  1. when mosquitos suck my blood with the medicine iam on they land up
    explodeing less than a couple of seconds later so if near my ear i always
    hear them do a mosquito scream followed by a pop

  2. Considering all of the nasty diseases and bacteria mosquitoes bring (
    *cough*zika*cough*) it’s no surprise that they’re number one. Also the fact
    fifty percent of the animals on this list are from Africa is also not
    surprising. To me, good contenders for part two are tigers, boa
    constricters, anaconda, bull sharks, killer whales, black widows, rats and
    mice (or at least their fleas), gorillas, dogs, and the stone fish (if
    you’re curious about the last one, look it up)
