A penguin is older than a dinosaur! Scientists found fossils, dating back 60 million years. It means that an ancestor of the birds we see today survived the mass extinction of the dinosaurs. Waimanu manneringi stood upright and waddled like modern-day penguins, but was likely more awkward in the water. Some fossil penguins were much larger than any penguin living today, reaching 4.5 feet tall! This inspired us to make cute penguin cursors. Add these custom animal cursors to customize your mouse!
