Dodo, we miss you!
The soil at Mare aux Songes has uncovered new secrets today. Bones of the most famous extinct bird of Mauritius, the Dodo have been extracted from this site.
Broadcasted a few minutes ago in the mbc news journal, I was stunned at the size of those bones. The video report on the news journal was very interesting and this aroused a sudden interest of this native bird of Mauritius.
I might soon be visiting the museums 🙂
I don’t even remember when I last visited the Port Louis Museum, probably during my early primary school days.
And what if… the dodo was still alive?
I can’t even imagine this! I believe that they would probably be treated just like poultry in Mauritius. Perhaps you would have a few dodos in your yard or even be having Dodos Barbecue in parties or pay Rs100 for 1/2 kg of dodo’s fresh meat.
Can we ever dream of seeing the dodo again?
Some kind of secret project going on to bring our country’s symbol back to life…
