Does this incredible image prove iguanas beat humans to Mars? No, of course it doesn't, this is clearly a lump of oddly formed rock, but that hasn't stopped conspiracy theorists flying into a frenzy.

The dead creature was apparently spotted in a picture obtained from Nasa’s archives by UFO Sightings Daily.
