If there is anything that I know, it seems sheer stupidity to call it a rock.
Why? It almost certainly is a rock - so it hardly seems a stupid thing to call it what it is. Rocks don't have to be shapeless lumps you know.
Google up "animal shaped rocks," and you'll get dozens of results. It is rock colored. It has a shape that is vaguely lizard-shaped, except it
really has no feet to speak of.
It makes more sense to you that a single lizard is sitting on a rock for hours? A rock-colored lizard? With no other life around - nothing for it to
eat, drink, etc. Just a single lizard hanging out in its own happy little ecosystem? I don't think so.
Someone once posted a pic of what looked like a tool on Mars. Looked like a wrench. I took it into work, as I worked for an environmental company
who had a lot of top-notch geologists working for them. I asked one of the top guys (without telling him it was Mars or anything.. was just a black
and white photo), if the picture could be a rock. He didn't even hesitate. He said yes, it was a rock. He had seen rocks in every shape you could
think of. And you will see interesting shaped rocks on Mars, too.
You are naive though, to think that NASA would "blur out" anything. If there was a picture they did not want you to see.. you would not see it, plain
and simple. They wouldn't go through the effort of hiding something. It would simply never be posted on any site that Joe Public could browse. You
act as if pictures go directly from the rover to a pubic website. No.. that isn't how it works. They certainly wouldn't make an effort to photograph
an interesting rock and then post it, if they thought even for a moment it was life on Mars.
