Ever since man has walked on the Moon, we’ve looked toward our red planet neighbor and, more importantly the possibility of alien life on it. However, ever since NASA sent the Curiosity Rover onto Mars, we’ve received no evidence of any creatures planning on attacking our planet for our precious resources.

Well, now that may no longer be true.

NASA released another boring picture of Mars rocks the other day, and at first it looked like more nothingness. But then several internet users saw something weird in the rocks. There appears to be a crab-like creature climbing on a rock formation. Here’s the pic:



And here’s a more zoomed in photo, as shown on Mandatory:

Mandatory also noticed this crab seems to look eerily similar to the “Facehugger” creature from the sci-fi/horror classic Alien:

Most “experts” are telling the public that this crab is actually just a rock that looks like a crab. But that’s exactly what the government would want you to think to avoid a panic over the impending alien invasion. At least we know there isn’t any proof that life has ever existed on Mars.

Oh shit…
