The Dodo (Raphus cucullatus) is an extinct flightless bird that was endemic to the island of Mauritius, east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. It is closely related to pigeons.
Jurassic Park Inspired games
The Dodo appears in the game Jurassic Park: Builder as a limited edition herbivore in the glacier park.
The Dodo makes a small appearance in Jurassic World: The Game as a food source for some of the Cenozoic animals, in particular the cat-like mammals in the Snow exhibit, the large snakes and the dog-like mammals in the Cavern exhibit.
- Despite the Dodo being a flightless bird, It is shown flying when in the Jurassic Park: Builder tournament. This may be for comedic purposes.
- The Dodo being prey for the predators in the Cenozoic section in Jurassic World: The Game may be considered ironic considering the fact that the Dodo in real life had no natural predators other than humans.
