You may be skeptical, but I want to believe in the adorableness of Mars lizards. UFO Sightings Daily weighs in on an image taken recently by the Mars Curiousity Rover:
This odd creature was discovered on Mars by a person in Japan in March. This animal was not the first to be discovered in NASA photos but is in a long line of strange creatures. This one seems to resemble a rodent but also may be a lizard.
With water existing on Mars in small amounts, its possible to find such desert animals wandering around…although very rare mind you. Then again, is NASA placing animals from tiny cyogenic chambers inside the rover onto the surface of Mars to conduct tests?
