The Fly - 186/365

There are estimated to be 10,000 flies for every single human and over 85,000 different species of fly.A single fly may carry 6-million bacteria, including cholera, TB, typhoid and dysentery. The eyes of a fly are compound, meaning they are made up of many simple eyes each pointing in a different direction. This makes them very adept at detecting movement. However, compound eyes cannot focus, so the fly would be unable to read the print! A fly’s body is covered in minute hairs that are very sensitive to changes in air pressure. This also helps flies evade swatting.
