"Birth of a Botfly Maggot"

Mark W. "Dr. Bugs" Moffett presents video of a botfly maggot emerging from under the skin of his hand, then explains the life cycle that leads up to that point. Not suitable for the squeamish, but really not nearly as bad as you might think.



Via io9. See also Robert Krulwich's classic interview with Jerry Coyne about Coyne's own botfly birth.
