Day 4: Rotting Carcasses!

We are on Day 4 of the rotting carcasses! And they are getting icky!! Remember those little yellow eggs? Guess what? They hatched! The pieces of meat are covered in larvae, a.k.a. maggots.

What changes are you noticing in the meat? How much has changed in the past two days? What do you think it will look like by Monday? Some of the meat looks like it is decomposing at different rates. Why do you think this is happening?
