I have always been amazed at how many folks have a phobias about snakes and spiders. When I was a kid I got bitten by a spider and a had a heck of a time getting rid of the poison that was in my system. I came away with a healthy respect for them, but still not afraid. I handled snakes from a young age (boy scout stuff) and was familiar with the few poisonous snakes in Florida and just stayed away from them. Still had no problem with them.
