ALIEN hunters believe they have made the find of a lifetime after discovering what they perceive to be the skull of a giant extraterrestrial on Mars.
Conspiracy theorists have claimed to have discovered the remains of a gigantic species which once resided on Mars. The large object is said to be the skull of an alien, which measures at least half a metre across, with the teeth still intact.
Prominent UFO hunter Scott C Waring made the extraordinary claim, stating that it is evidence of a past species on the Red Planet.
Mr Waring made the find after browsing through images from NASA, and believes “minerals” fossilised the ancient ‘skull’.
The alien enthusiast wrote on his blog ET Database: “Today I found an alien skull. It’s a large skull about half a meter across and has fierce looking long teeth.
“The jaw area is larger than humans and indicates that it probably had a thick neck area. I have to admit I have found a lot of faces, but this one is unique and unlike the others.
“It doesn’t look like a sculpture, but more like a fossilized skull. Such things could still remain on Mars if minerals have fossilised it.”
However, sceptics and NASA would say the skull and other similar findings are just the effects of pareidolia – a psychological phenomenon when the brain tricks the eyes into seeing familiar objects or shapes in patterns or textures such as a rock surface.
This would mean the Martian ‘skull’ is likely just a rock in a familiar shape.
Another recent finding which supposedly supports the argument of life on Mars was that of a large black rock which looked like a fossil.
Mr Waring wrote on his blog: “While looking at the front page of the Mars Science Laboratory website, I noticed that they placed a photo with a huge black fossil right on the freaking front page!
“How could anyone who has any experience at ancient fossils and artifacts have even possibly have missed that?
“NASA really doesn’t care about finding life, or proving that life once existed on other planets.
“They only want to drip feed the public boring science facts to satisfy the public’s curiosity. Its called the trickle down theory and NASA perfected it.

“There is no doubt in my mind that this is a ancient fossil.”
Mr Waring has also urged his followers to search for alien artifacts on Mars, stating: “Searching through Mars photos for details and artifacts that NASA has missed is very fun.
“I am really surprised most people never try and thus never truly believe its possible.”
