Difficult bio question

Recommended Posts

In many mosquito-species the mouthparts of the females are adapted for piercing the skin of animal hosts and sucking their blood. Which mammal has the same diet as those female mosquitoes?

I hope it's not an easy question.

Not very...

I'm trying to work out if it's a bad joke or a mistake.

Anyway, as is often the case when the question is  "What eats...?", the answer is "humans

though personally, I will stick to black pudding.

Depends on whether OP means sole diet or not. If so, the answer is pretty straightforward and has been answered. Perhaps more interestingly,  East African jumping spiders indirectly feed on blood, by preferentially preying on female mosquitos who have just fed. The vampire finch is also an interesting example of diet evolution, though blood is not their sole source of nourishment.

Now what mistake did you make which led you to think that "..which will be ultimately wrong answer unless your dead body will be cremated..." was even relevant, never mind correct?

Nobody asked about what eats humans

My point was about what humans eat.

 

Did you understand that and post something deliberately irrelevant (which is called "trolling", btw)?
