A Bear on Mars

A Bear on Mars! This image taken by NASA looks a bit like a bear’s face on the red planet.

There’s a hill with a V-shaped collapse structure (the nose), two craters (the eyes), and a circular fracture pattern (the head). The circular fracture pattern might be due to the settling of a deposit over a buried impact crater.

Maybe the nose is a volcanic or mud vent and the deposit could be lava or mudflows? Maybe just grin and bear it.
