Does dodo bird fly?

Dodo birds did not fly. They had no natural predators and did not need to fly. Their bones were too dense for flight and they swallowed rocks to aid in digestion, so they were too heavy to take off. Their inability to fly is one of the many reasons that they went extinct so quickly.
