Hey guys, again, not making a call but... I suggest finding an Earth rock that is oblong with a bulbous end, appears to be flexible in the middle, sports a multi-prong tail and two identical features, space evenly on the large area that look like holes of the same size.

Nature is cool and I love fossil hunting. but... the only way this passes for a rock is because of Curiosity's lack of megapixels on the mast. Lack of focusing ability and resolution could make a rock look like this but... aside from that, I call it damned odd... but, nothing more.



When I look at it with my peripherals I see what looks like a skull of like an Eel kind of. The face pointing left.

But again, I think very rationally with these types of things.

What was this 'thing' doing in it's moments leading up to it's death?
If it were millions of years old could it still be so in tact and on the surface?

Where was this photo taken and where is a link to the original?

This is a interesting image however. Although I have seen some other photos that look like aquatic fossils without further investigation and better higher quality images it is all speculation and paradolia.

Oh well, it's out there for anyone interested in more than guffaws and belly laughs.

I tried.


Don't sweat it, redoubt. There are a lot of members here, and some aren't willing to consider possibilities beyond the end of their nose.
It may very well be a rock, but I don't find the idea of it being a fossil so far out there, either. Thanks for posting it.

Actually it was your tinsy 'UFO' that was the first thing I looked at in the OP's picture, a regular shape with a round hole in the middle, which had what looked like regular pinholes inside it. Now I see it in your Zoom, the pinholes look to be some kind of proofmark or watermark, or perhaps some layering procedure all over the pictures. I hope they will come better than that. It's enough to peruse funny looking rocks until your eyeballs fall out, without pesky dots all over the scene.

The same effect can be seen on the newest Moon pictures, except the dots are white, often inside and along crater rims, and darker areas when zoomed in, I had put that down to some kind of layering. We need to ask NASA, what that effect is, although I'm sure someone already has.

Was thinking more like... shrimp or a scorpion?


Martian cat? Frog? Shrimp or scorpion? On Mars? How can you people say such things when it is clearly a baby Martian crocodile.

Funny enough, that's the sort of thing NASA is looking for... well almost, they are looking for loose pebbles grouped together that might indicate a past movement of water, you get that, and you might just get a shrimp, or its fossil.

That's very true.

Perhaps, but NASA's new vehicle "Satisfaction" is scheduled (in 2016) to bring it back.

Not sure what it is, a fossil or strangely eroded rock..

Perhaps not, but Curiosity has clearly knocked the crapola out of it!

Not what your title states,

Could this have been a lifeform may have been better!

It is far too easy to see what the mind wants to see when the mind really wants to see it, take this pretty ordinary photo of Mars, nothing out of the ordinary until you start blowing it up, then you get MARTIAN BUNNY!!!

It's just a rock really though.

Use the menu options on the left click search for option along top then click on an object of interest if the LRO has a close up image number is given, click on the image number and you are shown image like example below.

That small crater is on this image

Above the shadow in the picture the small bright crater on the large crater rim!
