it was in two pieces and one piece had green ball i think its the eggs and next to them i found little silver looking thing which i doubt its got anything to do with it right?

Dear Rafal - Other than an occasional case of fly larvae being passed in stool (see, I do not know of any insect larvae of any kind in Australia that would live inside a human body. I have no idea what object is in your first image, but it certainly does not appear to be an insect of any kind. The object in your second image appears to be a fragment of a cookie (biscuit).

Will accept most questions in general entomology, including those related to medical entomology, taxonomy, ecology, arthropod surveillance, and pest management. If you are requesting a 'mystery bug' identification, PLEASE either attach an image to your question, or post an image on a web page (such as Flickr) so that I can look at it, as verbal descriptions frequently are insufficient for a definitive identification.
