9 posts in this topic

Argentine experts have discovered the fossils of a two-meter (6.5 foot) tall penguin that lived in Antarctica 34 million years ago.

Paleontologists find 6.5-foot tall penguin fossils in Antarctica

That is one big penguin, not the kind you would want to cuddle.

Awesome. I wonder what made these animals grow so much larger than the mammals we have today. I dont buy that it just was that there were more food around then.

Besides a 2m penguin there was another crazy bird called Demon-Duck Of Doom. It was around 2,5 to 3m tall (8 to almost 10 feet).

Despite its name it wasn't a duck you wanna mess with. The birdie was carnivorous and pretty fast.

Some might get this kind of image in front of you when you hear the name>>>

But it was more like the Emu, but much much bigger.>>>

there was a time when insects were huge, due to higher o2 level, I believe food can be a reason, specific plant or animal that they ate all their lives, or condition to which they were exposed to all their life, altered their size, what was it exactly i have no clue.

Were they blind by any chance? (At the Mountains of Madness reference)

Yeah, that's a good question. Why were there many supersized creatures back then, but not so much now.

One joke goes down the drain....

A visibly shaken man staggers into a bar. He asks the bartender

for a double Jack Daniel's. After downing the first drink, he

proceeds to down two more doubles.

The bartender becomes concerned and asks the man what is the

problem. The man mumbles that it's not important, that no one can

help him anyway. The man then orders a fourth drink, and again the

bartender asks if there is anything he can do.

This time the mans says, "Yeah, there is something you can do.

Answer me a question. How big is a penguin?"

The bartender holds his hand about three feet off the ground and

says, "About this high. Why?"

"Damn, I think I just ran over a nun."

That's a funny story Abramelin maybe it really was a penguin instead of a nun.

At 6.5 foot tall, you'd have a job to p...p...pick up that penguin!
