I found this today and I am not sure if it is a hoax or not. I searched for the story on ATS and was quite surprised to find a similar story and more photos of lizard life on Mars.

This is a different thread started by Arken >
"Lizard in plain sight and creature with tentacles..."
And at first this appears to be the same story but I believe these are different batch of pictures that appear to show a different lizard on Mars. Could this be some kind of massive hoax or are these pictures CGI? Anyone?





Is that a Lizard???


A photo from the Mars Curiosity Rover reveals what appears to be a small animal or lizard on Mars.

The photo was taken on February 20, 2013 by Curiosity’s MASTCAM and a high resolution copy is available on NASA’s JPL/Caltech website.

The image was originally discovered by a Japanese researcher in March and uploaded to Youtube on May 14.

The small figure appears to have a tail, four legs and has the characteristics of a lizard.

If the object is indeed a lizard, then the photo from NASA’s own Curiosity mission not only reveals that life exists on Mars, but is also evidence that NASA is ignoring direct evidence of life.


Apparently...

a high resolution copy is available on NASA’s JPL/Caltech website.

A rock that looks remarkably like a lizard? Are you saying it is a kick-knack like a marble figurine that is in the shape of a lizard? It does look a lot like that. Then how did the thing get there is what I'd like to know? Ha

That would be, by my amateur eyes, a rock.

No im saying its a rock... that looks like a rock... on another planet (Which is a rock)

Pareidolia (pron.: /pærɨˈdoʊliə/ parr-i-DOH-lee-ə) is a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant. Common examples include seeing images of animals or faces in clouds, the man in the moon or the Moon rabbit, and hearing hidden messages on records when played in reverse.

You are right there I missed this one but that thread doesn't have a link to the story. Maybe it's not a rock? And this isn't the only similar photo...Arken posted some others. Like I said, is this a hoax? Do you know or are you surmising and going by what other posters said? Has it been proved a hoax? I suppose if it is a living thing it wouldn't be in another photo of the same area unless it is dead. I don't know. sorry for my ignorance and thanks for the link to the original story here.

It looks like a rock to me ... that's not to say that the rock is not a fossilized reptilian creature or a long-abandoned sculpture of some sort.

Who really knows though? It could be a rock creature that operates outside of our current scope of knowledge.

Yeah I've heard of it but sometimes it doesn't apply. If you saw a picture of my face and said, that looks like a face, Pareidolia doesn't apply, because it is a face.

So you are saying you have seen subsequent pictures of the same area and this structure is still present proving that it is not a living thing and is actually a "rock" or you heard something?... or what is your source of information that this is in fact a rock? It might just look like a rock but it doesn't quite even do that.

There is little to no atmosphere on Mars... I promise you... Its a rock...

Just like in my thread... the crocodile was a rock... the flower was a rock...

The battle ships.... were rocks...

The angle of the picture makes it look like something its not... IF they took the same picture from a different angle it would look like.... take a guess...

Check it.

We, here on earth operate with a strong atmosphere. Therefore, our "scientists" (apple geniuses with a fancier title) assume that all life across the universe has to operate by the same laws and principles that we do. This is a logical fallacy.

I can find corral that does....TED had an amazing expose on that by the way....not trying to "debunk" your statement...

ETA: Kind of proves a point though....we see what we want to see. Given that, our observations of lifeforms here on Earth are extensive and real time. Mars-side, we are reliant upon time-delayed images processed through NASA.

Perhaps... but until life is discovered that doesn't need the same thing we do... that being breathable air...

Said "logical fallacy" remains logical...

Coral mimicking octopii? That is interesting.

But I'm not sure there's anything to be debunked in what I've said...except of course that the lizard on Mars actually is a rock.
