Is this sentence grammatically correct ?

Ants account for more deaths than any other african creature.

My doubt is about the comparison of Ants (plural) to any other african creature (singular)

Thanks

I feel that singular can be compared with plural.

Ex: The aristocrats are richer than any one in the country.

I suspect the use of deaths.

Is it death of ants or deaths of ants.
