Oh my gosh!!! It's Bigfoot on Mars!!!! Not so much...

Does this thing look like Bigfoot. Yes. It does LOOK like Bigfoot, but actually, it isn't really what you think it is . The photo was taken by Spirit, one of NASA's Mars rovers. But, there remains a question still lingering in the air, what is that thing? Well, sorry to disappoint you, but the unknown thing is actually just a rock. A 15 ft. naturally sculpted rock (at least according to Spirit's picture it is.) The only reason you think this thing is Bigfoot is because of a psychological phenomenon called Pareidolia. Pareidolia is when our minds try to figure out something that you can't quite make out, but have a hunch what it is.
