A science blogger with a keen sense of vision claims to have spotted a lizard meandering around Mars.

The unknown spotter is from Japan and alerted the website, UFO Sightings Daily, of the unusual sight.

The rather unbelievable and completely unsubstantiated claim has caused some excitable conspiracy theorists to fear that the NASA could be planting life on the planet for scientific testing.

"This odd creature was discovered on Mars by a person in Japan in March," a posting by Scott C. Waring, who runs the UFO website, read.

"With water existing on Mars in small amounts, its possible to find such desert animals wandering around...although very rare mind you."

"Then again, is NASA placing animals from tiny cyogenic chambers inside the rover onto the surface of Mars to conduct tests?" the posting continued.

The San Francisco Chronicle commented that in the original NASA photo, the object appeared just as a rock while the photo appeared on Waring's website appearing with legs and a tail.

Curiosity landed on Mars on August 6, 2012, and has spent its time investigating and analyzing the landscape and geology of the red planet.

The $2.5 billion rover was sent to the planet to assess if the planet most like Earth has or ever had the chemical ingredients and environments for microbial life.
