Humans aren't the only ones that dislike snakes...
Last night my dog, Shiba, was sitting in front of my Rosy's cage and my rosy was slithering all about. Shiba kept shifting her weight and looking very uncomforable about him but kept starting. Finally after a couple minutes she make this low grunt as if to say...I don't know why but I don't like that thing....Perhaps this fear of snakes goes beyond environmental factors.
My dog is afraid of all my animals. Whether it is something as small as a hatchling leopard gecko or somethink as big as a large adult male bearded dragon. She will just move away from it or lower/turn her head, you can tell shes uncomfortable. My uncles dog on the other hand would kill ALL my animals if he had the chance. I remember when I went for a walk by a creek and I took both my uncles dog and mine. I found a neonate water snake and cought it. As soon as my uncles dog saw it he ran over and tried to rip it out of my hands. Luckily he missed the snake and got my hand instead (didnt draw blood or break the skin though) and I let the little water snake go. I have also seen him catch and kill frogs, aswell as other animals. :S
my dog is a very curious little silky terrier. She is constantly watching my snakes, and when I have one out, she wants to be up in my lap. I'm just waiting for the day that she gets too close and gets tagged. She is so inquisitive!
