Precambrian Subantarctic Mollusc Superpredator by TrollMans Precambrian Subantarctic Mollusc Superpredator by TrollMans

The chinstrap penguin (Pygoscelis antarcticus) is a species of flightless seabird native to the coasts of southern South America, Antarctica and some subantarctic islands, with occasional sightings from New Zealand and South Africa. It feeds mainly on small aquatic animals like fish, krill and squid, which it spends long periods out in the ocean diving after; its insulating coat of feathers and thick blubber helping to protect against the cold while foraging. The chinstrap penguin returns to land in order to breed and raise young, constructing rock nests along beaches to lay eggs in, sometimes forming colonies hundreds of thousands strong. Being relatively large birds (reaching around four to five kilograms in weight), adults generally have few predators to fear on land. 

On the shores of R'lyeh however, they have much to fear.

The fictional city where Cthulhu lives that is (presumably) an isolated island in this project.
