When NASA scientists recently uncovered organisms in Mono Lake, California subsisting on arsenic-rich mud, they quickly turned their attention to Titan, Saturn's moon.
"Titan has conditions quite similar to those of Mono Lake, which was previously considered inhospitable to life. Titan may in fact may be the home to organisms, and even cultures and social structures, which thrive in a highly toxic environment," said Dr. O.D.Ebby, astrobiologist and lead project scientist.
Dr. Ebby stated that it was highly unlikely that Titans have migrated to Earth and walk among us.
"To sustain themselves, Titans would have to find a way to stay immersed in a highly toxic environment.
"Also, if they could take human form their presence would evidenced by the constant spewing of poison as part of their biological functions.
"And I suspect that they would appear unusually gaunt from living on an arsenic diet."
