Hey everyone. I found this worm-like creature in a sand dune near Curiosity rover today. The photo is from Jan 29, but posted today on their site. The worm has armored segments along its body. I cannot see any legs, and looks like a burrowing creature. This is a photo of the die of the steep area of the sand dune. The sand dune sides are smooth and made perfect, and this tells me this worm creature burrowed to the edge of the cliff and turned back into the dune so it wouldn't fall. Excellent photo, for black and white. NASA gets color photos, but does have infrared and other filters on Curiosity. This photo of a armored worm is 100% proof that life, even though small, still exists on Mars.
