The fossil remains of the largest penguin species on the planet were unearthed in Antarctica.

The fossils belonged to a colossal 6-foot, 8-inch penguin that weighed 250 pounds and lived approximately 37 million years ago.

Because of its size, this species has been dubbed the “Colossus penguin.”

Scientists were able to estimate the size of this giant bird by comparing and scaling sizes of bones to modern-day penguins. (The largest penguin species alive today is the emperor penguin, measuring about 4 feet tall and weighing around 100 pounds.)
