Maggots In Our World!

Maggots are some of our great decomposers in the world. This weekend I was pleasantly surprised to find house fly maggots doing a great job of decomposing a rabbit in our backyard. Eventhough my husband did not seem to share my enthusiasm, it was wonderful to see them doing such a great job. Within two days, they completely ate all the flesh. Now, we are left with bones and hair.
