According To Animal Planet They Are!

I’m sure everyone is pretty thankful that the city of Brandon did the mosquito fogging the other week. There’s been A drastic drop off in the little buggers and that’s great for A plethora of reasons. One of those reasons is that the mosquito is being called the most dangerous animal in the world!

Animal Planet host Forest Galante is the one who made this claim and it’s pretty scary when you think of it. Here’s what he said: 
“Mosquitos, it’s not the stuff that you can see that kills you, it’s the parasites in mosquitos that you don’t see coming. I am not kidding when I say I’ve sat in places where I’ve had eight to 10,000 mosquitos on me at once. If one of those 8,000 have malaria, I am done. You can pick up a snake and then walk away from it, you can’t walk away from those mosquitos.”

I don’t think I’ve ever thought of A mosquito being scarier than A snake…especially since I just had A friend send me pictures of his hand after his pet snake attacked him and that looked vicious. I think I’m gonna stick with thinking snakes are A little more dangerous and mosquitos are just more annoying. Oh and just so we're all on the same page, heres what would happen if we got rid of all the mosquitos:
