Without any food or objects in the cup, the motivation of the maggot’s movement remains unknown. When the worm is not agitated, it remains static in place but tries to move with its front pair of legs. Its back legs remain still keeping it from moving. The technique in movement that it uses appears to be that it coils or compresses the back half of its body which it then propels itself forward. When agitated with a piece of paper, the worm responds by moving frequently and vigorously. A frontal threat showed that the worm could move backward at a reasonable speed.
