A Japanese blogger claims to have spotted a lizard running loose on the Martian landscape in a NASA photo. The blogger alerted the website, UFO Sightings Daily, and incredibly, the "discovery" of "life" on Mars has sparked frenzied speculation.
The photo of the Mars "lizard" shows what looks like a reptile with feet, tail and a head. Conspiracy theorists speculate it is either a lizard or a rodent of some sort.
The sighting of a "lizard" on the Martian surface has generated a theory that NASA could be conducting a scientific experiment by artificially planting life on the otherwise barren Red Planet.
However, in the original image captured by a camera on NASA's Curiosity Rover, which NASA posted on its website in March, the "lizard" looks like a rock lying lifeless on the ground (see photos below). But with the benefit of zoom, the presence of alien life is revealed.
Scott C. Warring, who manages UFO Sightings Daily, asked for readers' reactions while commenting: "This odd creature was discovered on Mars by a person in Japan in March. 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. Then again, is NASA placing animals from tiny cryogenic chambers inside the rover onto the surface of Mars to conduct tests?"

Zoom: Alien lizard on Mars?
So far, no one has suggested that the reptile might be one of Obama's shape-shifter guards. Digital Journal reported in March that the White House, responding to "reports" that Obama had hired "shape-shifting" reptilian alien Secret Service guards, said it was unable to afford the expense due to the circumstances of the sequester.
The reptile on the Martian terrain could be one of Obama's reptilian guards vacationing on Mars, now revealed by NASA cameras following a sudden and temporary malfunctioning of the "shape-shifting" technology that the alien uses to conceal its reptilian identity.
Digital Journal reported that Curiosity landed on Mars on August 6, 2012 and immediately beamed back its first color images that NASA processed into a video of the rover diving through the Martian atmosphere. The nuclear-powered six-wheel rover has, since landing, beamed back high resolution self-portraits and images of its Martian environment. It has also been carrying out explorations and tests in the Gale crater region of Mount Sharp in which it landed.
According to Digital Journal, Curiosity's investigations are designed to provide information about the possibility of ancient habitable conditions on the planet.
