From past to present, we can trace a lot of instances where people reporting their experiences when they encountered or sighted the extraterrestrial life or aliens. The existence of extraterrestrials is still under discussion. Do they really exist? Are they living among us? From where they originated or come. These are the few questions which we are still not sure off.

Following are given some of the few types of these extraterrestrials or aliens depending upon the physical features and characteristics they possess.

Little Green Men

These are considered as the orthodox depiction of the extraterrestrials, i.e. humanoid beings having green skin and antenna on heads. However, the term ‘little green men’ is also used for the gremlins – imaginary beings popular for bringing about problems in airplanes and other mechanical devices.

The term was first coined in 1955 to describe the extraterrestrial creature to which two Kentucky men supposed to encounter with. They explain the creature as a 3-4 feet tall, greenish humanoid creature. After that the creature was given the name little green men by several different newspapers.

Dropa Alien

These were supposed to discover by Chi Pu Tei, a Chinese professor of archeology at Beijing University along with his students somewhere in 1938 while conducting a very detailed routine survey of succession of interlinked caves in the Bayan Kara-Ula – a range of Himalayan Mountains on the border of China and Tibet (Qinghai region).

What the team of explorers found in the caves was rows of neatly arranged graves buried in which an unnaturally spindly bodies, i.e. a short 138 cm skeletons with large, over developed heads. First it was suggested that the skeletons may belong to some species of apes or mountain gorilla but later they realized that these species don’t bury each other dead bodies.

The explorers didn’t find any inscriptions at the graves instead found hundreds of wide stone discs called Dropa Stones. There was a hole in the center of the disc and two fine grooves which were spiraling from the edge of the disc to the hole. These spiraling grooves were actually the closely written character. It took 20 years to decipher the grooves. It was professor Tsum Um Nui who was able to break the code and deciphers the spiral grooves.

Hairy Dwarf

Hairy dwarfs are the kind of extraterrestrials which are shorter in their size than a normal human being. Most of the hairy dwarf varieties are known to be very skilled and proficient with and exception of Bigfoot which is considered as the normal type of humanoid hairy dwarf. It is said that hairy dwarfs wear clothing, make use of tools and some of them can speak as well.

Hairy dwarf are commonly related to UFOs. Early reports say that the people who encountered the aliens were in fact hairy dwarfs rather than orthodox greys. As the time passed, the reports of encounters with hairy dwarfs lessen and today we never heard about these extraterrestrials.

Being in strong connection with UFOs and high technology, hairy dwarfs are often distinguished from the miniature Bigfoot dwarf. There are instances where people encountered relatively larger hairy humanoids. These are normally considered weird hairy humanoids. They are supposed to occupy the UFOs or sighted in the areas where UFOs are common.

Normally, hairy dwarfs get much less attention from the researchers specializes in the field of cryptozoology. However, ufologists usually show concern in analyzing the hairy dwarfs.

These extraterrestrials are known to be very good-looking having a flexible, lithe built. These are usually very thin. This creature is defined by Contactee testimony as, “so spiritually developed that they no longer a physical body. They are almost beings of light energy. They are illuminated in light.

It is also assumed that the ancestors of the Dogon people were visited by aliens from Sirius. These aliens passed on their knowledge to human beings whom the generation passed through generation as originally the Dogons were thought to be primitive tribe of hunters and gathers.
