Dodo (Raphus cucullatus)

“The Dodo bird evolved in relative isolation and in the absence of significant predators.”

“As a result, the Dodo was relatively fearless in its interactions with humans, resulting in rapid depopulation and extinction of the species at the hands of man.”

“So… that’s a ‘no’ on the high-five, then?”
