to me it looks like an electric eel...


Good find.

edit:

not sure what you guys call this creature...we call it Murina. I don't think it's an eel.




But also look at the object it is leaning on.

This looks alive to me at the back of the picture.

marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov...


That's one of Fort's damned things for sure. Zoomed in on, it looks every bit like a porcupine or something looking at the Rover with two little eyes, and fur. If nothing else this is another one for the "Mars Calendar of Creatures".

And you are the Mars explorer always looking for marsimals. And finding them!

What was the possible scenario? Did the Rover slip and slide and meander down into an area it knew was rough sailing, then, after sliding around, circle around to the other side, just to take a picture of the shell-like object? It could be another one of the flip rocks, or an actual shell, or just a interesting rock (3rd choice probably, I always go with rocks now, but ask questions about them).

I think that's the "appearing rock" at the bottom left corner, with the other rocks near the top of the image being the part from where the other rock broke and, apparently, jumped to where it is now. I think the tracks left by the rover are not as they should because of a wheel that doesn't turn.

Oh, so it's from Opportunity and not Curiosity. I thought it was a recent Curiosity pic (I'm not good at knowing which uploads are which, and what camera is what). Thanks.

i didn't know what to make of it, seems like a part of a tooth, i wonder what size it is. There are of course all sizes and kinds of tooth fossils and root types. See how over time they can get those patterns also.

I know, that one is very similar to the Carcharodon megalodon tooth I found some years ago, as you can see below.




PS: the serrated edge is still sharp enough to cut paper.

Does it let you bring forward and enlarge without blurring pictures? I need something so i can become less a nuisance

Yes, zooming in doesn't resample and resizing has several options, one of them (I think it's called nearest neighbour) doesn't resample either, we just get bigger pixels.

that looks quite small, should be interesting to see it in color.

ok I got it this time I think

not sure if this is the one you're describing Aleister ?

I was thinking how easy it is for us to think only in our own known terms. When it comes to size of objects I think we need to ignore our need to find earth size.

Short story

When i was about 3-4 my Family went hunting arrowheads. My father made beautiful framed groupings of them and he also made arrowheads himself just like the old ones if he need a fill in piece.

We lived in the high desert and it was a common hobby hunting and collecting along with minerals. Well this day my Mother was crawling along on all fours and being a little kid I simply crawled behind her wherever she went. She found a lot of arrowheads but suddenly I shouted in delight because my Mother had crawled right past a huge and perfect spear head, it was about 5 or 6 inches long and gorgeous! She missed it because she was focused on small...

If I saw those rocks, I'd run. Strange rocks that the rover is walking in now, it reminds me of R2D2 walking along the rocky path, minding his own business, with all the little yellow-eyed creatures following his movement, ready to pounce. You can keep Mars, give me a nice stroll on Saturn any day.

Lizzy's shadow looks kind of bumpy. Bottom left under wheel.

Looks like a big grasshopper.. Anywhere except mars, and people would be claiming it is a live insect. Another odd thing in that same image is up and on the left side, the rock with multiple spiky things protruding from it..

The things I have been seeing in mars images just don't make sense if I am to stick with currently accepted axioms.

I've spent the last eight or nine minutes just looking at the shadows on the rest of the objects in the picture. The rovers wheel, the shadows of all the rocks, and iz must say that the shadow on this thing is unique for the rocks in that picture. For it to cast such a long shadow it must have some height, and also the shadows from whatever shape the two ends are, curled and upright, seem to show a structure that is itself interesting. So it's a tallish little rock and our perspective isn't taking in its height. With things on either end of it (I think part of the "leg" is a separate rock). Nice find. I wish funbox were here to do his best with that marsmammal you found earlier.
