Prehistoric Dragonfly

In 1880 in the Commentry region, southern France, fossils of an insect whose wings were constantly increasing were discovered. French paleontologist Charles Bloomoniat spent many years studying petrography. He then concludes that it is a fossil of a dragonfly with constant size dating back to prehistoric times, roughly 300 million years old. He named the dragonfly fossil Meganeura – or means “Dragonfly not”.

In terms of physical features, prehistoric dragonflies have looks similar to today’s dragonflies. Their biggest difference is their giant appearance. Prehistoric Dragonflies had wingspan of nearly 30 inches or 2.5 ft (75 cm) with an estimated weight of more than 1 pound (450), which is about the size and weight of a Crow today.
