|Sheep bot fly|
|The sheep bot fly (Oestrus ovis) belongs to the genus Oestrus in the order Diptera and is the most common member of the subfamily Oestrinae, in the family of bot flies (Oestridae). The sheep bot fly originally came from the Palearctic eco-zone but is now found throughout the world.
The sheep bot fly reaches body lengths of 10-12 mm. The thorax is covered with thick golden fur. The abdomen is whitish-grey with black markings. The sheep bot fly has a broad head with large, reddish to brown compound eyes. The mouth tools are degenerate and allow only a small quantity of food to be ingested.

The larvae are up to 30 mm in length. After the last larval stage, the larvae are sneezed or coughed out by the host animals and fall down to the soil in which they pupate. The sheep bot fly occasionally lays its larvae in humans, especially in the eyes.

Bot flies reach body lengths of 10-13 mm. They are covered in thick furry hair. The mouth parts of this fly are often highly degenerated, thus many species do not eat solid food. Some species, however, take in fluid. The well developed, large wings have a central vein spreading out in different angle. The thorax is covered with scales and has a number o...|
