Many cryptids reported are humanoids, or similar to humans in their anatomy. Some are also thought to be intelligent on a human level since they seem to have evolved in a similar path.

Humanoid cryptids typically have one or more of these characteristics:

  • Two eyes (binocular vision)
  • The ability to walk upright (biomechanic bipedalism)
  • Opposable thumbs
  • Not quite human (like human mixed with another animal-anthropomorphic)
  • Ability to build structures
  • Can communicate with other humanoids
