Alas, it's probably a tool mark from the rover.

Is the most logical conclusion really a coin here guys? I mean, there can't be a trillion more logical things that it possible could be? Like maybe rover tool marks or something?
If I had to bet, I would say maybe tool marks. If I didn't have to bet, I would say it is a fossilized alien footprint (they do not require toes for balance due to their upper body configuration and weight distributions...shame they are extinct now....) There, do I fit in now?
You are not the only one, but most people do not go to the "trouble" of looking at anything that is not a higly compressed JPEG...
