There are enough clues to think about the possibility of pre-human reptilian intelligence. Some people believe that even members of the British Royal Family are reptilian. H.P.Lovecraft had a story about a pre-human race of intelligent crocodilians. Even the Bible has a serpent who was more subtle than other creatures, a serpent that could communicate with humans, one that was punished to crawl, intimating that it did not crawl before. Conan had to deal with worshippers of Set a reptilian deity. Lamia are creatures that could return to a serpentine form. Legends of dragons and wyrms are found all around the planet.
