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.

What's cuter than a penguin? A penguin wearing a freakin' backpack -- that's what! 

Back in January of this year, penguins were brought in from a nearby aquarium in China to promote the Harbin Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival, the world's largest snow and ice festival. 

The adorable penguins waddled around in their individual backpacks and just like that, everything in the world brightened up for a moment.
