Bill disparity and feeding strategies amongst fossil and modern penguins

Martin Chavez Hoffmeister
One of the most remarkable differences between Paleogene penguins and their living relatives is the shape and length of their beaks. Many of the Eocene and Oligocene penguins have a thin and elongated spear-like bill, which contrasts with the proportionally shorter and more robust bill of most living species.
