Martian rover spots alien lizard on Mars -- or is it just a rock?

This article was contributed by the STOMP Team. The Martian rover Curiosity has sent back a controversial picture containing something that has conspiracy theorists excited -- a large, long-tailed alien lizard. Or is it just a rock? The supposed creature is seen in the backdrop of a picture, hidden amidst a rock-strewn plain. From the picture, the 'lizard' appears to have a long tail and a stubby, blunt snout. It superficially resembles a monitor lizard, but has a much shorter neck and carries its body higher off the ground. Authorities have maintained that the 'lizard' is really just an oddly-shaped rock, but that hasn't deterred conspiracy theorists from debating the supposed animal. Pictures 1-6 show the Martian 'lizard', while the rest are of previous alien sightings, most of which have been debunked by science.
