When Giant Penguins Roamed the Earth
Scientists have the “skinny” on an ancient species of 4.5-foot-tall penguins that were slightly slimmer than our flightless friends today.
Although the bones were discovered over four decades ago, scientists only recently pieced the bones together. The result was a skinny penguin, taller than any existing bird, with an elongated beak specialized for hunting.
To see what these penguins might have looked like, make sure to check out an artist’s rendition in the Nat Geo article.
