Caption: Decaying rabbit. Time-lapse footage of a decaying dead rabbit. The process of decomposition of animal bodies starts at the point of death. It involves autolysis (the internal breakdown of tissues) and putrefaction (the breakdown of tissues by microbes). Carrion beetles, mites and flies and their larvae (maggots) scavenge and feed on the flesh of the carcass, seen as the wriggling movements visible under the skin. The five stages of decomposition are fresh, bloat, active decay, advanced decay, and dry remains.
