What animals are you afraid of?


Recommended Posts

As otherkin, we are far more closely connected to animals than most other humans. However, that doesn't make nature any less scary sometimes. What creatures of the natural world give you the shivers?

*casual googling*...?

Moths, daddy long legs and to a lesser extent wasps and dragon flies if they get too close. I'm a bit wary of a lot of flying insects. 

 

Omg I had a close encounter with a wasp a few days ago and it was terrible ;v; I was in the car and one had snuck in and landed on my arm!

Spiders.

 

Spiders so much.

 

When I was like 10 or so I was over at this kid I was friends with's house, and I was helping him and his dad shovel wood chips, and a wolf spider the size of my fist came at me (in all honesty it probably wasn't that big) and it ignored them even though they were closer and came for me. I screamed and smashed it with the shovel, then ran away screaming and then I cried. 

 

I hate spiders.

 

Im better now in that from far away I can ignore them, but if they come at me, they are not living much longer. I always /try/ to catch them and bring them outside because I feel bad when they are just living and not trying to get me, but if they move towards me they've sealed their destiny. No sympathy, only deep hatred.

 

>;n;> no spiders for me

I got stung on the eyelid once, walked over an underground wasps nest by accident and the wasps came swarming out. Little bastards didn't even give me time to explain myself. 😛 I looked ridiculous and had to wear sunglasses for days to hide it

Even though I like to this I'm brave, I'm really not lol.  If any animal were to approach me, or any insect for that matter, I'll probably freak out.  I always think everything is out to get me, I'm very anxious.  I like watching from afar, but if anything gets too close I'll scream.  ~ Cameron, The Saccharine System

When it comes to animals, I think I only actively feel any kind of fear if it's something displaying obvious aggression, or I'm not able to read its body language. Most of the time I'll act cautiously and mentally prepare myself to react should anything go downhill. I love animals, and I'd probably be very nervous around say, live sharks - but I'd still gladly dive in with them and pet them if I were able to (in a controlled environment obviously). I'm a person that kind of sees fear as a learning opportunity, so if I'm afraid of something I will always question why and try and get to the bottom of it, especially if it involves animals. 

 

It's funny because I used to be terrified of wasps - but after finding out my husband was even MORE terrified of them (he holed himself up in our bathroom and refused to come out when one got in the house), I realized I couldn't be afraid of them anymore. So when one gets in the house I will either do my best to get it out of the house, or kill it as a last resort. I try to avoid most stinging insects but being outside, it's not always possible. 

 

TL;DR: I'm afraid when it makes sense for ME to be afraid - if I'm actively being attacked or something. Or if it's a giant spider that drops from the ceiling and bites my leg (...don't ask).

I used to be the designated person to remove spiders from the tents when camping. In kindergarten, I removed a small snake from the sandbox while everyone else around me was screaming and running away. I probably gave my teacher quite a few grey hairs. (I'd probably leave the snake alone now that I'm older.) 

 

I have a healthy respect for scorpions, snakes, and tarantulas, and occasionally see them when camping. There aren't really any animals that freak me out on sight unless, as Teakwood said, they look aggressive.

this is soooo stupid, but... FRicKEN cOws! ever since I was little, I had night terrors of robotic cows taking my family and I hostage,  and it would result in all of us... dying..?... anyway, when I see a cow, to this day, I shudder....  OH!! Once when I was in 2nd grade, my parents took my siblings and I to Oklahoma, and we went to a farm there...  There were brown cows and black cows... for some reason the brown cows I didn't care about, but the black ones, I remember I started screaming.... so yeah... weird fears...

I am terrified of snakes, yet I own a turtle XP. And even sometines I'm a little scared of his claws.

 

And I totally agree on the spider thing, after watching one of those videos, then literally a spider crawls on my ceiling for a good 10 mins, nope, sorry tarantula, I can't own you whatsoever.

 

Speaking of which, is the tarantula part of the spider family?

 

 

Heyo all! I just lurk hehe, dont mind if i pop up in a convo randomly <3

I think you mean arachnid. Which yes, tarantulas are arachnids along with all other spiders and even scorpions.

(I've already talked about this before, but-) Weirdly enough, despite being a giant melanistic dragon, I'm afraid of most melanistic animals, and I'm unsure as to why. Melanistic coyotes for example, they make me feel so... hfhhHDHhg-

 

I also have a pretty rational nervousness towards animals that are bigger than me and could overpower me, though I think it's only the thought of it, as I've physically gotten calmly next to big wolves / wolf hybrids or even just regular powerful dogs, and have never really feared the big cats that I've encountered, instead I'd actually try to rub heads with the cats through the glass enclosures or communicate with them casually in other ways.

 

Aaand dead bugs. Not live ones, I'll chill with any type of bug at any time - unless it's dead. No idea why, but dead bugs kick in my fight or flight response.

I fear bees, wasps/hornets/etc, and jellyfish to an irrational level. It's not quite a phobia, I don't think... But being around them will put me into F/F/F mode. Likely tied to my run-in with an underground bees nest at, like, age 5 or so. No experience with jellyfish, though, so I don't know why I'm so uncomfortable about them... Thankfully, that's all. I can handle any other animal with a quite level had.

Potato bugs. Have you ever seen a potato bug? Cursed. So cursed. I used to have a roach phobia (literally nearly blacking out when I saw one) that I managed to recover from, but I don't know if I'll ever be able to get over potato bugs.

 

Also hippos. Not in general - if I saw a photo or a video of a hippo, I would probably think it was cute. If I saw one in the wild, though, and it was anywhere near me, I would be absolutely terrified. Same with other biggums like moose and bison.
