Nothing sends me running away screaming like ticks. I usually catch and release spiders, even black widows. But ticks, no thanks. All four of my rabbits were rescued after being abandoned in parks and I knew I loved them when I spent 20 min. a day picking ticks off of them for a week.

Plecos are cute and all, but the one thing that creeps me out the most are CICADAS. I just moved here from the Philippines, so I'm really not used to them, especially when they are flying and making the clicking sound.

One flew on my bed when I was 16, scared me so much that I cried

Open your eyes
Now is the time
To rise up
With darkness we'll still shine

lol. I'd probably shout and run as far as I can.

Thread is getting too off-topic?

You can give a female a hug, they aren't poisonous

All I can say is to get rid of your fear try hanging out with a pleco in a friend's house or a Pet store near you. The sooner you appreciate it's cleaning and sucking, the more you can get rid of your fear.
