Forget about lions, tigers, and sharks. The following graphic, courtesy of Statista.com, shows which animals are the real killers: mosquitoes.
Diseases carried by mosquitoes, like malaria, kill an estimated 725,000 people every year, more than the number killed by other people (475,000), snakes (50,000), or dogs (25,000). Meanwhile, sharks kill about 10 people per year.
