Giant penguin fossils discovered

A fossil recently discovered in Peru suggest that penguins roughly the size of a small human existed about thirty million years ago. Lead study author Julia Clarke said:

"Despite I. salasi's unusual height, its beak is disproportionately large"

I read this story a while ago. The disproportionately long beak suggested that it was a forager, using the elongated beak to reach both trees and shrubbery for the green part of its diet and picked the flesh off of it's fishy prey as opposed to swallowing it whole.

While the theory of spontaneous evolution is without hard proof (having never whitnessed spontaneous beneficial mutation causing an evolution of a species), there is infinite evidence demonstrating that each of todays species has evolved from another more ancient one.
