RODENTS on MARS! The announcement NASA should have made?
A member emailed this in to us today and it's really amazing and strange.
It looks like a cute rodent on Mars. Note it's lighter color upper and lower eyelids, it's nose and cheek areas, it's ear, front leg and stomach.
Looks similar to a squirrel camouflaged in the stones and sand by its colors.
This might have been the big historical announcement that NASA was suppose to make, however they decided life on Mars was a secret worth keeping since they don't want China or Russia to beat America to Mars.
So they possibly shut up about it and can take their time to Mars this way. The scientist jumped the gun and told the public about a major historical discovery on Mars... this must be what he was talking about. No?
Or is it just Pareidolia ( 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.

This one popped up here several weeks ago (October 25) from the guy who originally spotted it (I think) General discussion was along the lines of it being a rock but the photo was real.. which i agree with..

Nah! Looks very cut and pasty to me! and besides i don't think that Mars is that hospitable as to support small mammals just chillin by a rock! I mean comeon what would it eat all of those plants and insects on the red planet!
