The thing about Martian Iguanas (Iguana Marsicus) is that they had such tough skin that it doesn't erode when exposed to the harsh elements on the
Martian surface. As a result, the fossilized remains of the Martian Iguana are often fully intact, with virtually no noticeable decomposition. Iguana
Marsicus will outlast rivers, oceans, rocks, and even time itself. If we could harvest enough of them we could use their skins to make a super
lightweight exoskeleton for use in the aerospace industry - If we had material strong enough to pierce their skins, of course!
Additionally, the Martian Iguana was so well suited to it's environment that it was the exact same color as the Martian soil, rocks, and sky. This
makes the Martian Iguana very hard to spot even when it's right in front of you, and anyone who has done so should get automatic stars and flags even
if they do not believe themselves that they have spotted Iguana Marsicus.
