Four Seasons – Bora Bora
The title of the planet’s deadliest creature might come as a surprise to some, as it doesn’t belong to the likes of lions, sharks, or crocodiles. Instead, this dubious distinction goes to a much smaller and sneakier entity: the mosquito.
Year after year, mosquitoes act as vectors for deadly diseases, afflicting millions of people worldwide with maladies such as malaria, dengue, chikungunya, and the Zika virus. Malaria, in particular, claims nearly 400,000 lives annually, with a majority of the victims located in sub-Saharan Africa.
Mosquitoes pose a grave threat due to their role as carriers of these lethal diseases and their adeptness at spreading them. Female mosquitoes necessitate blood to nurture their eggs, and they readily bite both animals and humans to acquire this vital sustenance. If the mosquito carries a disease, it can transmit it to the individual it bites.
