Earlier this month, a new discovery was made by alien hunters on Mars which points towards the existence of a Martian tree stump, believed to be ancient.

The astronomers had revealed earlier that ancient Mars was more habitable than we previously believed it to be, and this tree stump is being estimated to be strong evidence about the Red Planet being livable by the conspiracy theorists.

The reason why Mars was believed to be more habitable than previously assumed by the astronomers is because of the discovery of the presence of a mineral called whitlockite, which was found in the Martian meteorites examined by a group of researchers. This mineral comprised hydrogen which is a life-building matter; this revealed that there was presence of more water on ancient Mars at a point of time.

"This could be an ancient tree stump on Mars," Scott C Waring stated on his blog on UFO Sightings Daily, as quoted by The Sun.

"It would be logical to assume that a variety of tree either existed or still exists on this enigmatic planet," Waring added.

The alien hunters strongly believe that this ancient tree stump proves that the Red Planet supported life once.

A YouTube channel named Paranormal Crucible stated in it's video description: "Intriguing object found by the curiosity rover, this time a possible tree stump. 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."
