The Most Irritating Creatures of AllBook - 2017
From the horror of finding a blood-engorged leech attached to our leg, to the annoyance of a buzzing mosquito - we are all fascinated by bloodsucking creatures. The myth of Dracula could not exist without real life creatures with the same macabre habit. But before we call them all evil, it is important to understand why they do it. In most cases only the female of the species searches for blood, as this gives her the protein to make eggs. Therefore it is essential for producing the next generation.
