Never say never. But a photo like this could be either.

I suppose its possible that the picture is that of a petrified worm, but wouldn’t that also entail that since animal life arose, then there should be a great deal of plant life around too? Maybe we will find some pretties with Martian leaf imprints in them :D :D

As much as I wanted to vote yes, I voted for inclusions. What's the old saying: Extra-ordinary claims require extra-ordinary evidence?

I vote no reluctantly. Doesn't look convincing to me but this is one time I would be happy to be wrong. :wink:

Show me 2, or maybe 3, or 4, or 300... of them. More than one would would strongly fuel the speculation. :-?
