I'm not sure how skeeters would react to a dino hide, but with furred
animals (like my aussie), they'llluster around the face, where the fur is
less and there's exposed skin. I would suppose that the mosquitoes would
adapt and find vulnerable places on the dinosaurs. This cuold well have
been also the face area.
