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…
