Basic Info


  • Wild: Meganeura quatpenna is a giant dragonfly and it is a type of griffinfly which is a vanished species of invertebrate. Similar to other griffinflies, Meganuera is a non-aggressive carnivore, at least to human beings. When it is provoked or challenged for food, it will become extremely aggressive. It essentially lives in wet and wooded locations, like jungles.
  • Known Information: Although it is not usually get aggressive, but Meganeura won’t refuse a free meal easily. This creature will crop up in big numbers to hunt for the victims of Pulmonoscorpius, senseless and defenseless themselves. The insects need to dodge the Pulmonoscorpius . Don’t be ill-judged to provoke Meganeura. The way the creatures spread out oxygen will restrict the size, but as for Meganerua, it probably still develops.


Dragonfly is a passive creature, but if you assault just only one, all nearby dragonflies will come and get you. They probably assault you when you are riding an Argentavis.
