Caption: Mosquito feeding on human skin. Anopheles mosquito feeding on human blood. An expelled droplet of blood is on the tip of the mosquito's abdomen. Female Anopheles mosquitos feed on vertebrate blood to produce their eggs. If they are infected with the Plasmodium malaria parasite, the saliva will transmit this to their host. Malaria, a debilitating and intermittent fever that can kill, affects hundreds of millions in the world's tropical and sub-tropical regions.
