See the truth about this dodo that appeared in Costa Rica in this new video

A verdade sobre o Dodô (The truth about Dodo)

The dodo bird was declared extinct more then 3 centuries ago. But could it still be alive? Discover the truth about the polemic video that shows a dodo in Costa Rica.

~ Leticia Blause

Link to the website in the video.

Google translation of the text on the website:

Save who is still true.

A lot of people thought he could still have some dodo around, after the video that rolled on the internet. Yeah, but this species is no longer 300 years ago , because of the man .

But there’s a lot of animals close to get in the same situation of the dodo and we do not gives a shit .

That is why you will meet here the risk – dodo . An index to show the danger that some of them are running. And you will also be able to help these species , which are still of fact, not turn another dodo .

While waiting for a reply from Leticia Blause, another Cryptomundian, opin, also found the video and sent us this:

Just found the link that proves it’s a hoax. The video was made for a conservation group.

On Monday, March 16th, Leticia Blause replied to my email:

Hi Craig,

on Friday, the 13th, divulged the truth about the video. It was a video to raise awareness of the extinction of animals, created for Terrazul ONG.

    I think most of the level-headed Crypto-posters here knew that this wasn’t an authentic video of a living Do Do.

  2. PhotoExpert responds:

    cryptokellie–Agreed! When I first saw this video I posted that it was FAKE and the reasons I called it out as fake. Yes, all level-headed Cryptomundians knew this was fake except for a few. Cryptomundian Larry thought it was 50/50 to 65/35 that it was authentic. I give all newbies a pass.

    So Larry, now you know it is 100% FAKE. Your reasons were interesting as to why you thought it was real. And kudos for doing the mental gymnastics in evaluating the pros and cons. But when you get more than one red flag, your spidey senses should have been tingling. You must remove emotion and be objective, completely objective. You fell into the trap where we would all like the Dodo to still be alive that you allowed your emotions to over-ride your critical thinking. You started concentrating on the excuses as to how and why the Dodo could possibly still be alive. But you let those reasons take over why excluding and minimizing the obvious red flags. So next time, when evaluating video, do not discount or minimize the red flags. Keep your emotional thinking in check. You were 50%-65% in favor of this video being an authentic one. If you had taken into account the red flags, you would have been in agreement with the rest of us who knew it was 100% fake!

    Larry, I wish you were correct and we were wrong. But this is a FAKE and now has been proven as FAKE. In the future, when you get 1 red flag, that is acceptable and needs further analysis. But when you get more than one, that it is suspect. Be truly objective next time.

    And that sums up my misgivings with video footage. That video “looked good enough” to pass for real…well for the most part. Either way, the tech is there to make almost anything look legit–at least at first inspection.

    We have reached (and I think so for a while now), that video evidence is only worthwhile as corroboration of other aspects of a sighting. Of course that’s nothing new–the P/G film has been around for decades and people are still debating that… go figure.

  4. PoeticsOfBigfoot responds:

    Thanks for the update, Craig.

  5. Dr Kaco responds:

    springheeledjack summed this all up real good! I’ll give props to the tech that made this but it so doesn’t help out cryptozoology or paranormal investigations at all. =p
