Did NASA Send This Ground Squirrel To Mars?

Guess what people on the Internet have discovered? Life on Mars! But it is not, according to current theories, Martian. It’s a … ground squirrel, or perhaps a regular Martian rock that looks a little like a ground squirrel from a certain angle and a certain light. The very large NASA image from the rover Curiosity is here, so you can spend the next hour or so looking for Waldo the Martian Ground Squirrel, or you can just accept the conclusion of this UFO blog:

A lot of people are emailing me saying that this squirrel was part of a NASA experiment to test how long it would live on the surface of Mars and I do believe this does sound like something they might do. Why would they not tell us about it? Because the squirrel would be expected to die eventually and that would get PETA to fight against them in a court of law.

But what kind of squirrel did NASA maybe send to Mars, where there is apparently an earthly atmosphere? We believe it is a common round-tailed ground squirrel of the California desert … which is where the Mars Curiosity prototypes were tested. Maybe there was never a Curiosity mission to Mars! Maybe Stanley Kubrick made the YouTube video of the mysterious rock rodent. It’s a far more entertaining concept than Alex Jones screaming about guns, anyway.
