Have anybody else got that impression off the razorback when they saw the species illustration?
[spoiler]That this thing is clearly bioengineered? I mean, look at those struts at which his "eyes" reside, there is NO way such geometrical structure could evolved on it's own. That thing is a cyborg.[/spoiler]

[spoiler]I disagree. You can find structures just as complex on insects, so why not something larger?

Also, by your logic, our own brains must be artificial as well. They're the most complex single object in the known universe.[/spoiler]

After just over 22000 meters travelled and 555 photos I need help to complete my list.

Any hints where I can find the Razorback and Bulbmoss would be really appreciated.

I think I have completed all tasks (currently 40) but I'm not sure about all awards. I have the following 10 awards
[spoiler]
  • Score 95% or higher on your entrance exam
  • Invited a colleague to participate
  • Take your first panorama photo
  • Travel as far as light does in one microsecond (300m)
  • Take your first infrared photo
  • Tagged 3 different species in the same image
  • Travel as far as the Mars Spirit rover (7.73 km)
  • Scheduled a photo to be taken on Mae Jemisonís birthday (Oct. 17)
  • Travel as far as the Voyager 1 space probe does every second (17.043 km)
  • One of your photos was selected as a highlight by the science team
[/spoiler]

Is there anything else I'm missing?

@KathAveara
[spoiler]I'm not talking about complexity, I'm talking about overall shape. It is very contrast with overall body lines and color, have no other similar structures anywhere on it's body, almost like it was jammed in creature's head. Other motobionts have no similar structures either. The difference between this and brains is that brains are squishy, gray, and definitely organic. Even if these things would be analogs of horns of some sort, horns are too organic in their shape and color. This one is square, straight, have hole in it's base and looks metallic in texture.

does that looks like a natural object to you? Nature doesn't produce square bones.

[spoiler]Oops, I thought you were talking about the eyes. My bad.

Yes, it looks natural to me. Just because something doesn't happen here on Earth is the worst reason in the universe for something not happening on another planet. I mean, seriously. I recall a story that the best candidate for life on Mars (at the time) was rejected on that ground that it resembled nothing like life on Earth (it was later proven to be an artifact of the methods used for examining the object). The moral of the story is that you must throw out all preconceptions about what is possible and what is not before you dive into exobiology.

That aside, the structure looks remarkably like the stirrup bone in the human inner ear, just without the base. The stirrup bone also has a hole in the middle, half of the bone is roughly square (more square than the eyestalk!) and is much tinier. There are other square-ish bones in your body, too. Some of them are even relatively cuboid in shape. They're called molar teeth. I can think of bones with holes in them - the major one is called a skull, and is full-on hollow![/spoiler]
