Default Maggots as food

Being new to all this, I have to ask, Does anyone feed their sally's maggots. I came across a bunch of them feeding on a chicken carcass I had put in the trash. Although it sounds nasty, if I harvested a bunch, rinsed them, I'd think they'd be a great food for salamanders. I know humans in some areas eat them, why not my tiger? They look like nice plump wax worms. Some almost a half inch long. I'd have to believe in the wild, if a salamander happened across a bunch of maggy's, he'd chow down.

Any experienced thoughts?

I think it's been discussed, if you do a search.

Thanks. Looked it up, lots of info out there and it appears they're (flies and fly larva) are a good food source if used sparingly.

I've always believed that when raising any animal, a varied diet is very important.

Thanks again.
