I have to admit, there aren’t a whole lot of animals that give me the heebie jeebies. However, snakes are one of these animals.
Having spent a big chunk of my life in the California desert, I am pretty used to Rattlesnakes and other various poisonous snakes. Since basically all snakes there are poisonous, I really wanted absolutely nothing to do with them! Unlike some people, I will not be posting a picture of snakes.
One year, there was a severe shortage of Rattlesnake anti-venom. This was in the early 2000s, if I recall correctly. Anyway, there were all sorts of public service announcements stating that we should stay away from rattlers (well, duh!) and probably shouldn’t go hiking. Ok, I can get behind that!
Not to mention the various scorpions, spiders, tarantulas, and other various creepy crawlies.
I also am not a huge fan of grasshoppers and crickets. I don’t like those mainly for the reasons that you never know where the buggers are gonna go!
Oddly enough, I have no issue with lizards or other reptiles. We’re cool with one another.
What about you? What kind of critters give you the heebie jeebies?
