Botfly Maggots In Human Heads

Today I’m obsessed with weird bugs. This is one of the most disturbing videos I’ve seen in a while — don’t watch it if you don’t want to see a botfly maggot being pulled out of a woman’s head:


Let’s all say a prayer of thankfulness to the Flying Spaghetti Monster for creating such a Wonderful Creature to hatch from our heads for His Glory.

Evolutionary biologist Jerry Coyne (author of Why Evolution is True) also had a botfly in his head, and let it hatch all the way and tried to “enjoy the experience as much as possible.”

The maggot started hatching in the middle of a baseball game at Fenway Park, but came out at home later that day. He said the hatching was painless, unlike the previous stage where the maggot was eating his flesh. Coyne tried to keep it alive, but failed. It made him sad.
