The latest in a long line of impossible objects sighted on Mars is a rock in the shape of a T. rex skull.


Eagle-eyed observers claim to have found a lot of strange things on the Red Planet over the last few years including a human hand, a gerbil and even Bigfoot, but in this latest pareidolia exercise one person has spotted something that may trump them all - the skull of a Tyrannosaurus rex.

I think 'Eagle-eyed observers' roughly translates as avid LSD users in this case...

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

The only rock I see that could be a look-alike is a rock that looks like a snake head, not T-Rex.  Imaginations are great, but whoever saw the T-Rex needs to take or get off his meds.

the only thing i could put an image to is on the upper right, looks like someone put rocks in the form of a 'round' house with a flat roof :)

i find the images of mars wonderful and all, but i really do not seem to see all these special images others see. It is almost like pple are forcing images out of things in order to convince others of things.

It kinda looks to me like that big Momma Alien from the Aliens movie, but you really have to be stretching the imagination to think it is anything more than an interesting shaped rock - it ain't no fossil, that is for sure.

LOL.  I saw this and I'm like am I nuts? Evidently not, because I don't see a T Rex either.  Whew! :)

I could tell which one they were talking about.  The Huffington Post article showed an example that couldn't have been a T Rex skull.  I don't think it was thought to be true and was just for fun.  Headlines can be so deceiving sometimes, but I think UM is running out of material to print.

My "Eagle Eye" observation skills see only a pile of rocks. Sorry if I shattered anyone's hopes of a Martian Jurassic Park. What's the magic word?? Pareidolia.

The skull shaped rock is interesting, there are even a couple rocks laying around the scene shaped like ribs, and table rock is curious, but most interesting is the small furry thing almost dead center of the img.
