Mystery of the Ubaid Lizardmen

Ubaid Lizardmen

The Al’Ubaid archaeological site is a small mound of about half a kilometer in diameter and two meters above ground. The site was first excavated by Harry Reginald Hal in 1919.

7,000-year-old artifacts unearthed there display humanoid figurines with lizard-like features. Those are real male and female reptilian statues found in many different positions. Some appear to be wearing helmets, while others have shoulder padding. Other figurines were found to be holding a scepter or staff and some of the female statues are breastfeeding or holding their babies, which have reptilian features as well.

With their long heads, almond shaped eyes, elongated tapered faces, and lizard-like noses, one can’t help but wonder why they were so important to the Ubaidian people. We know that the serpent was a major symbol in many societies, but according to many archaeologists, these lizard-like creatures were not worshipped as gods, so that leads us to the question what exactly do they represent?


In many ancient cultures there are tales and legends that speak of lizard-like entities communicating with the people. The Hopi Indians of northern Arizona have stories that date back hundreds of years and speak of their “Snake Brothers” who built underground cities in Arizona, Mexico, and Central America. In addition, the Toltec Mayan God in Gucumatz was often referred to as a “serpent of wisdom”, who played a role in enlightening human beings. The Cherokee and other Native American tribes also have tales that refer to a race of reptiles.


In India, a few of their scriptures and legends speak of the Naga, who are reptile beings that live underground, often spending time with humans. Indian texts also refer to a tribe of men called the “Sarpa,” a reptilian race with snake-like noses and serpentine legs.

The Japanese reptilian being is called Kappa. There is also evidence of a reptilian race in the Middle East where the statues were found, along with reptilian-like people who range from Jinn to dragons and serpent-men.

Hearing about these statues reminds many of an article that appeared in the January 27th edition of the Los Angeles Times.


The story tells of a lost city of catacombs filled with incalculable treasures and records of an advanced race of humans. G. Warren Shufelt, a geophysicist and mining engineer became obsessed with unearthing the lost city below Fort Moore Hill and hoped that by doing so, the secrets of the Lizard people would be revealed.

Shufelt believed that lying in the catacombs were tablets made of gold containing information proving to be priceless to the human race, as The Lizard People were more advanced than modern human beings. He believed so deeply in this that he drove a 250 foot shaft into the ground. Using radio X-rays, Mr. Shufelt mapped out what he believed to be the pattern of the catacombs and their vaults of the lost city.

Large rooms in the domes of the hills above the city of labyrinths housed 1000 families “in the manner of tall buildings” and imperishable food supplies of the herb variety were stored in the catacombs to provide sustenance for them for great lengths of time as the next fire (cataclysm) swept over the earth.

He wasn’t sure that the maze of catacombs once belonged to the Lizard people until he met with Little Chief Greenleaf in the medicine lodge of the Hopi Indians. Once Chief Greenleaf told Mr. Shufelt about the lizard people, he was convinced that he’d found one of their underground cities. In fact, after studying the pattern of the catacombs, Mr. Shufelt noticed that the city itself resembled a lizard.


While mainstream science scoffs at the idea of a race of Reptilians, they are unable to come up with a better theory to explain these 7,000 year old reptilian statues. Was mankind really in contact with such a race, or everything is just an elaborate hoax in which people just want to believe?
