Martian pareidolia coincidences...

... well, I'm assuming they are probably coincidences, but you be the judge.

Background. I was scanning through some of the various Mars photos that are in circulation, claiming to show weird things lying around on the red planet, some of which are laughable, when I noticed apparent correlations between a few. So I'm posting them here for you to inspect.

Caveat: I haven't sourced the original NASA photos, as it would be too difficult and time-consuming, so am taking it on trust that these are all genuine. These pics are all taken from amateur sites, all of which are a bit 'excitable' on the subject.

The first two are a couple of images said by some to contain a 'lizard' and a 'rat' (sometimes given as 'squirrel').

But to me, they appear to show very similar objects. Check them out - ground-hugging elongated form, with 'leg-like' protruberances at the bottom, all pointing forward like Turkish slippers, and (taking those protruberances as pointing toward a 'head') a remarkably similar profile at the front end. (The back end of the 'rat/squirrel' is hidden behind a rock, unfortunately, so it's hard to say whether the resemblance continues)

First the 'lizard' (caveat: I suspect this image has been coloured-in to emphasise the feature in question):



Now the 'rat/squirrel':



Then there's the 'snake', which was the subject of a thread on ATS about a month ago. This one's a bit harder to dismiss.

Here's that photo again. Except, if you look carefully, you'll see that there are two 'snakes', quite close together.



Finally, here's another picture, sometimes called the 'exhaust pipe'/'tail pipe'. But in fact, it appears to be a similar phenomenon to the 'snakes' in the picture immediately above. Something serpentine, curved and wavy-looking, is rearing up almost vertically in an anomalous way.



So there you have it. Separate photographs that might depict two types of Martian life-forms: a ground-hugging critter, and what for the sake of simplicity we might call snakes.

Or (more likely) it's all just yet more bizarre coincidences, tricks of light and shadow. Anyway, I thought it interesting enough to share.

Make of it what you will.

Interesting comparison of the two lizard-like critters.

My question when I see such images is "What do they eat?"

Given that those are Martian life forms that look like Earthly types, would they not have similar diets of flora and fauna?

So where is the food stuff? Perhaps hidden under rocks? Would we not notice evidence of the Mars lizards having burrowed and moved rocks to live and eat from under? Surely, it would have to be other creatures and not flora as we have seen absolutely none of that on Mars.

I can't even begin to imagine how to answer that question. But if there's life, then it's living on something right enough, even if it's not immediately obvious to us what that something might be.

I suppose a working theory could be that every life-form on Mars is carnivorous, due to the evolutionary pressure occurring when Mars lost its water, atmosphere, and magnetic belts (and flora, if it ever had any).

S+F for This Thread! You make good points here. If in fact there are living animals/creatures on Mars, perhaps they have to walk considerable distances, to find food? There may indeed be flora/fauna there, but not in sight of the rover, if it is in fact even there... I have seen many images depicting forests, and other plant like things there, on the red planet...

I don't know, is it just me or do all the pictures from Mars look like they could be from the Mojave Desert?

I don't personally find these particular pics very compelling, but great post OP. I'm betting if any advanced life currently exists on Mars it would be under the surface, but maybe could surface briefly. . I wonder if some of the caves/tunnels have actually been examined yet? How could anyone send probes to Mars and ignore these? That would not make sense.

I know right?! There are times when I think We did NOT put that rover on Mars... Wouldn't surprise Me if we have that Rover right here on this planet somewhere...

I'm not suggesting that there is not and never was life on Mars. I believe that there was a high order of life formerly on a living planet that suddenly died when a body crashed into the planet creating the Valles Marineris gash.

As with on Earth, fossils galore will probably be found once we dig deeply into the Martian surface.

Actually, the proof of an advanced life form being technologically enabled is found by a close study of the grooves on the moon Phobos. While our scientists claim they are naturally caused, the hidden evidence shown in the early Viking orbiter images indicate a pattern caused by intelligent manipulation of the body. But that is a story within itself.

Personally, I find the random geometric formations to be more interesting than the alleged life forms and I tend to think the lizard/rat creatures are actually rocks. Much more intriguing, to me at least, are the straight edged rocks in this picture you posted...



Good luck with this topic.
Your patience will be tested when the usual suspects surface and shoot you down.

I posted a thread the other day about a cool rock I saw. It fits here too. just sharing in your thread.

But the rocks that 'form' the animals are equally strange. I mean, the limbs are really 'perfect', if you know what I mean.

And then there is this tail-like formation which comes to complete the animal figure.

I understand and it would be better if we had the original NASA picture to examine. I know for certain that there is a channel on YouTube that enhances these discoveries and, in my opinion, they change the picture to suit their proposition. I think the OP's picture may be one of these overly-enhanced examples.

Rodents are quite prevalent throughout the universe and have survived the war(s) that decimated Mars and most of it's inhabitants. Here is another image of a Martian Mouse, possibly foraging for Gale Kale.

Here is another Martian Rodent apparently not happy with being photographed (rats like their privacy).

The image above is just silliness, but on a serious note, the rat/squirrel in your 2nd photo looks very much like a Syrian Hamster.... also, the image of your "snake" just might be a rat's scaly tail...

My fave personal finds are the cute Martian mouse...

...and Martian paddletail lizard ...

...not to mention the shadow-assisted Martian aardvark...

My favorite is the so called crab that eats the rodents and lizards!

I think the Martian Rat is awesome , blew me away when I first saw it , a perfect combination of circumstances.

I have a feeling there is paleontology on Mars but it's locked up in the rocks not sitting on the surface , I believe any life that may have started would have been aquatic.

Well, despite the inevitable mockers appearing, the initial feedback was encouraging enough for me to do a little bit more filling out of the hypothesis I'm playing with here.

I found better quality pics, and used the crappy but simple site-builder service provided by weebly.com to create a little album with some notes and a guestbook.

See for yourself.

(The fonts are all mis-matching because using Weebly is like trying to eat a soft-boiled egg while wearing boxing gloves, and in the end I just gave up trying to get it to look uniform).

Feel free to forward the link to people you think might find it interesting. It'll be a day or three before Google indexes it.

amazing work audubon!
i think that a good part of mars lifeforms went extinct however there are some still alive!
