanoid race that discovered our planet around 225,000 B.C.
The Nordic Agenda
Nordics are silent watchers of Earth, and their purpose is to enlighten by providing spiritual revelation and warn humans about behaviors that could potentially lead to catastrophe, including issues surrounding actions by the grey aliens and reptilians. Some proponents say that ideas within the New Age movement were given to us by the Nordics.
Orthon [the Nordic alien] was a medium-height humanoid with long blond hair and tanned skin, wearing reddish-brown shoes... He communicated via telepathy and through hand signals.— George Adamski, ufologist
More Possible Alien Species
Small, greenish-silver humanoids.
Tall humanoid with a spade-shaped head.
Little green men
Diminutive green humanoids. Even though a few abduction or anal probe cases have referred to green skin no report has ever involved anything that would fit the classic cultural stereotype of "little green men."
There are three types of Andromedans that communicate telepathically. One is from a race of 4-5D humans that have similar features to us. Some may even have elongated cone heads. Another, is a race of 4D 3-4 foot tall blue skinned humanoids with bald round heads and dark eyes. The thrid is of a master race of at least 7-9 foot tall winged humanoids existing in higher dimensions.
The Anunnaki are a group of deities that appear in the mythological traditions of the ancient Sumerians, Akkadians, Assyrians, and Babylonians.
Why Are More People Believing in Aliens?
Since the advent of the Internet, more and more people have been able to upload videos of possible UFOs. New technology has given more credence to claims of abductions and alien visitations. In fact, a majority of people on the Earth believe that there is some form of alien life out there in the universe. About half of people surveyed believe that it is intelligent life, according to a global online survey.
The online survey, conducted by US-based consultancy Glocalities, was taken by 26,492 respondents. Out of the total respondents, 61% said they believed in extraterrestrial life. In fact, only 17 % of the respondents gave a definitive no, while 22% were unsure.

Most Credible Stories of UFOs
In the United States alone, there have been thousands of reported UFO sightings. Nevertheless, the U.S. government spends virtually no money researching this phenomenon. With so many sightings each year, it can be hard to take these claims seriously. Nevertheless, there are several accounts that are hard to disprove.
The Lights Above the New Jersey Turnpike (2001)
For around 15 minutes, just after midnight, drivers marveled at the sight of strange orange and yellow lights in a V formation over the Arthur Kill Waterway. Cataret Police Department’s Lt. Daniel Tarrant was one of the witnesses, as well as other metro area residents from the Throgs Neck Bridge on Long Island and Fort Lee, New Jersey near the George Washington Bridge. At first, air traffic controllers denied that any airplanes, military jets, or space flights could have caused the mysterious lights. However, a group known as the New York Strange Phenomena Investigators (NY-SPI) claimed to receive FAA radar data that corroborated the UFO sightings of that night.
The USS Nimitz Encounter (2004)
On November 14, 2004, the USS Princeton noted an unknown craft 100 miles off the coast of San Diego. For weeks, the crew had been tracking objects which appeared at 80,000 feet, then would plummet to hover right above the Pacific Ocean. When two FA-18F fighter jets from the USS Nimitz arrived in the area, they first saw what appeared to be churning boiling water in an oval shape underneath the surface. Then, in a few moments, a white Tic Tac-like object appeared above the water. Commander David Fravor and Lt. Cmdr. Jim Slaight of Strike Fighter Squadron 41 attempted to intercept the craft. However, the craft accelerated away, reappearing on radar 60 miles away. The craft was reported to have moved three times the speed of sound, and twice the speed of the fighter jets.
O’Hare International Airport Saucer (2006)
As Flight 446 was getting ready to fly to North Carolina from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, a United Airlines employee noticed a dark grey metallic craft hovering over gate C17. On November 7, 2006, a total of twelve United employees, and a few witnesses outside the airport, spotted the saucer-shaped craft around 4:15 P.M. They say it hovered for about five minutes before shooting upward where it broke a hole in the clouds. The news report became the most read story on the Chicago Tribune’s website and made international news. However, because the UFO was not seen on radar, the FAA called it a “weather phenomenon” and would not investigate.
The Phoenix Lights (1997)
The Phoenix Lights UFO sighting was viewed on mass. It occurred in Phoenix, Arizona, USA and Sonora, Mexico, on Thursday, March 13, 1997. Lights were reported by thousands of people between 19:30 and 22:30 MST, in a space of about 300 miles (480 km) from the Nevada state line, through Phoenix, to the edge of Tucson.
Allegedly, two distinct events were involved in the incident: a triangular formation of lights seen to pass over the state, and a series of stationary lights seen in the Phoenix area. The Air Force identified the second group of lights as flares dropped by A-10 Warthog aircraft that were on training exercises at the Barry Goldwater Range in Southwest Arizona. However, not all of the lights have been explained.
Certainly, the information about all these alien beings—greys, reptilians, and Nordics—seems like exciting reading from a good sci-fi novel!
Those who have encountered these beings seem very reliable in their testimonies about their experiences. Many come from what you would call normal backgrounds with good families, education, work, and normal physical and mental medical histories. There are thousands, if not tens of thousands, of people who have claimed to have had some sort of alien abduction encounter or UFO experience, so we can’t simply discount their stories as untrue.
The idea that unknown aliens visit us here on Earth, communicating and abducting us, seems far-fetched to some and exciting to others. Bringing clarity and understanding to the situation will help us all in our quest to know just what is happening in our world and answering the timeless question, do aliens really exist?
