Ok so we have all seen the face on Mars and well i came across this today when looking at the new high resolution photos of Pluto. Now granted, most likely this is a case of Pareidolia, however, it looks interesting and sort of like a skull face, with big teeth i guess. Anyway the anomaly is located in the centre of a crater on the West hand side of the new high res photo, link below. Probably nothing, but thought it looked intriguing, so the floor is open to you guys:
And here is the link to the high res photo where i noticed it: CLICK HERE

so with all this talk of Pareidolia, can anyone link me to any scientific studies showing that this is an actual neurological function? as much as i've searched the internet, all i seem to find are more and more people throwing the word around and no actual scientific basis.

If you search through psychology texts, you'll find many studies showing that babies respond very strongly to stimuli arranged to look like a face.
