The Deadliest Animal in the World

What would you say is the most dangerous animal on Earth? Sharks? Snakes? Humans?

Of course the answer depends on how you define dangerous but if you’re judging by how many people are killed by an animal every year, then the answer isn’t any of the above. It’s mosquitoes. Surprised?

When it comes to killing humans, no other animal even comes close. According to this great visualization posted by Bill Gates, mosquitoes kill 163,780 more humans than all the other “dangerous” animals combined, including sharks, snakes, and humans—the second deadliest animal.
