so i read up the hollow earth reptilian shape shifters, and my first thoughts were that it was rubbish, but then i thought, well if were going to
speculate wildly about something completely preposterous, we might as well go about it in a methodical manner.
so i thought about the physiology of these mythical humanoids, how could a reptile have super human strength and intelligence? so first thing is that
they cannot be cold blooded, because big smart brains require lots of oxygen and energy, something that a cold blooded animal just cannot provide, so
they had to come from the same line as birds, therapoda. next up, physical size and shape, this is something i just cant figure out. if they evolved
as bipeds, surely there would some evidence of that in the fossil record right? but there isnt, so that remains a mystery. then their shape shifting
abilities, well chameleons can change color, so theres that, albeit a much more sophisticated version of it.
nope thats still total garbage, however there is a solution.
octopuses for instance are smarter than reptiles. they also have hemocyanin in their blood instead of hemoglobin which carries oxygen more efficiently
at lower temperatures.
more importantly they can change not only the color of their skin, but also the texture, and do it much more rapidly and to a greater degree of
complexity than a chameleon, by far.
isnt that awesome?
next up, they live in the ocean, which is still a pretty mysterious place comparatively, and its teeming with life, so its a much better home for a
secret society of hyper intelligent monster overlords in my honest opinion.
and being invertebrates, and lacking a solid shell, these hypothetical cephalopods wouldnt leave much if any evidence of their evolution, or continued
existence in the form of fossilized remains.
so in conclusion, if theres any intelligent creatures on the planet, that we dont know about, i'd put my money on mollusk.

Outta box... Before the Dinosaurs evolved here which may have had some influences on inner Earth there were Giant insects which may have evolved as
well.. They were the giant arthropods of the Carboniferous. Now factor them gaining awarness ect. as the later reptiles and mammals did and there
may be some large insects located somewhere. To go even further outta box it or they may have channelling or telepathic connections.
