As long as you dont the same study as what the crazy final year medical student in Russia did for her thesis!!!! She murdered 2 old ladies with an axe to see how they die and how the maggots did their consuming! (Think it was in Monday's newspaper - Beeld)

Well it depends. If your my size then I suppose they would be able to feast at least 2 years ;)

Depends on the size of the corpse & the temperature. Depends on too many things. There will alwyas be a different answer.

Mm, buzzing flies lay eggs that become maggots. Not planning something are we? :-> Way to long, the stench urgh. Room temprature at the north pole in winter time and summer time room temp in Sahara. Urgh, thanks for planting that UGKY picture in my mind. Euch :-<

I'd guess a month because the life cycle of maggot is about 10 days and as they multiply the more they eat the more heat they generate, quicker it should go? c["] coffee anyone??
