Cladotherianthropy (cladotherianthrope or cladotherian) is a subcategory of Modern Therianthropy in which a Therian does not identify as a distinct species, but instead feels a broader identity encompassing an entire genus or family, such as Canis or Canidea, or a larger grouping. Cladotherianthropy was coined in 2003 by Mokele, a reptile cladotherian, on the therian forum called Wereness Forums." [1]

"I’m a reptilian cladotherian, a type of therianthropy which has only recently been described and named (see the essay section for more details).  It’s complicated, but the shortest explanation I can give is that while, like some other therians, my soul has two parts, human and non-human, in my case the non-human part is not species-specific, but rather the collective essence of the entire reptilian lineage.  So, while the part of my soul that is not human is a single animal-side, it has elements of everything Reptilia is, was, and potentially can be.  And if this sounds complicated from the reader’s perspective, imagine trying to figure it all out inside your head." [2]
Cladotherian comes from the Greek words klados meaning “branch” and therion meaning “animal.” The klados prefix was originally chosen by Mokele because in scientific terms, a clade is a group of organisms believed to have evolved from a common ancestor, and all its lineal descendants, according to the principles of cladistics.
