Meganeura (meaning "Great Nerves"* in Ancient Greek) lived in (what are now) Europe and North America during the Carboniferous Period (350-280 Million Years Ago), and had a wingspan of up to 30 inches. It inhabited rainforests of tree ferns and horsetails, feeding on smaller insects (and other invertebrates), as well as small amphibians and perhaps very primitive (early) reptiles.

* Because the veins in its wing membranes resembled nerves.
