"The famous dodo (Didus ineptus) lived upon the island of Mauritius in 1598, but so complete is its extinction by man that it is now only known by few pictures, bones, feathers, and other parts, in a few museums. It was a pigeon-like bird as large a swan, with an enormous hooked bill and rudimentary feathers." (HOLDER, Elements of zoology, American Book Company, 1885, p.263)
