Leopard geckos make me want to climb up the nearest tree.. lol

I don't think I am afraid of any herp, although I do have a healthy dose of respect for them, especially venomous species and very large constrictors/monitors.

LOL Edwin!! Hehe... Leos are the cutest, sweetest things ever Well, except for a few that I've heard of

Personally -- I'm definitely over my snake phobia (LOL -- guess it wasn't too firmly entrenched ) -- but spiders freak me out -- even the little ones, but especially the big ones -- I just don't understand the appeal of having a big hairy ugly insect for a pet. But hey, to each his own... If it's in a cage, I'll go into the same room with it... but that's as close as I'll get

So Linds, you'd be afraid of someone running at you with a gun, but you wouldnt be afraid of people. Thats irrelevant as you like to say, because you would be afraid of people with guns wouldnt you? Just because you're not afraid of people as a whole you are afraid of a gun wielder. And don't be childish and say "iam not afraid of Police" because that IS different.

cranky, snippy feeding snakes scare me! Like most snakes get agressive when they feed, and sometimes that can get a lil freaky, especially when they are a few feet bigger than you!

I used to be arachniphobic but i've seen so many pics on here and in magazines.....I managed to get over the fear, now I have to convince the other half that it'd be ok to have a tarantula and scorpion in the house. Good topic

I have a very healthy respect for anything that is bigger then me and I couldn't control on my own. Now a python with an attitude, that could turn into a issue of fear I believe

V. aw.....being afraid of people coming at you with guns is MUCH different, they are coming at you and intending to do harm.
And i think you would agree that a black mamba is not looking to harm people, so you cant compare the two

what Linds was saying was that she would be afraid of people coming at her with would I....but she respects (rather than fears) some reptiles, because they can potentially harm, but wouldnt seek you out to harm you! Fear and respect are MUCH different.

Ive worked with venomous snakes and can sat honestly that i have no <b>fear</b> for them, but some make me aprehensive and weary and of course demand respect

FRIGHT and PHOBIA and two completely different things. I don't know how anyone could confuse them.

I have a phobia of gravid snakes dying or giving slugs.
