Eryon is an extinct genus of decapod crustaceans from the Late Jurassic of Germany.[1] Its remains are known from the Solnhofen limestone. It reached a length of around 10 cm (3.9 in) and may have fed on the particulate matter on the seabed.

The Land Before Time

In The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island, a stylized imaginary Eryon appears during the song Big Water when Ducky sings her verse.
