TriviaEdit

  • The sound effects of Mei long are that of raven, vulture, fox, coyote, and reptile sounds.
  • While the Mei long do have a feather coating, they are missing wings and a tail fan.
  • Mei long shouldn't have pronated hands as how entertainment usually shows them (Jurassic Park, etc), since their arms/wings were very bird-like, other than having clawed fingers.
  • Mei long in the series were the size of a small child, about the size of Troodon. It is not out of the question that they even used the same CGI Model. In real life, Mei long were actually the size of a chicken.
