Catfish are cute and sweet! I promise they won't attack you. (:

Ew.. some bugs really freak me out, and you peeps have managed to name two of them.. spiders and ticks. xD We keep finding brown recluses in our yard and on our porch, it's really starting to scare me. Here, we have those and black widows.

You will always be my best friend, .

Arent brown recluse spiders the spiders that enjoy living in sock drawers and toy chests? Yet another reason I will never go to Australia and apparently East Tennessee! To many creepy crawlies. I also have an intense dislike for crocodiles. Thats why I cant retire in Florida. Honestly, I dislike so many animals I'm considering just living in a huge city when I get older!

I heard placos are pretty friendly.....unless you get them around a baby! I hear they will eat a human baby in a heart beat! And they also dislike mayonnaise? I read all this on the interwebz..so its gotta be true!

The only fish that creeps me out are silver carp/bighead carp. I had one jump out of the water last year and it hit me right in the chest..knocked the wind rite out of me!

Yep. We used to hang our clothes up on a clothes line, until one was nesting in a shirt. Now we just pay the extra money to have clothes dried. I have to research methods of abolishing these evil monsters. There are black bears here, too, but those are less scary, because at least I could see one of those attempting to hide in my sock drawer!
Edit: Brown recluse bites are also the ones that cause necrosis..

You will always be my best friend, .
