This is pretty cool.
Big, long billed and living in warm waters.



---------------------QUOTE-------------------
The fossilised remains of the animal, which lived some 36 million years ago, were found in what is today Peru.
At 1.5m (5ft) tall, the penguin looked quite different from its modern-day cousins, a report in PNAS journal says.

From the < BBC > site. Couple of other sites report this as well.
Article from the Guardian < here >.

Worse headline perhaps from USAToday

Roamed?
Paddled perhaps?

Yeah... I don't think the USA today writer gets it... Something about their plan was bad, all those calls to the Antarctic had roaming charges, so that's why they went extinct... Their bills were too big.

Yes.  Those roaming charges will kill you.

The Peru part is not unusual. As Kristine could tell you, there are penguins to this day in Ecuador.
