I know that when the creeps are mega they only give half the normal amount of gold. Is there a difference in the amount of experience gained by killing a normal creep vs a mega creep?

Are you asking about DOTA or DOTA 2? You can't ask about both :) – badp Sep 16 '12 at 22:25
Considering the mechanic applies to both games, I don't think it really matters. – jzacharia Sep 20 '12 at 21:33

Yes they give less gold & experience.

When an enemy's Barracks falls, all Lane Creeps of the associated type for that team begin to spawn as Mega Creeps. Mega Creeps are stronger versions of regular Lane Creeps that give less Gold and Experience to the enemy when killed. When all enemy Barracks are destroyed, Upgraded Mega Creeps begin to spawn.

Furthermore upgraded ranged & melee creeps give only 25 experience compared to 41(range)-62(melee) .
