Giant Tropical Penguins!

Scarey fellows.

5ft (1.5m) Penguins have been discovered in Peru!

Well, there fossils anyway. The last time they roamed the tropics was apparently 36 million years ago. But saying that Giant Tropical Penguins have been discovered on the Incan Plains sounds so much better :p

Tropical Giant Penguin Discovered (BBC News Online; Tuesday 26th June 2007)

Just look at the size of it's head compared to the regular, cooler-living, Penguin!!!

Reminiscent of the dreaded "Dire Penguins" from the Age of Wonders: Shadowmagic game.

And people thought that Polar Bears in Lost were just plain silly.

Who's laughing now?
