Not really afraid of either, I would like to avoid the poisonous ones but that's more pragmatic

#2 Edited by Immortal777 (6874 posts) - - Show Bio

Hard choice not afraid of either.

Snakes, spiders you can step on.

I dont like calling it fear but mid sized spiders creep me out and I generally avoid being close.. Ive had pet snakes so dont really mind them.

For those of you thinking 'snakes', I'll leave this here.

That's not snow. Those are spider-webs.

Lots of them.

@xanni15: Who knows but you can still step on one.

@xanni15: Some of them tho other snakes would just get pissed off if you stepped on them

#11 Posted by The Stegman (23031 posts) - - Show Bio

Neither, bees, wasps, hornets and other flying, stinging insects are what frighten me.

@immortal777: Obviously. :P I just meant more often then not when you step on a spider it's gonna die. Snakes, not so much.

@joshmightbe: Thanks for the info, I know nothing about them other than the occasional garden snake in my yard.

I've had pet snakes my whole life, so I guess the answer is spiders. But, I'm not afraid of all spiders. Any web spider, jumping spider or most tarantulas are not scary. Wolf spiders and wood spiders freak me out, mostly because they are gross and could potentially be a brown recluse, whose bite I am scared of.

I don't fear them any more than I fear anything else that has the potential to kill me or do me harm.

I am severely, freakishly, arachnaphobic. So, spiders.

#19 Edited by joewell (6248 posts) - - Show Bio

Spiders, i just hate bugs in general, especially the small ones

#20 Edited by Sideslash (5907 posts) - - Show Bio

Neither! I feel no fear!

Owning a Ball Python has made me a little less edgy around snakes, so I'm gonna go with spiders.

I despise both, but the idea of a snake or snakes attacking me freaks me the f### out, so snakes win.

I kind of like them both.

I more afraid in snakes. Theyre more dangerous and poisonous.

Spiders.

#34 Posted by Aiden Cross (15562 posts) - - Show Bio

I have no problem with snakes or little spiders. But when those spiders reach the size of a hand.... Then i don't really feel the need to be near to them :p

#35 Posted by Samimista (20597 posts) - - Show Bio

Almost thought this had to do with the game with how you capitalized FEAR.

I used to fear snakes but I don't anymore. As odd as this may sound Metal Gear actually helped with my phobia. People tend to forget that snakes fear us just as much as we fear them. People also tend to get creep out when snakes eat other animals but in reality that's just their way of survival just like how some of us may eat cows and pigs.

Spiders I've always feared though but snakes I absolutely love. If I could I would own one but my parents hate snakes.

#39 Posted by Vaeternus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio

I think people are lying when they say they're not concerned/afraid of either, if you see a poisonous spider or snake near you, you're not bright if you don't take fear or concern into account lol.

While I personally don't have a "fear" of either per-se, I DO take both with caution depending on the breed. A house spider is nothing, they can't penetrate your skin and can be killed easily, now a black widow on the other hand or wolf spider or tarantula anyone should take with caution for common sense reasons...their poison can kill you or harm you severe.

A snake, being as how there's more poisonous snakes out there then non...just don't go near it, if you step on it pray it's not a super poisonous one...lol. Overall, I'd take more caution with snakes in terms of the natural, outside world as it's hard to see them. A spider if they hear you coming will most likely move anyway, depending where you live black widows can live in a basement so it's all about where you live, Aussy also has some nasty ones that you have to worry about that can go into your house.

So honestly it depends where you live, the area. Where I live we have neither thankfully, but if it's poisonous and it can hurt me then I show logical concern, sometimes you have to fear or show concern over something unless you're just stupid and want to get bit.

@xanni15: You could step on a snake.

@immortal777: Would it kill them?

@xanni15: Who knows but you can still step on one.

Lol that was funny. +1 to you.

Something about how Insects and Arachnids look just sends a shiver down my spine. At least with snakes they look familiar. Spiders just are so non human its freaky.

Being a huge Fallout fan nothing makes me cringe and rage like a pack of cazadors.

I'm fine with them as long as they can't kill me, spiders...a little less

#47 Posted by theDCkid (874 posts) - - Show Bio

Spiders are scarier, nothing should have that many appendages. But snakes are cool (zero appendages)

So by my logic the more limbs the creepier.

#48 Posted by Dabee (2379 posts) - - Show Bio

Spiders have never bothered me, and I've never seen a snake out of containment. I feel like if I were to see a snake, though, I'd probably freak out. I hate how they just stand up and stare at you...

#49 Posted by ssejllenrad (12847 posts) - - Show Bio

Snakes but I'm not really afraid of them. I'm disgusted by them. I'm afraid to be poisoned but that goes beyond the animal itself. But I played with spiders quite a lot of times when I was a kid.
