“Raphus lazarus” that is below the Domesticated part is the error of naming this creature in Dino Dossier

According to the Dino Dossier, it said that they are so forgetful but in real life, there weren’t any wild predators inhabiting the Mauritius which was the islands, so they had no idea how to respond to a hunter, so there are so many different factors for their death, like the initial Dutch settlers hunted down them too much, rats, which could break one egg laid, and wild dangers also offered their ruination from the plentiful creatures to an extinct ones.

These creatures got such a bad moving speed, causing it to be very tough to walk around. Some of them are not even able to run faster that the human even if their speed is always 100% full. But, they have a good swimming speed that they can make a good use of to hide bigger distances quicker.

After the v241, the perfect way to make them move is to hold them up using your hands and throw them. But you won’t be able to pick up a tool or any weapons while you’re doing that.

There is a zombie variant of the dodo that was created nearby the DodoRex in ARK: Fear Evolved. This zoom This version is much more hostile, and it’s willing to assault the player.

The Dodos can act as a secondary mascot to the game, and they turn up on artwork and holiday events.

The Dodo is a bearer of the Swamp Fever.
