Is this an actual, living dodo?
Could it be?
Nope. Of course not.
Here’s the scoop:
Living Dodo Bird Caught on Video in Costa Rica?
In early March 2015, this video (no longer available) was posted online and claims to show a living Dodo Bird in the jungles of Costa Rica. The footage was captured by a trail camera.
Professor Paul Jubilut, a biologist from the Federal University of Santa Catarina, posted the video to his Facebook page, claiming he received it from a follower. The video shows the supposed Dodo walking around near the trail camera.
Though the video’s authenticity has been heavily debated since it hit the web, Professor Paul Jubilut posted this video, (no longer available) revealing that the footage was part of an ad campaign for a website about wildlife conservation. So while the footage may be fake, it was at least created for a good cause.
Oh well. I knew the second I saw “Costa Rica.” Never were any dodos in Costa Rica.
LOL. Looks good, though, doesn’t it?
