This mosquito is enormous, but fortunately it won’t buzz in your ears… Unfortunately it carries with it 4 diseases: Zika virus, West Nile virus, malaria and Dengue fever.

Did you know?
There are about 3000 species of mosquitoes but Culex pipens is most prevalent on the planet, you won’t be able to get away from it unless you move to Antarctica!
The mosquito is 12 in long (30 cm) and its miniature diseases (approximately 2in long each) hide themselves in the pockets located near the salivary glands and her belly (as in real life!)
