As the title suggests, this photo was taken by the Mars Opportunity Rover, and right off the bat you can see why it got so much attention to say the least.
This four-legged animal turned up out of nowhere and as it brushed past the camera experts couldn’t help but compare it to a bear from our planet.
Of course, we know that this is virtually impossible, but it is interesting to see if such similarities did occur between life on Mars and life on Earth.
We know that for the most part, the aliens that lived on Mars were humanoid so why wouldn’t creatures similar to bears actually live on Mars too?
The photograph itself is quite good too, unlike most others out there you can clearly see its outline and the fact that it isn’t just a random camera glitch too. Of course, there were some skeptics that called this just another typical case of the pareidolia effect but that’s inconsequential, to say the least as we could give these people an actual alien being and they’d still find reasons to complain at the end of the day.
A lot of experts have stated that this could actually be one of the last remnants of the Red Planet although that’s very unlikely considering just how many encounters we found so far to this day on Mars.
So, which is it? Is it our imagination or is there more to this picture than meets the eye?
