This large flightless bird could only be found on the Island of Mauritius. However, the fat and clumsy bird is extinct today because the Dutch Sailors destroyed their habitat and feed on them. Little is known about its behavior. It feeds on fruits which could be digested with the help of buzzard stones. It is commonly depicted as a symbol of extinction and was featured in the story Alice's Adventure In Wonderland. Unlike other birds, the male dodo is larger and has a longer beak.
