There’s life on Mars — and it’s enormous!
NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander has transmitted a photograph of what appears to be a super-sized dinosaur standing menacingly on the surface of the Red Planet — and shocked scientists say the discovery has overturned “everything we thought we knew about extra-terrestrial life.”
The space agency has delayed releasing the stunning news to the public pending a full analysis of the available data. But Dr. Simon Wycoff, an astrobiologist serving as a consultant to the Phoenix project, has agreed to reveal what little is known about the humongous reptile and the implications of the staggering find.
In an exclusive interview with Weekly World News writer Garrett Hawley, Wycoff says the creature resembles the Earth dinosaur Tyrannosaurus Rex, but is at least three times larger than the ferocious predator.
WWN: Why is the dinosaur so much bigger than any dinosaur fossils found on Earth?
WYCOFF: The relative lack of gravity on Mars allowed the beast to grow so large. Earth’s stronger gravity would cause any creature that big to collapse under its own weight.
WWN: Is the dinosaur the only one of its kind?
WYCOFF: That’s highly unlikely. We assume they’ve been breeding there for millennia.
WWN: What do the dinosaurs eat?
WYCOFF: Each other. Members of their own kind would be their only source of nutrition. They are cannibals.
WWN: Is there any way to estimate their population?
WYCOFF: Not until we explore the planet. Even then, it will be difficult to get an exact count because of the lack of light and the uneven terrain of the Martian surface.
WWN: How did the dinosaurs get there?
WYCOFF: At this point, your guess is as good as mine. One theory is that microscopic living organisms were transported throughout the solar system by comets. On that account, life on Earth began when one of these comets deposited organic material on our planet after crashing into it. The same phenomenon could have occurred on Mars.
WWN: Dinosaurs became extinct on Earth 70 million years ago. Why have they survived on Mars?
WYCOFF: The dinosaurs were wiped off the face of the Earth by a massive asteroid impact. Apparently, Mars escaped a similar calamity.
WWN: President Bush has vowed to establish a human colony on Mars. What does this discovery do to that plan?
WYCOFF: It puts the kibosh on it, I should think. A human expedition to Mars would involve a maximum of six or seven astronauts. They wouldn’t make more than a tasty hors d’oeuvre for creatures this size. It would be folly to spend upwards of $50 billion to send humans to Mars just to have them eaten by a dinosaur. The American taxpayer would never stand for it.

There seems to be confusion on Mr Wycoff's part as to whether these Dinosaurs are living on the moon or Mars.
I still don’t understand how anyone could believe this article. What a sad day it is for the human race.
"The American taxpayer would never stand for it."
I'd gladly pay, and volunteer, to be the first human ever eaten by a dinosaur.
the dino-birds being called the " martian green jay " by some at nasa, do not appear to be more than mansize, though they're everywhere in nasa's rover photographs and must number in the millions. they have been very cleverly disected, altered, creatively added on to and disguised as rocks, hillsides or just plain air-brushed out by nasa's sophisticated comuter algorythms and lighting techniques. this is not only evident with many of distinct jay-headed shaped rocks but also with their very distinct tri-colour pattern of tourquise-blue, black, and white with eyes or an eye in the usual place. the computer program being used to mask the life discovered on mars leaves behind several computer generated artifacts such as two-birdheaded snake creatures and other anomolies that would tend to be accounted for only in a virtual reality setting. these computer shattered and reconfigured rover images share the same features(althuogh shattered and scattered) and indeed figure of the recently released picture (although a touch out of focus) of what seems to be a dino-bird similar in apperance to a large bluejay of less than 6 or 7 feet in height. i would imagine that the government and nasa are "breaking it to us gently" by slowly phaseing in the discover of life on mars for several good reseasons chief of which being responsibility ofcourse although if you pay attention to nasa's press releases or the off-handed remarks of nasa or some government officials, the writing seems to be pretty much on the wall in their minds as far as the find goes, and although secrecy is still the policy, bits of truth or even a good tip seem to be easier to come by these days. so patience…it's in the works!

How in heck can they survive without air?
mucho smart man
The can’t. This is a fake article. How did you even think this was real. I implore you to please go do actual research from credible sources on the topic of life on mars. Oh god, you are all idiots.
The dinosaurs on Mars might have went there to escape the disaster on Earth
Wow this is awesome …thanks for your wonderful interests… visit my web and listen to my music, you can also download free tracks
uh… i would like to see this picture of the "dino on mars"

Good article. Totally agree with him.
I AM AGREE.
wow cause u cant tell that this is photo-shopped at all!!!! like seriously… at least try and make it look realistic!!!
I know right…
All life on Mars died out centuries ago.
Yeah, they all just hopped into some space shuttles 70 million years ago. Simple
This is the most RIDICULOUS thing I have ever heard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you actually believe what this guy is saying you are nutso!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry to rain on your parade chipmunks but we haven’t even found developed bacteria!!!!! How on earth would there be DINOSAURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the stupidest thing I have ever heard!
