Alien 'crab monster' (probably) spotted on Mars

Not to alarm you or anything but mankind could soon be in the sweaty death grip of a thousand alien face-huggers.

Snapped by NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover, a new image purports to show an extra-terrestrial creature resembling those facially fond creatures from Aliens. And if that weren’t terrifying enough, it appeared in a cave mouth, meaning there could be thousands of the little critters hiding across the Red Planet.

First surfacing on Facebook group ‘Journey to the Surface of Mars’, page editors - whose slogan is ‘they will not tell the truth about MARS’ - posted the picture and enlarged the image for a closer look at the beast.

OK, so maybe we’re exaggerating a tad – you can come out of the fridge now - but even one scientist has commented on the irregular find. Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer and director for SETI (basically a full-time alien hunter) said: ‘Those that send them to me are generally quite excited, as they claim that these frequently resemble SOMETHING you wouldn't expect to find on the rusty, dusty surface of the Red Planet.”

Even so, Shostak has also warned that it is most probably just a glitch on the camera or a trick of the eye, calling it basic human instinct to see patterns where none exist. Or have the Pentagon got to him too?

It’s not the first Rover-led conspiracy to come from Mars and it won’t be the last. But of course there’s only one way to know if it’s real:

Get your ass to Mars.
