Giant penguins, standing over 5 feet tall and weighing more than 220 pounds, may have roamed Earth some 60 million years ago, according to new research. Scientists on Tuesday said they discovered fossils of an ancient penguin that may have stood 5 foot 7 — nearly the height of the average American male — and weighed about 225 pounds, according to a Nature Communications research report. It would dwarf the emperor penguin, the biggest penguin today, which is less than 4 feet tall.
