Nature, man. Nature. Eeh.

Here’s a series of professionally produced, sleek time-lapsesfrom the Natural History Museum. See flesh-eating beetles gnawing at a parrot, an owl and a pheasant. See their feathers shake and ruffle as the bugs burrow into their skin. Watch the owl head pop off and burst into rotting flesh, then skull, then nothing but bone chunks. See the green macaw head get stripped of green down, the beetles eating out its eyes and diving in and out of its eye socket. Oh, dermestes haemarrhoidalis. You glorious free-laborers of the scientific community. Bon apetit.

You can also watch it live.
