Frightening insectoid aliens are prominent in reports of human abductions by aliens. This extraterrestrial is often described as being part of an entourage of an insectoid alien species in certain abduction scenarios.

Insectoid Aliens: Traits and Characteristics

Abductees Report That Insectoid Aliens Wear Odd Clothing

Perhaps one of the oddest sights of these insectoid aliens is how some of them wear long flowing robes. Abductees describe various colors that imply the colors might be linked to rank. Others, perhaps lower ranking insectoids, don't wear any clothing.

Do Praying Mantis Aliens Have Shapeshifting Abilities?

The praying mantis aliens are said to have the ability to shapeshift. Eyewitnesses claim these insectoid aliens first appear to them as humans. Gradually, each human morphed into a very tall praying mantis.

Theory of Insectoid Alien Mind Control

The insectoid aliens may not have shapeshifting abilities. Some alien theorists believe the transformation from human shape to praying mantis is just an illusion and is more of a mind-control skill. The insectoid aliens might project a less intimidating human form to stave off any panic that their true praying mantis form would cause. Donning the human form ensures the insectoid alien meets less resistance from their human victims.

Reported Encounters With Insectoid Aliens

The idea of insectoid aliens comes from both popular culture (such as anime, books, video games, and television) as well as from reports of people claiming to be alien abductees or encounterers.

The psychologists stated the entity was very childlike and lovable. Hands claimed to have a life expectancy of 120 years.

Artist Writes of Fathering Hybrid Aliens

The praying mantis insectoid is often described by those claiming to be abductees as being in charge of the Greys. These smaller aliens known as the Greys are often described as being little more than drones or possibly some type of alien robot. The mantis is clearly in charge and usually the one conducting the examinations. According to abductee and artist David Huggins, the insectoid alien that has a praying mantis appearance is the overseer. David's book, Love in an Alien Purgatory: The Life and Fantastic Art of David Huggins reveals his incredulous association with aliens and that he's fathered 60 alien hybrid children.

J-Rod and Ancient Aliens TV Series on Insectoid Humans

In an episode of the History Channel's Ancient Aliens, the story of insectoid humans is revealed. The TV show explains that in the future, there is a cataclysmic event that splits the human species into two separate species, with one going underground to survive. The underground humans eventually morphed into insectoid humans. Supposedly, an insectoid alien named J-Rod was recovered from a crashed UFO. The alien claimed to be from Earth's future. The episode reveals that J-Rod has worked with the US government ever since his capture by assisting in the development of technology.

Frightening Abductions and Insectoid Alien Encounters

The various stories of medical examinations performed by the mantis aliens lead many alien researchers to believe these creatures are part of an alien hybridization program. The praying mantis aliens take DNA from their abductees to create a new alien hybrid that is part alien and part human. There is a great deal of speculation about why insectoid aliens would need a hybridization species, particularly with a race so different from their own.

Theories About Alien Hybridization Programs

Some UFOlogist and alien theorists believe the Insectoids may be attempting to create a new alien form to ensure their own species survives. Others believe these beings are simply experimenting with humans in the same way some humans experiment on Earth animals.
