3. Mosquito

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Mosquitoes tend to make a meal out of me when I go to warm country. I'm convinced that as soon as I land and hit terra firma, they call all their mosquito buddies and have a party on my person, because I tend to get consumed alive by the macroscopic beasts. Luckily, the mozzies which have munched on me have not carried malaria, as mosquito borne malaria is a big killer and has taken the lives of more people than any other disease. It is reported that the disease kills 1.2 million people every year, with most of the deaths in children.
