A maggot is the larval stage of the fly life cycle, famous for eating decomposing flesh.
Sometimes "maggot" is used to refer to the larval stage of any insect.
Maggots are generally 4 to 12 mm in length depending on their stage of growth.
Most maggots range from an off-white color to a light brown, though some can be a yellow or reddish color.
Maggots have one pair of tiny hook-like parts to aid in feeding and have no legs.
