We should look at the original photo, not at resampled versions and much less at the coloured versions.
This is what the object looks like when resized to 400% without resampling. This is what the image really shows.
It has too much JPEG artefacts to be useful.

edit on 4/2/2013 by ArMaP because: (no reason given)
these people that say it's clearly just a rock need their eyes checked, I'm viewing this on my mobile phone and have been able to see the lizard
similarity since the first post. now, this one makes the gaps between the rock and the "legs", you can clearly see the light under them. I'm not
saying this is a creature/fossil but it's an interesting find.
furthermore, for those that asked about footprints, do you leave footprints when you walk across rock? i don't!
also, someone said earlier if they saw examples of this on earth they might rethink and the link to rocks shaped like animals (including one close to
me, the least convincing Elephant Rock) but they were all massive examples, not as small and delicate looking like the one on mars.
this is one of the most convincing 'anomalies' on Mars I've seen, would love to be able to find it for sure what it is. at the end of the day NONE
of us know and THAT's the bottom line!
