WATCH: Monster Lying Under Skin Bot Fly Removal From Body

2015

In the first video, the type shown which infected monkey is Cordylobia anthropophaga, the mango fly, tumbu fly, tumba fly, putzi fly, or skin maggot fly, is a species of blow-fly common in East and Central Africa. It is a parasite of large mammals (including humans) during its larval stage.

Then in the other clips, you will watch removal of these worms from human’s different body parts like removal of maggots from nose, from belly button, bot fly removal from humans head and hand.

The Oestridae are a family of flies variously known as bot flies, warble flies, heel flies, gadflies, and similar names.

In cold climates supporting reindeer or caribou-reliant populations, large quantities of Hypoderma tarandi (caribou warble fly) maggots are available to human populations during the butchery of animals.

Pleistocene in Europe confirms their consumption in premodern times, as well.
Their larvae are internal parasites of mammals, some species growing in the host’s flesh and others within the gut. The human botfly, Dermatobia hominis, is the only species of bot fly known to parasitize humans routinely, though other species of flies do cause myiasis in humans.

A botfly, also written bot fly, bott fly or bot-fly in various combinations, is any fly in the family Oestridae. Their lifecycles vary greatly according to species, but the larvae of all species are internal parasites of mammals. Largely according to species, they also are known variously as warble flies, heel flies, and gadflies. The larvae of some species grow in the flesh of their hosts, while others grow within the hosts’ alimentary tracts.


The word “bot” in this sense means a maggot. A warble is a skin lump or callus such as might be caused by an ill-fitting harness, or by the presence of a warble fly maggot under the skin. The human botfly, Dermatobia hominis, is the only species of bot flies whose larvae ordinarily parasitize humans, though flies in some other families episodically cause human myiasis, and are sometimes more harmful.
