  6. 6. The Dodo • Q: 1.. What is a dodo bird? • : 1.. What is a dodo bird? The dodo bird is an extinct bird, which is believed to have died out around 1681 AD. The dodo bird was a gray,flightless bird, and may be a distant relative of the pigeon family. It had a large, hooked beak, and a plume of white feathers adorned its tail. Surprisingly little is known about the dodo and its way of life. Some scientists believe that the dodo was extremely overweight, from between twenty and twenty three kilograms. Others speculate that it was much thinner, and that it was a running bird. • Q: 2.. What is the scientific name of the dodo? The scientific name of the dodo bird is quot;Raphus Cucullatusquot;. • Q: 3.. Where did the dodo bird live? The dodo bird lived on the island of Mauritius, which is located off the coast of Africa. On the island, the dodo had few, if any, predators, and it was safe for the bird to live on the ground..
  7. 7. Q: 4.. When was the dodo first discovered? The dodo was first discovered in 1581, by visitors to the island of Mauritius. Q: 5.. When did the dodo become extinct? The exact date is uncertain, but it is generally believed that the dodo was extinct around 1681. Q: 6.. Why did the dodo become extinct? When man introduced new species, the dodo was easy prey. However, the direct influence of man through hunting also played a significant role - eventually leading to the extinction of the species. Q: 7.. People use the word dodo as an insult. Was it really stupid? No! The dodo, being an animal, didn't have the same levels of intelligence as people, but nor did it suffer from a lack of smarts. This fallacy may stem from the fact that early visitors to the island were surprisedto find the dodo to be a friendly bird Q: 8.. Why do people use the phrase quot;dead as a dodoquot;? The dodo is an extinct bird, and is often remembered for its death.
  8. 8. Why did the dinosaurs die? • Period: Early Cretaceous • Order, Suborder, Family: Saurischia, Theropoda, Megalosauridae • Location: North America • Length: 25 feet (7.5 meters • When did dinosaurs become extinct? • Dinosaurs went extinct about 65 million years ago (at the end of the Cretaceous Period), after living on Earth for about 165 million years. Dinosaur lifespans probably varied in length from tens of years to hundreds of years.
