The most deadly animal in the world is the mosquito. It might seem impossible that something so miniscule can kill so many people, but it’s true. According to the World Health Organization, mosquito bites result in the deaths of more than 1 million people every year. The majority of these deaths are due to malaria. The female mosquitoes are actually the ones responsible for the bites as they need the protein in the blood for egg production. Mosquitoes are also known to transport very serious diseases such as Malaria, Yellow Fever, Zika and Chikungunya.
