snakes, of course but everyone tends to fear them. What I'm just as afraid of is a lizard!!! I have no idea why but lord have mercy I am so scared of them. Everyone tells me it's silly and to them maybe it is but it's a real fear for me.

Yes, Kodiak Island, AK. Black bears can kill you too, but are typically not aggressive. I give them a wide berth though.

The 2 inch Southern roaches that fly around outdoors at night and sometimes manage to make their way indoors. They are so gross to look at and even sound creepy, like dry leaves rustling. Whenever I come across one, screaming sissy time.

Spiders, I had a bite on my leg that turned into a 4 inch diameter hard as a rock red spot and shot a red line clear up to my crotch.
I spent 2 days in the hospital on a I.V antibiotic drip before they let me go home and continue with pills until it was gone.
To this day I go gangsta when I see one.

They hang out close to my house...on the patio looking for ants, outside my screened porch looking in...maulings happen most often, usually to trail hikers.
