Lovecraft Right Again: Giant Prehistoric Penguins

Meet Inkayacu paracasensis, the Water King. Fossils from this 36 million year old penguin remarkably show us its color, a pattern of brown and gray rather than the black and white of modern penguins.

Possibly alien fossils, hidden anomalous mountains, strange lifeforms reviving from the ice, and now giant penguins. It seems like there should be a Moore's Law for how inevitably Lovecraft's creations come to life in the real world.
