I love all animals but the ones I know I am scared of are posionious anything. Also SPIDERS, I am deathly terrified of spiders they give me the chills. I would gladly help any other animals. I love snakes, geckos, any other herp type animal. I love dogs and prefer them over cats. So what animals are you scared of?

Hello, Christina. Spiders don't bother me at all, but I'm terrified of moths. I can't stand them, and we get some big ones here in Spain. Strangely enough, I'm not scared of butterflies. Yes, I know that's not logical, but I never said I was logical, did I?

Oh cool you live in Spain? I have never known anyone from a different country. What is it like over there? What do you have that's different? What is some foods that are different there? Have you ever been to the US? I could ask millions of questions!

At the moment, it's a bit cold here,but it should warm up next month - winters are usually very mild. Where we live on the Costa Blanca, it's usually hot and dry, so the terrain is Mediterranean scrubland, although we're not far from the coast. We live between the mountains and the orange groves, and it's very beautiful. At the moment, they're harvesting the oranges, so it's interesting as well. We eat mainly Spanish food, which means lots of seafood, paella, and rustic soups and stews at this time of year. Chickpeas, tomatoes, pork and chicken figure heavily in our diet. The main difference here to the uK, where I come from, is that everyone is very relaxed - until they get on the roads, when they have to go faster than everyone else. The Spanish love to party, so their fiestas are great fun, and go on well into the night. I've been to Florida a couple of times, but that was about 20 years ago. I loved it, and I'd like to go to New England some time. Everyone I met was so friendly - just like here in Spain, really!

I love all animals but for some reason, I always freak out when it comes to spiders and certain types of bugs. Spiders bother me the most because some of them are huge and they move too quick. There is another bug called a centipede and its just as worse. Other than that, I am considered an animal lover..

Well spiders aren't animals, they are arachnids, but they are my worst fear. I am very suspicious of them and I know they have bitten me on more than one occasion. At least a mosquito is buzzing around you and you can hear him coming, but not a spider. It creeps up on you, silently, and sneaky like, even when you are sleeping. They give me the eebie jeebies something awful. I love snakes though, and my hubby is scared of them. He wouldn't go into a barn doorway once, because he saw a snake, so I caught it and chased him around the yard with it. I never knew he could run that fast. Then there was the time we were out in the field loading up square bales of hay, and when he picked 1 up, he screamed and threw it away because a snake crawled out of it. I had to stop driving the tractor, walk over and pick it up and load it myself. His son wouldn't even touch it, even though he scared the snake, too, so it crawled away. Funny. I have even been bitten by a snake, a pet one, but I still think they are neat!

Yes, I was taping something on the TV the other day, "Dirty Jobs" and the guy was getting bitten by lots of snakes. He said he had to leave the room because it gave him the eebie jeebies just watching it on TV.

LMAO yeah dang! I have been bitten a lot by baby ball pythons which is like nothing. They strike at anything that moves because they think its food. I have seen some really bad bites though. Especially some by venomous and huge snakes too! I see most of them on youtube.com
