    I am not a fan of horses since the time one bit me when I went to pet it.

     

    Also geese, yes, scared of those f-ers!!!!!!!!!!

     

    And absolutely 100% petrified by spiders bigger than 1cm. 

     

    I went for a bushwalk two months ago and there was a red belly black snake sunning itself on the path, which I didn’t see until I had almost stepped on it! I freaked the f out!!!!!!!! Snake was 2 metres long and 8cm thick 🙁

    I’m scared of pretty much all animals.  Reptiles and insects don’t bother me but everything else does.

    I cannot STAND spiders and I’ve been that way as long as I can remember. I’m always afraid that there could be one waiting for me around every corner or every time I reach into a dark space. Even if they’re dead, I don’t want them touching me. I’ve been even more afraid of them since 2 years ago when I was at the family beach house and a black widow fell out of an umbrella I was carrying, landed on my chest, and bit me. I screamed and brushed it off, then ran from it, but it dragged behind me because it was still attached to me by its web, until my dad killed it for me. Lol

    I’m afraid of sharks, but I’ll still go in the ocean.

    And I’m afraid of rattlesnakes, which makes sense because I’ve seen quite a few of them. I live in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas and they seem to like it here.

    Mice. I realize that they are fairly harmless little creatures, but I will scream and jump for high ground if I see on (in the house or enclosed area, not so much outside).

    And sharks! Ever since watching Jaws at the age of 8 or 9, I will not go in the ocean, and I refused to go in the Gulf of Thailand. I realize that there are very few shark fatalities each year, but still. Just can’t do it!

    I’m generally not afraid of other animals. Once you know how an animal thinks they lose their scariness. I find the idea of drowning far more petrifying than any animal.

    @novacaineandlaughter:  Today my mom offered me and my sister $5 to kill a roach. I was ok watching it walk around (grossed out, but ok), but when it came time for me to get close enough to it to kill it, I panicked. My 11 year old sister killed it and got the $5. Saaaaaaaaad.

    That’s about it though. I’ve even been bitten by a snake and still don’t mind them/even would say I like them. Fiance is terrified of snakes though.

    Cats really freak me out, sneaky little buggers. I just will not go anywhere near them! Bugs, spiders and snakes!

    Im scared of horses. They are so big and if they want to hurt or trample you, there is nothing you can do about it. I love pretty much all other animals tho.
