Mosquitoes are insects that appear nominally in the DreamWorks Dragons Franchise.

Description

Mosquitoes are insects of the Order Diptera - making them related to flies and of the Family Culicidae. As with other insects, they have six legs and have wings. Mosquitoes need water in which to lay their eggs, but what water each species needs can vary widely. Some can lay their eggs in saltwater. Some need rivers and streams or lakes. Some can make use of any bit of collected standing water such as puddles or tree hollows.

Of course I know about algae! It kind of stinks sometimes, but the mosquitoes love it. Yuck! The males are herbivores; they only eat plants. The females are omnivores; they feed off of plants and animals.

This School of Dragons factoid is somewhat unspecific. The larvae of many species of mosquitoes do eat algae and bacteria. Adult mosquitoes however have a varied diet - females of species significant to humans take blood meals, males of those same species may subsist on sugar sources such as nectar.

Function

Mosquitoes have no role in the Franchise, other than for educational purposes.

The fish are really active out there today eating those mosquitoes.

In reality, while mosquitoes are an important part of ecosystems and food chains, they also serve a disease vectors for humans and other creatures.
