What is it?

In early 2001, researcher and scientist, Bill Nye the Science Guy, discovered the Gobi-Gas Fly in Ibogsag, South America (a Amazonian rainforest region). In his exploration he examined the effects and genetic makeup of the new specie.In his research findings Mr. Nye writes, "I've never seen a specie with such complex genetic chemistry, the Gobi-Gas fly has the ability, using extreme sense of smell to locate high amounts of methane gas deriving from flatulence. The fly then absorbs the methane through its pores and converts it into a viable organic energy source.” (Ibogsag: The Parts Unknown, pg. 213). In his writing he continues describing the new creature and its characteristics.The Gobi-Gas fly has the capability to communicate with all other species and animals, which is part of its methane tracking process.


The Gobi-Gas fly is an extremely social and likeable creature among its habitat. Its day-to-day operations are still being observed and documented for the public. We do however know that the new specie is extremely intelligent considering its odd diet of an unusual food source (methane).The Gobi-Gas has the intelligent ability to mimic other animals and its surroundings causing this abnormal bug to be extremely efficient, in that it can harmonize with the native habitat in order to survive. Aside from its main daily activity, which is finding its food,

Global Impact:

The Gobi Gas Fly has a substantial effect not only within the ecosystem it is involved with but also the world’s natural status. During the flies natural feeding process it rids the air of unwanted methane caused by all other animal life forms on earth. With out this process we would find massive amounts of this harmful gas within our air composition causing poor air quality and probably health issues. The organic source of energy that becomes of this process from the fly has been verified but has yet to be efficiently extracted. Once this process is studied more and techniques on harnessing this energy source, without harming the Gobi-Gas Fly, we will have effectively create a renewable resource of energy that could power up to 1 million houses per every 10,000 Gobi-Gas flies.'
