Whether it’s building bridges across rivers or solving puzzles, spiders are way cooler than you might think. Many have smart or elaborate features that allow them to do some pretty extraordinary things!

HIGHEST KNOWN PERMANENT RESIDENT ON EARTH!

I don't think a person without a true phobic reaction could possibly understand it, because while I can rationally understand their amazing abilities and their importance to our planet, I still shriek like a little girl with a skinned knee every single time they are close to me (let alone ON me, that is tear inducing). I try to educate myself on them so I can appreciate them more hoping to fear them less but to no avail. I DO appreciate them more but the fear is unabated. I even went so far as to buy my son the red knee tarantula he wanted and learned everything about it. I found a way to include it in the reptile presentations my husband and I used to do at local schools (we used to run a reptile rescue). But the fear still remains. Intense, crippling at times, and extremely unwanted. In fact, you can add centipedes in as well, honestly I don't really don't know which one is more terrifying. Small ones, large ones...it doesn't matter...just utterly horrifying. Phobias are NOT rational and they suck...
