Anyone else deathly afraid of snakes?

I have a big fear of rattlesnakes! In this video I was rooting for the bobcat the whole time.

I’m afraid of snakes, but maybe not as bad now that I’m older. My grandmother told me when I was little I was poking a poisonous snake (I don’t remember the exact one she said), and the dog went and bit it’s head off in front of me.

I would rather die from a poison bite of a small snake than being swallowed alive by a non venomenous big snake like the Anaconda.

They have freakin’ alligators here!! Those monsters will drag you down to the bottom of a river or swamp, roll you over and over until they drown you, and then eat you. No joke!!! THAT scares me!!

Thanks @Moonstruck. I’m not as bad about being afraid now. I live in downtown Little Rock and don’t see wildlife anymore.

As a teenager I had a pet ball python…it was a novel pet and pretty cool to carry around, but after a couple of years it was pretty boring. So, no, I don’t fear snakes…I fear big, furry-ass spiders!

I live in a town named after the carpet snake. It’s a harmless constrictor that gets pretty big but with residential moving in they are getting rare. I’m not a fan. We have too many really dangerous snakes out here although most are out in the bush…still. I’ve seen enough in my life to not risk annoying them.

I love snakes! My sister owns a python, and it is just the sweetest danger noodle ever.

I’m thinking about getting one for myself somewhere down the line.

Insects and snakes both freak me the heck out.
