  • Mei Long (meaning sound asleep slumbering dragon) is a Troodontid from early Cretaceous China.

It was found in a sleep position, with its head under its wing and its legs folded under its body.This proves the similarity of dinosaurs to birds.


Most evidence points to Mei being a omnivore, but like some other of it's relatives, it might have eaten leaves on occasion for some unknown reason. if it was a carnivore, it would eat rodents, lizards and maybe even hatchling dinosaurs, it may have also have been an egg thief.
