Skeeters aren't really hunters or predators.

So you consider the Predators to be serial killers?  I don't think that's the angle the article was going for and why humans are not listed.  Monkey, military would be one way to go but I don't know any famous military hunters unless you were going to go in a tradition like the Red Baron or something like that..  Animals was the only way to go with this article, my opinion.

Hobbs, it's not one specific mosquito which kills 20,000 humans a year.  It's mosquitos in general.  And humans in general kill an awfully lot of other humans.  If you count warfare, genocide, homicides, automobile accidents, people who put up substandard buildings which colapse in earthquakes and kill folks etc it comes out to a lot more than 20,000.

Yeah skeeters are parasites really.

I'd rather fight a predator than a mosquito.  Misquitoes are terrifying and they ich a lot.

I don't think Predators are serial killers, but I think serial killers are hunters in a sense. Or at least the way the are portayed.

I agree that mosquitos do not belong on the list.

If I had a botfly lay its eggs in me, I would nurture and pet them til they grew up and went on their own to lay other eggs in people. In fact, i would help them out by implanting my full grown babies into my friends...   >=)  Flourish botflies!!! FLOURRRIIISSSHHH!!!!   GLLLLOORRRIOUUSSSSS!!!!!

Mosquitoes are not parasites:

Parasite: an organism that lives on or in an organism of another species, known as the host, from the body of which it obtains nutriment.

I went for the 'predator' angle because they hunt down blood bearing animals and suck their blood.  Not all predators kill.  I'm standing by it

Karas - I struggled with including people, but ultimately left them off the list because that's a whole 'nother article, and it's been done to death.

Also, the pic I included with botfly that the article is refering to can be found here:

The PREDATOR species would clear some off that list when you count the human death toll from their ancient time on Earth. The AVP rituals in those pyramids using facehuggers.

This is possibly one of the lamest lists Mania has posted to date, and that's saying something.  I don't blame you Ben, for whatever that's worth.

And how can something be more lethal than a Predator (or anything else for that matter)?  If you are killed by a mosquito, are you more dead than if you are killed by a Predator?
