    "Centipede" on Mars in NASA Curiosity photo?

    I noticed this interesting object in a Mars Curiosity photo. It looks like a centipede or worm-like object. There are marks in the dirt that could coincide with the object's movement. Of course, it could just be a rock. I feel it's worth investigating. This photo was taken at the beginning of the mission. I don't have the SOL data.

    The red arrows I added to the photo point to marks/disturbances in the dirt and to objects that appear to have been moved or pushed. The black arrow points to the object of interest. I would like to know what people think?

    Moved from Introductions and Feedback to Space Exploration, with a redirect.

    Welcome to the forum, jeffcase - just moved your post here as a more reasonable location and where you're more likely to get responses.
    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    Looks like curiosity drove over a rock to create the depression and then kicked said rock to the side.

    Worm-sign!

    Or maybe wabbit twacks.

    (Seriously, it looks like rover tracks.)
