        Are we really going to let the "Dodo" go extinct a second time? If you approve, then you're the real monster here.

          Spare the dodo. Please, while hunting only capture or don't hunt at all, or we will have to hunt the real monsters...

            It's an adorable overweight lizard the size of a truck that can barff explosions on it's enemies. I can see why everyone loves this thing so much

              I'll say it now but don't hate me for it. I don't think dodo is "cute", and whenever I knock down a monster he attacks ME. I'm not hating on dodo, but he's just, "Mildly Annoying" to me. But to be honest there are a few instances where he smiled at me, and that did put a smile on my face.

                    The first time I ever saw this good boi, he literally SMILED AT ME when he was walking past me. It was the cutest thing ever.

                      My favorite good boi moment was after we were done capturing Azure Rathalos me and 2 random strangers did an escort mission to protect Dodogama and once we reached his home we were ambushed by an Uragaan and Azure Rathalos and we were all freaking out but we destroyed those 2 without mercy until Dodogama left the area and then we were all happy

                        I safed a Dodogama's life the other day. I joined a Master Rank expedition to hunt an Uragaan and test out my new Support build. I found three guys wailing on this poor creature. It was obvious that he wasn't gonna make it much longer. So i threw down a trap and two Tranq bombs and captured him fragments of a second before that one guy hit his face with a TCS.

                          I would rather have Nargacuga as a pet If it was Dodogama, I would genuinely not ever leave my house and it would cripple my life. I would be fired everywhere because I'd just wanna be with best boy.
