Is it true that Dodo Birds went extinct simply because they were too stupid?

    No, this is not true. Basically, in 1598, a group of sailors discovered this bird and since the dodo bird had no natural predators before the arrival of humans, it was not afraid of the sailors. Mistaking its lack of fear for a lack of intelligence, the sailors called the bird the “dodo” which means “simpleton.” The way it became extinct is beacuse it was hunted vigorously by humans who settled in its habitat. It was hunted for sport and food and its eggs (which it laid on nests on the ground) were devoured by dogs, cats, and pigs. Because of its lack of defenses, the entire species was wiped out in no time.
