Flesh Fly

A common fly and these flies differ from most other flies in that they are ovoviviparous, opportunistically depositing hatched or hatching maggots instead of eggs on carrion, dung, decaying material or open wounds of mammals.

Adults feed on fluids from animal bodies, nectar, sweet foods, fluid from animal waste or other organic substances.
