Meganeura is a monster dragonfly; queen of the Carboniferous skies.

Walking with Monsters: Reptile's Beginnings

Meganeura was a giant dragonfly from the Carboniferous. It was one of the largest insects to ever live.

Physical appearance and biologyEdit

Meganeura was a giant dragonfly whose wingspan was almost a metre. It had powerful wings and a long tail. It had large, compound eyes and six strong legs. It was mostly green and yellow with its wings being a mix of transparency and red.

Behaviour and traitsEdit

Meganeura was a monster dragonfly the size of an eagle. It was an aerial predator which dominate its environment - the skies. Once it caught its prey, it would carry it to the forest canopy and would rest it on the top of a fern and would then persist in eating it.

In the event of a forest fire (which were common during the Carboniferous), Meganeura would haphazardly panic and scatter near water to help guard themselves from the fire. However, that would be risky as many aquatic predators like amphibians such as Proterogyrinus would take full advantage of the situation.

In Walking with MonstersEdit

Reptile's BeginningsEdit

Whilst a Mesothelae was dragging a Petrolacosaurus corpse, a Meganeura stole the meal and flew away with it to the forest canopy where it fed on it. However, as it did so, a massive storm approached.

As the storm arrived, lots of Meganeura scattered close to the local lake. Unfortunately, several Proterogyrinus surged out of the water and snagged many of the dragonflies out of the air.
