The World’s Deadliest Animals
Films like Jaws gave sharks a man-eating reputation but when it comes to the animal responsible for the most human fatalities each year, nothing comes close to matching the mosquito.
According to Gatesnotes, 725,000 people are killed by devastating diseases carried by mosquitos annually. Snakes inflict 50,000 fatalities every year while dogs kill a further 25,000 people, primarily through rabies.
