It’s been awhile since we did a surgery video.. I always wonder how does this happen?

According to Wikipedia:

A botfly[1], also written bot fly,[2] bott fly[3] or bot-fly[4] in various combinations, is any fly in the family Oestridae. The life cycles vary greatly according to species, but the larvae of all species are internal parasites of mammals. They are variously known by common names such 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 human botfly, Dermatobia hominis, is the only species of bot fly known to use humans routinely as its larval host, though it is neither the only nor the most harmful fly to cause myiasis in humans.
