Ok, but your question was "what animals can you take on and survive?" I didn't claim that mosquitos aren't deadly. I claimed that one can take on a mosquito and survive.
Have you been bitten by a mosquito and not died as a result? If so, then you too have taken on a mosquito and survived.
Mosquitoes can be handled with a can of insecticide. However, you'll have slim chances of survival should you encounter, one-on-one, a full-grown lion, hippopotamus, elephant or cape buffalo. The buffalo, especially, would be the one you would be most keen to avoid.
