We all know that dodos are extinct, but what if there's a secret island where they are all happily dancing away?

The dodo was found only on the island of Mauritius, 500 miles from the Eastern coast of Madagascar. More than 26 million years ago, these pigeon-like birds found paradise and with abundant food and no predators, the birds had no reason to leave. And so, over the years their descendants slowly grew bigger and heavier, their beaks grew larger, their wings smaller: dodos evolved.

However, once man found them they were under threat and finally became extinct around 1690. Despite the fact that humans were far bigger than them, dodos were not afraid of these intruders. Fearless and flightless, they were an easy prey. Their food supply became less abundant by deforestation and they became prey to some of the animals the sailors brought with them.

I have evolved them to become more agile and colourful and my dodos will dance to the end of time.
