The social media giant's co-founder Mark Zuckerberg made the bizarre comment during a recent Q&A session.
As head of the world's largest social media site, the 32-year-old billionaire has certainly been at the center of a few conspiracy theories in his time.
Perhaps the most peculiar of these comes from David Icke, a controversial figure from the UK who has long maintained that the world's elite are actually 'shapeshifting lizards', a theory that really is as ludicrous as it sounds and one that Zuckerberg seemed particularly keen to address.
"Mark, are the allegations true that you’re secretly a lizard ?" he said, reading one of the questions. "Um... I’m gonna, I’m gonna have to go with ‘no’ on that. I am not a lizard."
"But keep the high quality comments coming in please, this is surely on track to be a great Live Q&A if we continue getting stuff at that level of quality."
Back in 2013, a poll found that as many as 4 percent of registered voters in the United States subscribed to the idea that "lizard people control our societies by gaining political power."
At least we now know that Zuckerberg isn't one of them...
