The crab is kinda cool. Kinda. The spider is a spider. I went to a pet store recently that had some giant spider for sale. The sign claimed it would grow to be the size of a dinner plate and that it eats birds. Ironically, it's cage sat next to a cage of baby chicks.

Probably a Goliath birdeater. It's a tarantula, and they don't really eat birds :lol:

Like Indiana Jones says, it's the little ones you have to watch out for! Big scorpions and tarantulas typically don't have a potent venom and are usually harmless. Honestly I'd rather have a big one come at me.

Spiders...and when I see a photo of spiders being all terrifying as h8ll...I have to point it out to who is near me, justifying that my fear is completely normal. I have this fear of the spider in your shoe...or a giant one coming down from a tree and biting my face/head and wrapping it's long legs around me. AHHH!

...and I also am terrified at the idea of bed bugs. It would drive me nuts to destroy them and not be able to let go of the idea I have no idea if I got them all.

I went through bed bugs twice in one year. It almost drove me to literal insanity. Luckily I got away from them the second time, and it's been over two years now.

I have a huge phobia of bees/wasps/hornets/jackets. If they come near me, depending on my mood, I may just walk away quickly or I may yell out and run away. Sometimes, they'll follow me and that's when I start crying.

The worst thing is the fact that right next to your ear, mosquitoes make a buzzing sound, so I've had a lot of false alarms.

I actually love bees and wasps, lol. I don't know why, but for some reason they really appeal to me. It's things will creepy long legs that I can't stand, like daddy-long-legs, crane flies, and millipedes. Ugh, I can't even think of millipedes without a shudder going up my spine.

Ground wasps. The thought of walking along and stepping on a nest and pissing them off

I've handled a lot of animals people are often afraid of (various lizards, snakes, tarantulas, cockroaches, etc) and I'm perfectly fine with them - the only animal that's genuinely scared me was, of all things, a turkey. Not that I'm scared of them in general, it was just that one. He was really aggressive and suddenly seemed massive when he was coming at me, haha. I did feel pretty stupid afterwards 😛

Do worms and human parasites count? If not then it would be... wasps and bees.

Cats, dogs, racoons and guinea pigs are my favourites

oh, I'm so afraid of scorpions... I know they are cool and beautiful but I saw once a man bitten by a scorpion and that's was terrible... Those guys are really dangerous in wild nature!
