When you think of a mythological creature coming back from the dead, probably a zombie or mummy comes to mind. But believe it or not, scientists have recently discovered a real life creature that has done a similar thing, and it comes in the form of a fly. As reported in Science Journal, Thyreophora cynophila, also known as the bone skipper, re-emerged from its extinct status when scientists recently captured some near Madrid, Spain. The fly, similar to a zombie, likes to feed on the rotting flesh of dead beasts. But since its disappearance in 1840, many have thought it either extinct or perhaps a fictional species that never truly existed. But with its reappearance, scientists are now abuzz with excitement over this morbidly peculiar fly.
