These days, just about anything involving space and animals will go viral. The Huffington Post reports:
Is that a rat... on Mars?!
Yes, according to a theory from one determined man in Japan who recently scoured dozens of NASA photos taken by the space agency's Mars Curiosity rover. A post on UFO Sightings Daily shows the "Mars rat," which appears to be a creature with legs and a tail among rocks on the planet.
As the blog notes, the figure "seems to resemble a rodent but also may be a lizard."
The alleged Mars rat should not be confused with a similar sighting first pointed out in December: An image taken by the Curiosity rover at the "Rocknest" site in September shows a rodent-like figure that most closely resembles a squirrel. However, as UFO Sightings Daily notes, that observation may have been staged by NASA as part of an experiment.
Do you see a rat?
