According to a World Health Organization report, what is the deadliest animal in the world?
What would you say is the most dangerous animal on Earth? Sharks? Snakes? Humans? The world's deadliest animal, year after year, is actually something much smaller - the mosquito. When it comes to killing humans, no other animal even comes close. Humans murder around 475,000 other people each year. Snakes kill around 50,000, while dogs (mainly from rabies transmission) claim another 25,000 lives. Sharks kill fewer than 10. However, every year about 725,000 people die due to mosquito-borne illnesses. Spreading diseases such as malaria, West Nile, and yellow fever, the mosquito kills more people than any other creature in the world.
