Natural reaction to a potentially deadly creature.

We know spiders and snakes etc. can fuck us up real bad if we get bit so we have a natural aversion reaction.

How they look doesnt help their case either. I only kill them if they are a roaming house invader.

Re: So what is it with spiders and human fear of them? Spiders are one of humans greatest phobia's
Two common theories, maybe a little of both.

1. Living in caves for thousands of years made us wary.

2. Like the centipede, the spiders form is so alien to us it invokes a natural xenophobic reaction to survive.

Spiders don't phase or bother me. I don't kill them unless they are a black widow, which I've twice been bitten by. But not as bad as I expected either, just a nice red sore stinging for 2 weeks. Spiders eat lots of other insects, thank goodness, they help out. I treat spiders like praying mantises..

Snakes are a little different. Mostly, just don't like rattlesnakes too much, but see 'em out there quite alot. They haven't tried to bite, even as I often inadvertently jog 2'-3' away.

Scorpions are cool, not too scary, but sometimes hard to smash with their exoskeleton shell. I once saw one approaching me in a grocery store on the floor, bag boy kept stomping on it about 4-5 times.

A potato bug is a cool insect. Nothing to fear.

A few years back I was driving between Reno and Doyle, CA and stopped at the gas station there at 395 and 70, and I was surrounded by millions of Mormon Crickets as I walked into the store. Pretty bizarre scene, if you haven't ever seen the swarming if those huge things all over the ground. I wondered where all the gulls were to eat those things up..

Cobras are probably the spookiest animal out there for me.

Because they're deadly and I imagine back in the caveman days they were a hundred times their size now.
