The Smart, Agile, and Completely Underrated Dodo
Legends about the extinct bird being slow of foot and mind are just that: legends
I have been studying species that were driven into extinct with the Age of Exploration and the Dodo along with many different types of birds and dogs in North America was also driven into extinct.
The era known as the Age of Exploration, sometimes called the Age of Discovery, officially began in the early 15th century and lasted through the 17th century. The period is characterized as a time when Europeans began exploring the world by sea in search of new trading routes, wealth, and knowledge. But the problem with this is they disrupted many things causing the extinction of many cultures as well as animals.
