Would you recognize your leftovers when they’re magnified? Would you know turkey if you saw it at 40X?

    Why does the turkey look so much like an insect larva?

    It doesn’t look much like the insect larvae that I’ve examined. I agree that the color is similar, but I see a bunch of long clear muscle cells that are all intertwined in the turkey samples.

    Maybe it’s just the way my eyes work…but I took a look at that first photo, the Turkey SGP 2006, and the first thought that sprang to mind was “Drosophila!” — the bit in the upper-right hand corner looks like a semi-dissected larva head, to me. Have you ever had a close look at them when they’ve just turned to pupae and are still white?

    But hey, I’ve had a lot of people tell me I’m just weird. They’re probably right.
