Top Ten Reasons Why People Shouldn't Be Scared of Spiders


The Top Ten

1 Depending on the spider, if it bites you, you should be fine

I've had a brown recluse on my face. Do you think I stood there thinking "it's okay it's only a venomous spider the size of a half dollar on my face" Nope, I screamed (I was 7) and swatted at my face and killed it. No venomous spiders in my house. Or any for that matter. I like jumping spiders and garden spiders since they are less likely to bite. Respect peoples' phobias. - Katekat123

I live in Australia and I don't care about the spiders I've been bitten by one and I was fine there are some dangerous ones but doing your day to day stuff you won't find any dangerous spiders anywhere

In my country, there are NO spiders that would do any potential harm. Fearing them is purely irrational if you live in the UK, but more rational if you live somewhere like Australia. My cousins do, and they're not bothered by the spiders there at all. - PositronWildhawk

This is true,Because we have had many venomous spiders and some not

4 They are more afraid of you than you are of them

Then why do they always crawl on ME!?

Spiders, snakes, centipedes, and skme other animals people fear...actually fear people too! - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

5 Just because tarantulas are hairy doesn't mean they are gross

I've held a tarantula, and it felt soft and furry like a kitten (a lot uglier though).

6 They only bite you if they sense they are in danger, like you freaking out if it crawls on you

People who disturb their peaceful habitat are bound to be bitten. - jerk4life

They only attack for self-defense or when they feel harmed - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

7 People say they are worse than sharks, crocs, tigers and other dangerous animals. What would you rather be bit by, a tiny spider with venom that will barely hurt you, or a shark
8 The way they kill or get food (by biting with venom, or drinking the inside out, or catching in a web) is just how they get food, it's not evil, it's life

Sharks can eat my neck off, that's scary.

10 In the prehistoric age, before dinosaurs were around, they were almost 4 feet long. V 1 Comment
