Malaria is a parasite which is carried by female mosquitoes (anopheles species) . This Giant Microbe is Plasmodium falciparum one of the most common parasite species.  Prevention is better than cure, so pre-travel anti-malaria medication, insect repellents, long clothes and mosquito nets are the way to go when travelling to affected areas. Malaria Giant Microbe would make a cheeky "Bon Voyage" gift, but unfortunately won't provide immunity! Giant Microbes are also excellent teaching aids as they assist students to develop an understanding of biology while taking a fun, hands on approach.

Not for children under three years of age as parts may dislodge and become a choking hazard.

Malaria is 170mm long, 50mm wide and 65mm high, made of green medium pile polyester plush with a green short pile band, polyester filling and plastic eyes.
