    Terrible Hairy Fly Found in Kenya

    Post by islandgrl on Wed Dec 08, 2010 4:48 pm

    At about one centimetre long and so far found on a single 20-metre high rock, the Mormotomyia hirsuta looks more like a spider with its hairy legs, scientists said.

    Unable to fly and partial to breeding in bat faeces, the fly is thought to live only in the dank, bat-filled cleft of an isolated rock in the Ukazi Hills. It also has non-functional wings that resemble miniature belt-straps, and tiny eyes.
