Existing data on flora and fauna of other planets are based only on scientific hypotheses. Scanning cameras of the VENERA-9 landers were intended to produce a general notion about the planet’s surface and did not anticipate looking for possible inhabitants of Venus. The panorama of the planet’s solid surface was transmitted historically for the first time from the surface of Venus by the VENERA-9 lander in 1975 and repeated by the VENERA-13, -14 in 1982. Data on some results of the analysis of the content of re-processed panorama of the VENERA-9 and VENERA-13, -14 landers are presented. The low noise of the VENERA-9 data allowed allocating a relatively large object of an unusual regular structure. Its complex shape having terramorphic features and its structure suggest that the object may be a real habitant of the planet. It is not excluded that another similar object observed was damaged during the VENERA-9 landing. From the evidence of their very slow movement and position of some other similar objects it is concluded that the physical action of the Venusian fauna may be much slower than that of the Earth’ fauna. Another question arises is what liquid stuffs could be used by life in the conditions of the high temperature oxygenless atmosphere of the waterless planet.
