    Cordylobia anthropophaga, the mango fly, is a species of blow-fly common in East and Central Africa. Female mango flies deposit 100-300 eggs in sandy soil often contaminated with animal feces. The hatched larvae can remain viable in the soil for 9%u201315 days until they need to find a host. If a larva finds a host, it will penetrate the skin and take 8%u201312 days until it reaches the prepupal stage. It will then leave the host, drop to the ground, bury itself, and pupate. It then becomes an adult fly able to reproduce and begin the cycle all over again. On the plus side, it makes a very satisfying pop when squeezed out.

        Plus to you for doing the math! It should read 9-15 days and then 8-12 days.
In addition to plain text you can also add links to:
- images
- video pages
- anything else
Simply add a link just like this: http://i.imgur.com/fhfnG.gif and we will do the rest. We will transform all links into clickable links and if the link points to an image or a youtube video page we will open that image / video in a clean pop.
