Fact of the Day
Ironically, the Dodo is referred to as walgvogel (unpalatable fowl)by the Dutch. Between the men and animals (i.e. pigs, rats) introduced to the island of Mauritius (off the coast of Madagascar, Africa), the Dodo was completely wiped out.
Dodos do not fly, and lay only one egg per year; thus making them easy prey. Also, without a general fear of humankind, the Dodo must have practically walked into the settlers hands.
