History

Meganeura ('meg-ah-nure-ah', meaning “Large Veins/Nerves”, often just called 'the giant dragonfly') is a flying prehistoric insect from the Carboniferous Period that resembles a huge dragonfly. It was added in Build 8.0.0, alongside the four other “mega” mobs. Currently, it is the only insect in the mod, and one of three mobs in the mod capable of flight, the other two being confuciusornis and pteranodon. It is also cathemeral, meaning it is active throughout day and night.

Nymph (baby) meganeura are unique in that they are one of the only mobs that have a detailed life cycle. The nymphs can only live in water and are placed like an aquatic animal.

Similarly to Arthropleura and Megalograptus, Meganeura is affected by weapons enchanted with Bane of Arthropods.

TAMING

Meganeura, much like Tiktaalik, is not tamed on hatching but needs to be tamed by giving it meat or using a whip on it.

FEEDING

Meganeura is a carnivore so they need to eat meat with the exception to rotten flesh. The Meganeura can eat from feeders.
