Do you know what the world’s most deadly animal is?

 
Is it sharks? There is a lot of hype behind shark attacks but sharks are only responsible for 5-15 deaths worldwide per year.

How about Lions? In North America you can expect 1-2 deaths from Lion attacks in a typical year.

Could it be something smaller? Could be something that we typically encounter almost daily on a hot summer day? Have you figured it out?

The most deadly animal that a human can encounter is a mosquito. Mosquitos are responsible for approximately 700,000 to 1,000,000 deaths world-wide per year. Mosquitos world-wide are responsible for the transmission of Malaria. Locally Mosquitos have been reported to be carriers of Eastern Equine Encephalitis and West Nile Virus all of which are potentially fatal disease. Recently a concern was raised in the United States that a virus, chikungunya, a disease predominately found in the Caribbean is making its way into the states as well.
