Screw worms, but they aren't really worms at all -
they're maggots.
Screw worms are the larvae of a kind of fly that lays eggs in the open wounds of cattle. When they hatch, the maggots feed on the animal's tissue, using sharp mandibles to tear at the flesh. Screw worms can kill cattle in 10 days if left untreated.
