I'm an arachnophobe and thus I hate spiders with a burning passion. However there are some animals that I am scared of but actually still like:
-Sharks. They're one of the reasons I'm scared of swimming at the beach, yet they're one of my top 3 favorite animals(the other two being rabbits and of course cats). I especially love Great White sharks, and have a poster of one in my living room.
-Crocodiles. I wouldn't want to be anywhere near one since it would probably kill me if I got to close to it, yet I still like them. I've always had a soft spot for reptiles in general though.
-Dinosaurs. I've loved dinosaurs since I was a little kid, but we'd probably be screwed if they still existed. I've actually had a few nightmares about them coming back.
-Bears. If they weren't such formidable predators they would be so huggable and cuddly!
