Before becoming extinct, where was the dodo bird native to?

  • Mauritius correct

    The dodo bird was native to Mauritius! Mauritius lies near Madagascar, and was home to the dodo until it died out in the 17th century. Though it's famous for being flightless, many think that the species was able to fly at one point before settling on its island home. Source: History.com
