I've always believed that the dodo was a dinosaur, I don't know exactly why. I've done some searching on the internet, but except for toy stores selling "Dodo the Dinosaur's" I didn't find anything very useful of which I could conclude if the dodo was a dinosaur or not.
So, was the dodo a dinosaur or not? And if the dodo wasn't a dinosaur, why do people say it's a dinosaur?
(I couldn't find a related tag, I think 'palaeontology' was the closest to what I needed)
