  • What an excellent video! I feel for the poor animal who has them, but I found that more satsfying than a blackhead being popped. The way they flew out made me think MORE, MORE!

    • I’m with you – I wanted to be a baby rocker at the hospitals, but now I am torn – which would give me more satisfaction, cuddling babies, or seeing how far I can make those maggots fly?

    • There is a medication that can prevent mangoworms. But most folks in Gambia are too poor to buy it. At least the maggots don’t have hooks like botflies. When you pull out a botfly it hurts the host. After seeing several of these videos the only pain seems to be the act of pinching. There is also a video out there of human infestations. A group of high school age girls who went to Africa on a mission. They were really grossed out but it didn’t seem to hurt them as the maggots were squeezed out.

      • I watched that video a number of times and what I remember the most is the one girl with like 10 of em was in m**ZIT**ive tears with removal. Plus the areas where they were were very infected as well so maybe that’s why??? Maybe it’s worse in humans?? Heck, I dunno. I cried watchin her.
        I like the video where “Lucky” eats his worms after they come out but removing thim didn’t seem to hurt at all. Sort of at a loss…..just know I like watchin. Thanks for the video.

  • What a sad situation for poor pooch, but at least he is getting help. I wish they could eradicate that nasty species once and for all. I know I wouldn’t mind if that meant no more mangoworm posts. I could survive on nasal myiasis posts…thanks so much, Halphie, for all you do to keep us happy.
