Looking at an image snapped by NASA’s Curiosity rover on Mars, UFO enthusiasts believe the might have spotted a rodent or a lizard — or something else with legs and a tail — among the rocks.

Posted on UFO Sightings Daily by Scott Waring, a “UFOlogist” who runs the website, the description says the “odd creature” was discovered in March by someone in Japan.

Here are a few of the shots pointing out the object:

Waring went on to note that “this animal was not the first to be discovered in NASA photos but is in a long line of strange creatures.”

“Remember the last one we reported that was very similar to a squirrel [...]? Well this one also seems to resemble a rodent but also may be a lizard. With water existing on Mars in small amounts, its possible to find such desert animals wandering around…although very rare mind you.”

Or, Waring wonders if NASA might be “placing animals from tiny cyogenic chambers inside the rover onto the surface of Mars to conduct tests?”
