Why do misquotes like the taste of blood

Report as

Only female mosquitoes bite, though all mosquitoes live on the sugar found in plant nectar, not on blood. (they bite for protein and the produce of eggs to produce more baby mosquitoes).

Well, only female mosquitoes suck blood. They get it for nutrients, i think.

It's an instinct to crave what you need. Why do people like the taste of food? For mosquitos blood is their food, and if they didn't like it they would have died out long ago.

Nolla the mosquito has a proboscis for a mouth, it's basically like a hypodermic needle. The mosquito injects the proboscis into the skin, injects it's saliva which contains an anti coagulant which keeps the blood from clotting, and then it sucks out the blood. It would be unable to eat solid food. because of it's anatomy.

Oh I forgot males are able to suck the nectar from plants this way but apparenlty the females suck blood to prepare for reproduction.
