Mei long, or "sleeping dragon", is a small (duck-sized) troodontid from the Early Cretaceous period in China. Both fossils found so far were found in a sleeping posture, with the snout tucked under one wing, and the tail curled around the body, in a pose similar to how birds today sleep. Both Mei that have been found appear to be juveniles, but it is likely that even as adults they wouldn't have gotten much larger.
