never knew we had them here ive only seen them on tv I even saw some guy on the discovery channel i believe who got one in him over in asia or something and he let it live in him till i believe the pain became unbarrable or something I cant really remember but doctors had to remove it surgicly(sp?) i think it was on his stomach but it was pretty big and he was a very very wierd guy he named it george and he totes it around in a jar now
That guy was my zoology professor. Or else he stole that story.

found one in the chest cavity of a deer I killed last year. It had come into the chest cavity from the nasal passage when I was hosing it out. it freaked me out a bit. I butchered the thing but wasn't sure I would eat it till I did some research and found out what they are. They lay eggs on the deers nose, deer licks its nose and the larva make their way into the nasal passage. the pupus grows there and then drops out/gets sneezed out and the fly hatches. creepy damned things. And the meat was still tasty.
