Scientists Just Discovered That Penguins Used To Be Human-Sized

Penguins aren't exactly formidable creatures, are they? Although Emperor penguins can reach up to 4 feet 2 inches, they always seem super friendly and cute. Now imagine a penguin the same height as you. That changes things. Penguins the size of humans... the idea sounds like it comes from science fiction. But it actually just comes from science. It was recently discovered that giant penguins used to exist. We are not kidding.

Fossils of a prehistoric creature called the Siberian Unicorn, or Elasmotherium sibiricum, have been found in the Pavlodar region of Kazakhstan.  Most depictions of this animal show it looking kind of like a cross between a rhinoceros and a donkey rather than a noble horse.

Though the Siberian Unicorn is decidedly less majestic than you might expect, this find is still pretty big news. Scientists thought that the species died out at least 350,000 years ago but that's not the case.  These new fossils place it at around 29,000 years ago according to a study published in the American Journal of Applied Sciences.

Have you ever wanted to see a 99 million-year-old spider penis? I bet you thought that wasn't even an option but here it is, preserved in amber:


Most spiders use a modified leg to procreate but the harvestman, also known as a Daddy Longlegs, has a special attachment for that sort of thing that is normally hidden inside the body of the spider. This ancient Daddy Longlegs is unique, he is the first to be found in such a 'passionate' stance and the shape and size of his baby maker has prompted researchers to declare a new family of arachnids based on this finding.
