The Aquarium #12 by Julio-Lacerda The Aquarium #12 by Julio-Lacerda
The Peruvian Red-bellied Penguin, one of the giant south american penguins, is easily recognizable for it's long beak and reddish-brown belly. It is more agressive than usual for penguins, and it's big size (up to 1.5m) makes it a rather dangerous animal to handle.

thanks to ~JWArtwork for suggesting me to do "those enormous extinct penguins" :D

Wow this is incredible! I really didn't know this was fake for a second, and that extinct penguins had been brought back, and put in public aquariums! *sigh* Some day...

It's one of my favorite images of fossil penguins... I really hope to see others in the future

I love the water distortion at the surface! It really lends to the idea that we're looking at this thing through aquarium glass.

I must admit I though you improvised the color. Silly me- you're scientifically accurate! :D
