Dodo Pavone

Meet Dodo Pavone

The Dodo Pavone’s life was a dream come true. Imagine living for millions of years on the exotic island paradise of Mauritius, quietly strolling around in a luscious forest and along a crystalline sea. Then visualize being the biggest and strongest animal of the island, in harmony with your surroundings, feeling like the king of the world...

They were never in a hurry. If they had to go somewhere, the entire family would follow, gently wobbling along, curious and fearless. It has been reported that the first time a Dodo Pavone saw a human being, he just wobbled straight up to him without hesitation, even giving a small nod, almost saying: “hi!”

They were amiable, friendly in appearance. Their natural outfit was a soft plumage of silvery feathers, with different nuances of grey, blue, beige and white, decorated with a cute pompom at the tail. Their colourful, rounded beaks were greatly admired by the first settlers, who were known to collect Dodo eggs as vases for their prized tulips.
