In New Zealand archaeologists regularly find fossilized remains of giant birds.
For this reason, scientists working on the next excavations, were confident that have discovered the remains of the extinct Haast eagle, but when it was dug out of the shoulder joints and leg bones, it became clear that this is a completely different species of animals.
The paleontological discovery was a penguin who lived here over 60 million years ago. The bird lived in the Paleocene epoch.
New Zealand penguins are not inferior to human growth. For clarity, the specialists of the Canterbury Museum has created a three-dimensional model.
It should be noted that animal at that time practiced primarily swimming, but because upright it was much later.
