Elephant found on Mars!

There may not be any green men on Mars, but there sure is an elephant there! The image below is actually of the dried flood of lava over the Elysium Planitia volcanic region of Mars, as captured by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

This is a good example of the phenomena ‘pareidolia,’ where we see things (such as animals) that aren’t really there.
