Curiousity Rover Spots A Lizard On Mars?

lizard on marsYou 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?

      This is a different photo. There have been a few different photos of ‘animals’ on the surface of Mars.

  3. That’s a rock. It’s only an optical illusion that makes you think it’s a lizard.

      Almost certainly. One of the things humans are truly exceptional at is shape recognition and interpretation. It is a crucial part of a sensory package which is, overall, perhaps the most advanced known to mankind.

      Sometimes, however, we can be a little *too* good at it, seeing patterns and recognizing shapes where there really are none.

      • Yes, we know; it’s called pareidolia. It’s just not as much fun as making up random shit.

      I can virtually guarantee you that the majority of the readers here are aware that this is the case. We’re just having a bit of fun. At least until John Carter comes back and verifies the presence of these Martian Monitors.

        You have more faith in people than I do.

          There’s a difference between faith and “reasonable assumption”. Check the comments: People are having fun. Come on in – the water’s fine! 🙂

            It looks like what my cat periodically barfs up onto the carpet. 😛 And I swear, he specifically aims for the carpet when there is a nice big expanse of tile.

        The possibility of John Carter coming back has unfortunately been ruined by Disney.

  4. Lizard my ass, that looks like a rat to me.
    Also, “He’s coming right for us!”

  5. Oh come on… They faked the mars landing too?

    Alas, this is all that remains of the once great Draconian empire.

    If you look carefully, you can see that the lizard is eating a piece of toast with Jesus’s picture on it!

  8. Looks like stones that have been morphed to look like a lizard or a rodent…

    That is clearly a skag pup.

    Lizard? Thats a bullsh*it psych job, theres nothing but a couple of rovers runnin’ round out there…

  11. CosmicAmazing | Jun 10, 2013 at 8:40 am |

    Lizard my ass.

    • Matt Staggs | Jun 10, 2013 at 4:04 pm |

      Couldn’t find a single listing for lizarding asses at Urban Dictionary. I think you’ve got a shot at UD immortality. Go go go!

    I bet if there are Martians living under the surface then our Rovers are their local equivalent of Bigfoot.

  13. I value the day when I see photos of Mars and Obama is in one.

    It’s one of those rock aliens from the Apollo 18 movie. Better watch out when we start sending people to Mars. These rock aliens can easily crawl into your space suit and go right up your ass. That’d be one bad case of hemorrhoids..

    It was a weather balloon.
