Cryptozoology is the study of strange and unknown and mythic creatures. Now we can add the *penguin* that wandered into a gas station in Peru. The video has been viewed over a million times because it is just plain terrifying.

It looks like a penguin. Or a small human. Or? Your guess is as good as mine. Two men standing in the front of the station don't quite see the creature at first. And then when they do, they approach it.

According to the video's caption, the "strange creature or robot less than a meter high" was seen "floating or walking" through the car park at 3:30am before later being hit by a cargo truck.

What could it be? Is it dead? Where did it go? Many questions and no answers. So maybe we can add the Penguin of Peru to list of cryptozoological creatures we will forever seek.
