• A UFO expert spotted a live alien creature on Mars
  • The photo of the alleged creature was taken by the Curiosity rover
  • The alleged alien life form resembles a porcupine

A UFO expert claimed to have spotted a live alien creature in a photo taken by NASA on Mars. Based on the photo, the alleged creature is slightly shaped like a porcupine.

The strange sighting was made by Scott Waring of the UFO-centered blog ET Data Base. He came across the image if the alleged alien life form while browsing through Gigapan, a website that offers high-resolution images of Mars.

The particular photo that caught Waring’s attention was taken by NASA’s Curiosity rover. According to the details of the photo, it was taken on Sol 1267, which is roughly equivalent to Feb. 28, 2016, on Earth.

Similar to the other images taken by Curiosity, the photo features a vast landscape on Mars. Near the lower-right portion of the photo is a rock that’s shaped like a log. On this rock is an oddly-shaped object with a color that’s very different from its surroundings.

Based on the appearance of the object, Waring said that it could be a living creature on Mars. He said that it could be some kind of creature that resembles certain animals on Earth.

“The strange object has a color that doesn’t match anything around it. No to mention its strange porcupine-like shape,” Waring wrote in a blog post. “From the thickness of its parts and the size I would guess that this is some kind of living a groundhog pushed back into the crevice of this structure.”

As noted by Waring, the alleged Martian creature has a couple of distinct features such as a head, hears and a nose. Due to these features, Waring noted that it is most likely a live animal-like creature instead of an inanimate object such as a mineral deposit on Mars.

“It’s clearly living from the shape of it. I just don't believe a deposit of copper or gold might appear like this...especially because metals have a more reflective surface,” the UFO expert stated. “I can even see what looks like a rodent head, black nose and little ears. This looks like an animal.”
