The Elegant Dodo

~ The Elegant Dodo ~ 

Sadly the dodo is no more, hunted to extinction in the 17th century. It was a large (over three feet tall and weighing as much as 47 pounds) flightless bird that lived on the island of Mauritius, east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. For years some people believed it was a mythical creature and never existed at all, until fossilized remains were found and studied. Author Lewis Carroll popularized the dodo bird by having one appear in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
