Lady on "Jeopardy" tonight claims to be afraid of fish. She says as a child she fell into the trout tank at a fish farm. Said it felt like a mattress of squirming bodies.

That's easy to deal with; feed the chickens to the alligators.

Now if I just have a chicken when I see an alligator, I will have no fear

Venomous. Pictures elsewhere in this thread.
Poisonous animals are usually pretty easy to avoid:

Any farm boy will tell you to be wary around chickens. The will chase and peck if bothered.

Encountered a pair in the Smokies years ago. Remember the training about stepping up on a log and then over, and not just jumping over stuff in the woods? We did it that way and there they were on the sunny side of a dead fall. Camp Councillors caught and killed them. Still have the rattles somewhere.
