10 Animals We Fear That Are Usually Harmless

We all fear some animals. Right? If not you can still read this list.

The Top Ten

1 Spiders

Long legs don't hurt you because they can't penetrate skin. They kill widows and ants, so don't kill them

My sis wouldn't sweep behind the cabinet cause there was a spider - big, but harmless - Badgerflame

The creepy long legged spider most of us fear. It actually doesn't harm.

Beside those deadly ones. WHY!?!? - Koolness88

2 Alligators Alligators An alligator is a crocodilian in the genus Alligator of the family Alligatoridae. The two living species are the American alligator and the Chinese alligator. Additionally, several extinct species of alligator are known from fossil remains.

Alligators don't usually attack us. It is rare for it to happen. - Koolness88

3 Bumblebees

I think they are pretty nice. Unless you mess with them. - Koolness88

4 Snakes Snakes Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears.

Come on guys. They won't hurt. Unless it's a rattlesnake. - Koolness88

I still don't like snakes

5 Dogs Dogs The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.

I get that some might be allergic, but others? Why? Unless it is a guard dog. - Koolness88

They are very harmless.

6 Lizards

They sure are deadly. However, they try to avoid humans. - Koolness88

7 Rats Rats Rats are various medium-sized, long-tailed rodents of the superfamily Muroidea. "True rats" are members of the genus Rattus, the most important of which to humans are the black rat, Rattus rattus, and the brown rat, Rattus norvegicus.

Ok, some might see them as a pain, but most of them are quite sweet

8 Sharks Sharks Sharks are a group of fish characterized by a cartilaginous skeleton, five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and pectoral fins that are not fused to the head. Sharks have been around before the earth's first dinosaurs and even the earth's first trees.

9 Wolves Wolves Often in/from packs, Wolves are carnivorous Canines that come in various colours and breeds, and have evolved to Dogs. Some breeds of Wolves are, like Dogs, domesticated, to become a Working Dog.

They are always harmless unless you harm them! Or provoke them!

They gave us dogs. HELLO?

10 Stingray

The Contenders

11 Bear Bear

They only kill about five to ten people each year. Even less sometimes. Compared to elephants, which kill 400 people each year. And yet we view elephants as gentle giants and bears as monstrous killers.
