Caption

Dodo (Raphus cucullatus), 17th-century artwork. Roughly the size of a swan, the dodo was heavily-built and flightless. It was found on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean and became extinct around 1681 following the arrival of humans. Its appearance is known only from contemporary sketches and artworks, as no intact skins survive. This 1626 work by Dutch painter Roelant Savery (1576-1639), was published in 'The Dodo and its Kindred' (1848) by Strickland and Melville. This copy is part of the collections held at the Tring branch of the Natural History Museum.
