I was sent a lovely 5mb video of a doctor pulling a live botfly out of a persons head.

its from the learning channel.

love this line:
after two days with a dying maggot in her scalp...

i don't want to post it on the site cause its so big i'll get killed with bandwidth charges, but if you want a copy send me an email at marty@casado.net and i'd love to send you a copy so you too can get grossed out

has nice mtv type editing and TERROR soundtrack

OK..as an ER nurse, I've seen a lot of yucky stuff, but this is one of the yuckiest. I am going to take it to work and show the Drs....they will be so impressed!! When I was a child, I had a pet rabbit who got one of these, except it was black, and the vet took it out. But, in a person, how gross!

The botfly lays its eggs under the skin. It hatches, the larva grows, gets quite big, it has hooks which stop it being easily extracted, it hurts like heck apparently, turns out that humans and dogs make bad hosts so the botfly larva can't mature..if it's not removed it dies and "cauterizes" under the skin.

About 15 years ago my dog had one of these and I was assured by its howling when I removed the larva that it really did hurt.

That bugger Marty has some great botfly stuff on his website...
