I found this interesting so I though I would share it with everybody here.

Elephant On Mars Sculpted By Lava Flow

Elephant on Mars Sculpted by Lava Flow

The dried flood of lava over the surface of Mars has created the spitting image of the eye and trunk of an elephant."This is a good example of the phenomena 'pareidolia,' where we see things (such as animals) that aren't really there," University of Arizona planetary geologist Alfred McEwen wrote in an update posted on the university's HiRISE website.

That is cool.
At first I thought the "eye" was the volcanic crater,but I see now the Lava flow came from the left of the image.
Maybe the "eye" is a huge boulder?

Flag for you for calling it a geological formation,not an actual elephant!

How did mars know what an elephant looked like? I smell a conspiracy here somewhere. I wonder if the elephants of earth are really Martians in disguise?

Saw that earlier on the news that is awesome. Just goes to show how the human brain works. If it looks familiar then we tend to notice. Just look at the clouds at times.
