Just most of you, I'm also scared of snakes. Although not all of them are poisonous but still they are a scary creature. I remember about 2-3 years ago, my and I were walking along a dark road where the only light is coming from a distant electric post. There was this something along the way that we was just a small branch of tree, but as I was about to stepped on it, it wiggles so I jumped just not step on the snake. It slightly touched my foot, when we got home my heart was beating fast and strong. I'm sure I'd get bitten by that snake if I stepped on it.

Well, 1) only some snakes are very poisonous. 2) To answer your question I'm not too scared of snakes. That being said, I have a somewhat irrational fear of spiders. The eight legs and lots of eyes really creep me out. I don't think I am even scared of their venom, just their appearance.

That's understandable. I live in California, where we don't have a lot of poisonous snake species but we have a lot of harmless ones. As a result, I don't worry much unless it's a known poisonous species and I'm within striking range.
