    Explanation
    Dodos became extinct in the 17th century. This is because dodos were flightless birds that were native to the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. When European sailors arrived on the island in the late 16th century, they brought with them invasive species such as rats, cats, and pigs, which preyed on the dodos and destroyed their eggs. Additionally, the sailors also hunted the dodos for food. These factors, combined with habitat destruction, led to the rapid decline and eventual extinction of the dodo population by the 17th century.
