Throwback Thursday-Pathfinders airbag turtle
Thu Dec 10, 2015 7:47pm

Pathfinders airbag was designed to completely retract under the lander, but it was caught on the rocks and failed to retract. There is nothing mounted on the airbag and if it had retracted as designed the airbag would not even be visible in this image. I believe the airbag was covering this creatures burrow so he chewed through it and built another shell entrance to the burrow on top of the airbag. The white shell building material is visible in this image coming out of the creatures mouth.
