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
