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

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