comment Why does belief in Judaism require irrationality?
there you go again assuming you understand God - why not have a look at that lecture by rabbi becher. here's a bonus quote from the shaar bitachon ch.3 The ways of judgments of the Creator are too deep, hidden and lofty for us to understand part of them, and all the more so to understand their general principles. And the verse already says: "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts [higher] than your thoughts" (Yeshaya 55:9).

@bondonk his approach is what bothers the rabbonim. what he is saying between the lines. read this for example ohr.edu/judaism/nature-apikorsas/natur007.txt which in my opinion has a tone, a between the lines message which is very problematic. very suspicious.

slifkin is a controversial figure. many rabbis hold his views are not reliable. that verse certainly does not sound like a plain old hippo which is not much bigger than a common nile croc

comment What is the purpose of the mosquito?
@IsaacMoses there may be other purposes, as other answers pointed out, but the point is that there does not have to be a particular purpose for each and every specie or aspect of creation as the OP seems to assume
