  • Mosquitos begin life in the water, where their eggs are laid in floating rafts. The larvae that emerge feed on organic material in the water while developing into pupae. Days later, an adult mosquito emerges from the water, waits for its wings to dry, and flies off.
  • Scientific Name: Culicidae
  • Characteristics: Mosquitos go through a radical transformation, spending three out of four stages living in water. As adults, only females drink blood; males are only interested in mating.
  • Size and Color: These flexible figures show how mosquitos advance through extremely distinct stages. The adult measures 4 inches from wingtip to wingtip, so all the details are magnified.
  • The Life Cycle of a Mosquito is part of the Safariology(R) collection.
  • All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free.

History

Mosquitos have pestered the rest of the animal kingdom since at least the Cretaceous period, and they sometimes became trapped in amber. Today, over 3,000 species live worldwide, and they aren't very picky eaters. Not only do mosquitos feed on human blood, but they also bite birds, mammals, and even other insects. Because they transfer diseases like West Nile and Malaria, they are considered the deadliest creatures on Earth. Interestingly, only the females have a taste for blood; males drink from flowers, and are therefore pollinators.
