Dodo bird (Raphus cucullatus) reconstruction created in 3d by artist and designer John Niehuss, 2017.

My passion for nature and the outdoors extends to the animal citizens that live in it and I have always been interested in the creatures that once existed. No animal represents extinction in the public mind more than the Dodo bird and I found that there are relatively few accurate renderings of the dodo based on primary sources. I set out to create my own dodo reconstruction in 3d to represent this bird as I understand it to have looked.
