CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Sharks, snakes or humans… What do you think is the most dangerous animal on Earth?

If you are judging by how many people are killed per year by the animal, the answer is mosquitoes. No other animal even comes close to matching the death toll caused by the tiny organism.

Mosquitoes kill about 725,000 people a year. Humans come in second killing about 475,000. Rounding out in last place is the shark, killing only about 10 people per year.
