Penguinus Maximus: Thawing

This creature isn’t entirely fictional, other than maybe the thawing back to life part, his size is exaggerated a bit, and I don’t believe Penguinis Maximus was an official scientific name. But there were in fact prehistoric penguins. From fossil findings they stood nearly six feet tall and weighed in at up to 300 pounds.
