NASA Curiosity Rover Finds Rat on Mars?

SF News – A picture taken by the NASA’s Curiosity rover from Mars surface has some space and extra-terrestrial life enthusiasts cheering and wondering if they are actually looking at a Martian rat.

The picture shows, among Mars’ orange rocky surface, a rodent-like object.  The squirrel looking image has what could be imagined as a mouth and the eye.

“Its a cute rodent on Mars. Note it’s lighter color upper and lower eyelids, it’s nose and cheek areas, its ear, its front leg and stomach. Looks similar to a squirrel camouflaged in the stones and sand by its colors,” write a space enthusiast blogger on his website.

The picture was taken in September of last year and is posted on NASA’s website.
