Meganeura ("large nerved') is a genus of giant dragonfly that lived during the Carboniferous period of Europe. It resembled modern dragonflies, except for its large size. It was a predatory animal, catching smaller insects and small lizards for its food.
In The Land Before Time
Meganeura appears as an enemy in The Land Before Time for GameBoy Advance. They appear in the second area of the game, Smelly Swamp. They will fly back and forth until a player jumps into them, which will damage the player. However, they can be simply defeated by jumping on their back. They give the player 50 points when defeated.
