New Zealand surprises us again, this time with the remains of a giant penguin that was king of the ocean just after the disappearance of the dinosaurs. He measured 1.60 meters and weighed 80 kilos. We introduce you to Crossvallia waiparensis.
Scientists believe that after the extinction of dinosaurs, marine reptiles and giant fish, it was the giant penguins that reigned on land and sea. They were kings of the oceans for about 30 million years. But later, they were displaced by the large mammals.
