The largest insect that ever lived, the Dragonfly-like Meganeuropsis, had a wingspan of 28"

The Dragonfly-like Meganeuropsis was a giant insect that plied the skies from the Late Carboniferous to the Late Permian, some 317 to 247 million years ago. It had a wingspan of some 28" with a body length of around 17." Meganisoptera is an extinct family of insects, all large and predatory and superficially like today’s odonatans, the dragonflies and damselflies. And the very largest of these was Meganeuropsis. It is known from two species, with the type species being the immense M.permiana. Me...

A new analysis of fossils from the 1950s reveals an awesome predator. Pre-dating the dinosaurs, the erythrosuchids were voracious "hypercarnivores." Think terrifying crocodiles on steroids.

If you're wondering how Garjainia would fare against a Tyrannosaurus Rex, don't bother. The apex predator lived some 250 million years ago...
