Is there any animal that, although it may not be perceived as being creepy, just creeps you out?

Asked by jca2 (8719points) 1 month ago

Are there any animals that you just find creepy, even though most people probably don’t? Birds, bunnies, what?

Crabs. Anything with an exoskeleton gives me the heebies, honestly. Beetles, shrimp, crabs, lobsters, those little potato bug things, centipedes… yuck. I guess some of those things are considered creepy, but people buy crabs as pets so I’m guessing those don’t count. Same concept to me though.

@ANef_is_Enuf Arthropods are the worst.

I sometimes find hummingbirds a little creepy because in some ways they resemble giant insects more than they do birds (with the way they fly and the noise they make).

Yes nasty huge Texas roaches are the worst!

I really don’t like the survival skill of eating insects. Putting pinching fat white tree grubs in my mouth creeps me out big time.

There is a frog whose flesh has the appearance of rotting flesh and the female lays her eggs in that flesh.

I’m not keen on anything that moves faster than myself. The older I get, the longer the list becomes.

Snake nests creep me out. I hate when I can’t tell where one snake ends and another begins.
Why do they congregate, anyway? They’re cold blooded so they aren’t sharing body heat….??

@Dutchess_lll @KNOWITALL I think we can all agree on the same thing…

I’d say large centipedes, although I think quite a few people do regard them as being creepy.

Otherwise, I’d say just about any hairless mammal, perhaps even humans.
