Recently the world has been taken aback by a strange claim made by UFO enthusiasts. According to reports, these people are claiming that they have spotted yet again another impossible creature on the Red Planet -- a lizard.

The people who have seen the photo have been dubbing the lizard as a "martian reptile." But is there truth to this claim? Below is some information we know about the "martian reptile:"

Conspiracy theorists from Alien Art TV were the first ones to share the news. According to them, the lizard was spotted next to a rock on the Red Planet.

The Sun reported that the photos showing the strange creature was taken by the Mars Curiosity Rover. The reptile could be a proof that there existed life on Mars, Joe White, from Alien Art TV, explains:

"It seems to have a beak to the left and tiny horns on top. The eye, head and neck look reptilian but at this size it is hard to tell. It also looks like it has a shell and possible limbs. Perhaps it was frozen and preserved when the atmosphere was destroyed."

White also said there is a possibility that the lizard is just a rock, referring to other reports saying that ancient walled city have been spotted on Mars.

Daily Mail notes that this is not the first time a lizard has been seen on Mars, citing that in 2013, eagle-eyed netizens have also allegedly spotted an iguana. Scot Warring of UFO Sightings Daily posted a photo of the iguana, which was taken in NASA's archives.

"This is not the first animal found on Mars, actually there have been about 10-15 to date," Warring wrote.

Weird discovery on Mars is nothing but new. As mentioned by International Business Times, a chair-like object on the Red Planet was allegedly spotted by a conspiracy theorist from Britain this November.
