The Dodo (Raphus cucullatus) is a flightless bird endemic to the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius. Related to pigeons and doves, it stands about a meter tall, weighing about twenty kilograms, living on fruit and nesting on the ground. The Dodo has been extinct since the mid-to-late 17th Century. It is commonly used as the archetype of an extinct species because its extinction occurred during recorded human history, and was directly attributable to human activity.
Tom and Duncan took Dodi back to their apartment, where it bit Tom, passing the Parasite onto him. As Dodi began to become increasingly vicious and aggressive due to the Parasite's influence, Duncan locked the Dodo in his bedroom. There, Dodi eventually died from the Parasite. Its body was recovered by the Home Office team, and taken to the Central Metropolitan University by Abby Maitland for a post-mortem. Abby and Tom later took Dodi's body with them back to Matchroom Stadium.
Of all the creature incursions, the Dodos are the most recently extinct, dying out in the 17th Century whereas most other encountered creatures from the past went extinct thousands - millions of years ago. Due to this, they are also the only non-human creatures from the past encountered that are not prehistoric.
Tom and Duncan called the Dodo they captured Dodi.
