The Dodo bird became extinct towards the end of the XVIIth century. He was unable to resist the numerous predators: Dutch sailors, monkeys, pigs and others. A question of utmost importance never asked by scientists is: “Would have the bird survived if it had worn ‘dodo flip flops’?” It could have, with strong yellow feet, 3 fingers in front and one at the back!
