Giant penguins the size of people

22 posts in this topic

Imagine a world where giant penguins the size of people strut around gobbling up fish.

Well, it turns out this isn't as unrealistic as you might think because colossal penguins once stalked a small island near Antarctica.

Newly unearthed fossils show that a species of penguin called Palaeeudyptes Klekowskii measuring 6ft 6ins high and weighing around 18 stone (115 kilos) existed around 37 to 40 million years ago.

I wonder what sort of fabulous animals Paul Prudhomme could have stuffed inside those giant penguins before deep frying.....Seals, otters,squid,more penguins, polar bear cubs...thus creating the peng-eal-ott-uid-uin, deep fried in peanut oil and served with crawdads.

However, 'stalking' may not quite be le mot juste: 'waddling with intent', perhaps? :P
