    I am terrified of cows. Yep. Cows.

    I’m totally irrationally afraid of spiders, cockroaches and a few other creepy crawlies, especially any which move fast.

    I won’t go near snakes (and Australian ones are particularly deadly), but I’m not really afraid of them in the same way. I give them a wide berth but I don’t freak out or anything. I think the difference is they don’t come near our suburban house.

    Pretty much anything that’s not domesticated. Even dogs that I see outside: no leash and/or person, I’m walking the other way.

    in particular- Skunks, possums, coyotes, bears, fisher cats, deer, turtles, birds, gophers, moles…

    Sharks scare the shit outta me. We have had a few attacks around and where we vacation and its always a frightening thought .

    Fucking roaches. I HATE roaches. Nonthing turns me into a screaming, sniveling child faster than a roach.

    All bee-like creatures that aren’t bumblebees. Wasps/hornets/yellowjackets/etc. I’ve utterly flipped out in my office when one came in the window.

    Crabs!!!!!! Especially those see-thru ones. I was in Costa Rica on the beach and saw SOOO many of them close to me, and I’ve never been the same since.

    Snakes and spiders all the way; snakes make me gag to look at them (I would never touch one) and looking at spiders makes me cringe and itch. Ugh

    I am well afraid of spiders and snakes too 🙂 Other things I fear: ground plovers (bird) and frogs. All frogs. In fact I am not keen on any reptiles at any point…ever.

    @Catcat1:  Lol. And I don’t mean to laugh – but that’s the first time I’ve heard anyone be afraid of cows! Have you always been afraid of them or was there a particular incident??
