Mosquitoes often bugging human being, especially at night or during summer. They suck human blood as their  food, making human feel itchy and sore. Because of their tininess,  they are often considered weak and helpless. However, do you know that these tiny insects are also amazing creatures in its own way.

1) Only female mosquitoes  suck human blood. The males are nectar feeder, meaning that they are vegetarian.  Therefore the naughty one is the female.

2) Mosquitoes have 100 eyes on his head. I wonder how much it will cost to buy spectacles for a mosquito.

3) They have  48 teeth in their  mouth. I never thought they have even one because they are so tiny.

4) They have three hearts at the abdomen. How very lucky they are for having that much. However, they still do not live that long compared to human with one heart.

5) They have six knives in their trunk. Each one will be used for different task. If mosquitoes can cook, maybe they will be very good chef.

6) They have three wings on not just two like many people thought.

7) They are equipped with tools like infrared heat detectors that reflect the human skin into purple. This will enable them to see in dark so that they can start sucking the blood. This lamp is very cost effective because it only using natural energy resources.

8) They have the anesthesia tools. However,  why feel itchy when they are on our skin? Human will only get itchy when the mosquito start sucking the blood.

9) They are equipped with a blood filter device so that they will suck certain type of blood.

10) The most remarkable thing to ponder is that the abdomen of a mosquito is a habitat for another kind of insect. This insect will only become visible under a microscope.
