Thanks so much everyone! This is SO exciting! I never ever thought I would actually find a fossil penguin and then on top of that to have it win Invertebrate FOTM is just crazy!! :Jumping:
I'm looking forward to being able to update everyone when the species is figured out.

I thought there were some really good other entries this month, I do love me some articulated vertebrae @SomethingIsFishy and @Jared C!

Congrats @mamlambofor this incredible penguin fossil. It’s already not a common fossil, and in addition you had to have a sharp eye to see it ! Nice prep too.
