Thanks , There were several dead ones embedded in his poop . He is a bit of a scavenger and I think he must have eaten something that had maggots in it.

No he would have digested them if he had eaten them. The maggots must have hatched on the poop, or crawled into it. It doesn't take long in warm weather.
