UFO hunter claims to have spotted an 'ancient tree stump' on Mars


If UFO hunters are to be believed, Mars is one of our solar system's most bustling ecosystems, full of wildlife and ancient history.

And a recent "discovery" made by a well-known alien enthusiast appears to support that theory.

Paranormal Crucible shared a YouTube video on April 20 showing what appears to be a tall, textured object in a Martian landscape.

"Intriguing object found by the curiosity rover, this time a possible tree stump," the caption read. "This object definitely looks out of place and in my opinion could be the petrified remnants of a Martian tree."

"Object is around 3 feet in height, and with numerous discoveries of plant and animal life on mars, it would be logical to assume, that a variety of tree either existed, or still exists on this enigmatic planet," the description continued.

Maybe the tree was part of the garden of the Martian king, whose "remains" were spotted by the same UFO hunter last year.

Or perhaps, as many YouTube commenters have suggested, it's just a rock.
