Giant Penguin of Clearwater Beach
rating: 0+x

Basic Information

The Giant Penguin of Clearwater Beach (and later, of Suwannee River) in Florida was a hoax perpetuated in 1948 by local pranksters who made huge penguin feet out of iron, which was revealed on April 11, 1988. While the giant penguin tracks were not the only sightings, the others - which claimed that the penguin was 4.5 meters tall and had "alligator-like feet" were also hoaxes… probably.


Game and Story Use

  • A hoax, or a clumsy cover-up?
  • Now imagine the penguin equivalent of a terror-bird - a giant, carnivorous penguin. Which, come to thing of it, would not be anything like the weirdest predator to stalk the earth during comparatively recent history.
