Penguin attack



  • Nordenskjoeld's Giant Penguin was a species of extinct penguin that stood 5 feet 6.9 inches tall (1.7 meters) and weighed 198 pounds (90 kilograms). Fossils have been found both in Antarctica and Zealand. The more modest Icadyptes Salasi penguin stood 5 feet tall (1.5 meters) and lived in Peru. Its skull can seen at the top of the above picture.

Talk about March of the Penguins. Those would have been scary.

I never thought of penguins as scary... but if I came face to face with one who was nearly as tall as I and outweighed me... that would be pretty scary indeed!

I'm pretty short, so it would be especially intimidating.
