Do you remember the scene in Star Wars (1977) when C3PO and R2D2 are traversing the Tattoine Desert and they stride past the huge skeletal remains of
some large creature? How many times are you looking over photos of Mars and just hoping that you'll come across a picture that entails as such? Okay
maybe it doesnt have to be so enormous, but any type of ancient now defunct Mars wildlife would be exciting - would it not? Though, preferably alive
would be more exciting, but anything......With all that being said, we've seen shells, micro-organisms, even rocks that are shaped liked bullfrogs
Anyways, take a look at these pics below. I pulled them from: themis.asu.edu...
Let me start by saying...(SpikeD disclaimer....) I am not saying they are in fact what they almost appear to be....but dont they kinda look like
dinosaur remains stuck in Uzboi Vallis on Mars? Could they be? What are the chances that large reptile type creatures at one time roamed on Planet
Mars just as they did here on Earth? Obviously, the current climate wouldnt be favorable to provide the proper habitats for such creatures, though it
is up for debate...as are many things with planet Mars - another thread another time... But say these were the remains of dead animals. What does that
say for the decomposition rate on Mars? Due to current climate/atmospheric conditions, would organic material possibly calcify or 'harden' by some
process similar to that of the desert here? I'm no scientist by trade, so its actually kind of a legitimate question I'm posing there. Looking
forward to hearing your thoughts and replies. Thanks for looking and enjoy!
