I'm respectful of them, but not afraid of them. Spiders on the other hand.... EEEEK!

Lisa phrased my feelings exactly! Although I have a very healthy respect for Nile monitors.

Although I do try hard to conquer my arachnophobia it's embedded really deeply. And I'm a Scorpio, for heaven's sake!

HyGhBr|d, after working with you i know you dont like red tegus, or tokays.

I agree with the fear aspect. its more respect. Linds, i guarentee you your opinion would change if i threw a black mamba at you, or you had a large monitor running at you.

I would say the only herp I would be "afraid" of is any dangerous species in the wrong person's hands. More afraid of the "herper" than the herp.

I've delt with angry monitors, and large hungry snakes that believed I was the meal. I do not work with venomous snakes, and I intend on keeping it that way as I have no interest in working with them. And no, my opinion has not been changed, nor would it, I have a healthy respect for anything that can potentially kill me, not a fear. I have a phobia of spiders which I am trying so desperately to shed, and I can tell you that the two are very different feelings

The comparison you made is completley irrlevant. If a person came running at me with a gun I might be afraid, doesn't mean I'm afraid of people
