What makes mosquitoes deadliest animals?

They are considered dangerous because they carry fatal diseases, worst one being malaria followed by diseases like dengue, encephalitis, zika virus, yellow fever to name a few. They carry a parasite which is the main cause of deadly diseases. This virus is carried by female mosquitoes of the Anopheles genus. When mosquitoes bite an infected person, they transmit the malarial virus and the chain of infection continues as they keep biting person to person. Malaria is transmitted through blood.

How do they spread the virus?

Mosquitoes bite people to feed on blood which allows them to produce eggs. While feeding, the mosquito pierces through the skin like a needle and hence injects the saliva into the skin. This causes the disease causing virus to spread in the body which makes them one of the deadliest animals. So, always prevent getting bitten by a mosquito!
