    What is the one animal or insect that freaks you out the most?

    Excluding cockroaches of course. It depends also if you are all alone or are protecting your pet or small child.  For me, I freaked over a Gila Monster crawling from underneath my car and my little dog Chuggers was being curious. But that was because I was worried about my dog dying.  For me alone - I did leap up & hovered in the air going six ways at the same time like a wacky cartoon when I woke up to a Arizona Giant Centipede that was 12 " from my hand

    Spiders most definitely.  We need them in the world to kill mosquito's and flies but still....they're creepy!

      First time I saw a camel spider I thought it was a mouse going vertically along my counter stand. (!!!)

    Pretty much all insects scare the living crap out of me, I HATE them.  I have an especially hard time with crane flies even though they're harmless, but they look like giant mosquitoes and they're dumb as hell and seem to fly AT YOUR FACE if given the chance. 

    The only insects that don't make me go flying out of my chair are butterflies and, strangely, bees.  Though wasps are the devil.

    As for animals... I guess bears?  It's the only really threatening animal I've ever seen in person (not at a zoo).
