I went into our favourite pet shop today P@H, and bought a Peter Gurney book for £4.99 and guess what? Inside the book cover on the first page was a little wriggly MAGGOT. Buy a book and get a pet maggot for free, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry :-\

maggots are apparently quite nutritious, how did it taste?

Not too bad, a bit like chicken ;)

Yestreday I found something that looked like a maggot in the piggies bedding. Was surprised because it was after I had cleaned them. ?

I didn't really try it you know ;D I am sorrythough, I screamed and squashed it in some tissue paper, suppose I could have put it outside but I was so shocked. There was even maggot poo in the book :o

Blee! I too would have screamed and jumped two feet up in the air.

But one thing confuses me; how on earth did a maggot get into the book, and why on earth did I fly lay his egg in a book?
