Mosquito Finds Blood Vessel

This fascinating video was captured by Valerie Choument and her team from Pasteur Institute in Paris, It shows that what the already gross mouthpiece of the mosquito is quite flexible which allows it to search through the cells to find that sweet sweet blood vessel without having to fully exit the body. Think about that the next time you get bit.
