Three-feet tall, flightless, and, rather improbably, a member of the pigeon family, the dodo lived a peaceful existence on the island of Mauritius , some 1,200 miles off the southeastern coast of Africa, growing ever larger for millions of years right up until about 1600, when the first Dutch colonists arrived on the island.
