Grey phenotype

The Greys are probably the best-known phenotype of extraterrestrials. Older UFO literature distinguishes 3 main types, but closer inspection reveals there are actually five main types. These often have many variations between them. This seems especially to be the case for the ‘standard’ Greys where there are variations in skin colour, in whether their arms seems to have an elbow or not, in whether they have hands or claws, and in the appendages on those hands which can be fingers, tentacles with suction caps, ...

The five main types are:

  1. Tall Nosed Greys: they are 6 to 9 feet tall, and, unlike other Greys, they have a distinct nose.
  2. Tall Greys: they are 6-7 feet tall, and basically are taller versions of the ‘Standard Greys.’ They have large heads and wraparound eyes, a slit-like mouth.It is possible that we are actually dealing with two different types, because, unlike the ‘Standard Greys,’ some of these Tall Greys are said to have reproductive organs. They also seem to have something that resembles a (small) nose. 
  3. Standard Greys: This is the most common type. They are about four to four and a half foot tall, with large bulbous heads and wraparound eyes, a slit-like mouth, small ears without earlobes, and no visible nose. Their legs are shorter and jointed differently than one would expect in a human. Their arms often reach down to their knees. These Greys have been seen in many different colours and are generally pale in appearance: grey, white, (pale) blue, (pale) green, (pale) orange, and brown. It should be noted that there doesn't seem to be one standard phenotype of these, as they have been observed with many different features: some have hands with fingers, some have claws, some have webs, etc. 
  4. Short Greys: these Greys are shorter, about three and a half foot tall. They typically look like shorter, but far more muscular - ‘body builder’ - versions of the Standard Greys. They are said to be extremely aggressive, and generally are believed to be the most dangerous of all grey species. (On the Internet, these are often dubbed ‘Bellatrix Greys'). 
  5. Mini Greys: since 2009 (?), reports have emerged which mention Greys that fit the description of the standard Greys (type 3), but are only two feet in size, instead of the usual four to four and half.
