The Albino penguins (Aptenodytes albus) are a species of penguin described by explorer William Dyer, as standing six-feet-tall, making them larger than even the Emperor Penguin, making it the tallest and heaviest of all living penguin species. The modern Albino Penguins discovered by Dyer and Danforth in Antarctic mountains near the Elder Thing city are concluded through sculptures to be descendants of archaic penguins bred by the Elder Things. When Antarctica became glaciated, the penguins retreated to a heated underground abyss, although years of evolution in these depths "destroyed their pigmentation and atrophied their eyes to mere useless slits."
