Common Animal Phobias

These are the most common animal phobias. Hope you enjoy the list
The Top Ten
1 Arachnophobia (fear of spiders)

I have it. But a lot of people say 'they're afraid of spiders so they have arachnophobia' That's not true.
Arachnophobia really means that you hyperventilate when you get close to a spider, avoid places where they are, or even get scared when seeing a picture of a spider.

THAT'S arachnophobia.

I have Arachnophobia and it's horrible I always try avoid places with spiders and when someone shows me a picture of a spider I try my very best not to freak out. All because of a horrible experience with them.

I'm fine with spiders. They're harmless, and also useful if you have a fly problem. Arachnophobia would make sense in somewhere like Brasil, but here in England, there's no reason to fear spiders.

2 Ophiophobia (fear of snakes)

I find this animal cute and a good pet! My mom won't let me buy one because she has Ophiophobia.

3 Spheksophobia (fear of wasps)

I've had a fear of them getting into my shirt ever since exactly that happened. I had to thrust my shirt over my head on the street to get it off, after which my back looked like a flattened strawberry. I would not want that to happen again.

They are so annoying. They always seem to find our homes.

4 Cynophobia (fear of dogs)

I really hate Dogs, they're scarier than Spiders in my opinion.

5 Muriphobia (fear of mice)
6 Apiophobia (fear of bees)
7 Elurophobia (fear of caterpillars)
8 Ichthyophobia (fear of fish)
9 Ornithophobia (fear of birds)

This is my cousin. She runs away and locks herself in the bathroom until the bird is back in his cage.

10 Felinophobia (fear of cats)
The Contenders
11 Entomophobia (fear of insects)
