Do Tell: What Animal Could you do Without?

Lions and tigers and bears -- OH MY! While some people are avid animal lovers, others aren't blessed with that immediate connection with "man's best friend". I happen to love dogs, cats, rabbits, and anything furry and lovable, but I am utterly terrified of snakes, iguanas, really anything in the reptile family and would be much happier if I never had to see a mosquito again in my life! So what about you -- what animals could you do without?

Birds, they make so much noise, especially crows!!! Any sort of creepy crawly bug grosses me out. June bugs are repulsive, but not as bad as potato bugs. I just dry heaved thinking about them, seriously! Once a potato bug got into my bedroom somehow, and it kept bumpong into the wall. The thing was so big it woke me up. Needless to say, I freaked out big time! ;P

Bugs, reptiles, the usual, especially roaches and ticks, everything has its place in the food chain, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.

bees - i am allergic i don't like cockroaches or silverfish either. i can't forget the fly and mosquito, and of course crows, thanks girls for reminding me of the evilness of crows.

Roaches - to be sure. God made all creatures great and small...except cockroaches. They are spawn of the devil. They survive nuclear fallout. You can microwave one (so i've heard) and it will crawl away. They are sick and wrong.

Eels. Definitely eels. They just creep me out. I'm totally okay with snakes though. I just look at eels like overgrown worms with teeth. EWWWWWW!

cockroaches are horrible, and I don't like fish very much (especially swimming with them) and all the dangerous ocean animals like jellyfish or other poisonous animals. Insects in general too.

I try to appreciate all animals (I especially love bees. And cats. And dogs, cows, alpacas and giant squid). But I could really do without mosquitos and cockroaches. Also, I have nothing against birds, but for some reason birds don't like me! When I was on my honeymoon, a bird stole my croissant one day, another bird bit me, and one bird (a parrot) who talked to everyone refused to talk to me. What did I ever do to birds?!

Spiders for sure! They freak me out. As a kid, my bed was by the window. There was a spider in the window. My brother knocked it off and I didn't know where it went. I didn't sleep in my bed for weeks! Uggg I hate all those legs!

Spiders I guess. But only the big ones, little ones I can handle. By the way, I recommend you NOT to google "camel spider", unless you want to have nightmares for a week. A 'friend' thought it was funny to let me look that up. :(

Horses...they are just too big and I'm really scared of them.

lol @ Fab4, I was going to put "the Religious Right" but took it down out of fear of people taking me (too) seriously :)

Insects are in fact animals. They are just not mammals. As for what animal I could do without, I think the three-toed sloth. It doesn't really do that much for me.
