We don’t usually get too excited over fossil finds, but we think it’s very important that scientists have discovered the existence of the Mega Penguin–aka the Colossus Penguin, which lived almost 40 million years ago and was surely the most incredible penguin of all time. This thing stood about 6 feet and 7 inches and was clearly capable of waging some real havoc along the ancient Antarctic peninsula.
We’re learning all this courtesy of some recent finds from a lady scientist who probably looks a lot like Kari Wuhrer or some other hot babe from a Syfy movie. Learn all about it here. We’d like to write more about it, but we have to get to work on our screenplay before some other hack hits up the Lifetime network with a more sensitive side to the story.
