There are many creatures from the various monstrous manuals that have
been officially added to Dark Sun. I added some unofficially for my game
and I'm sure a lot of other DMs do the same.
There is no inherent problem with this, although the flavor text often doesn't fit with the Dark Sun setting. My goal is to list the various monsters that "don't fit" and rewrite their flavor text to make them fit.
I often add a new Athasian variant as well.

Giant dragonflies, like their smaller counterparts, are
swift and deadly aerial hunters. While their smaller cousins are
generally beneficial, the giant variety is a dangerous predator that
attacks any creature its size or smaller.
Giant dragonfly eggs hatch in 12-20 days. Once hatched, a dragonfly remains in larval form for about a year.
