Some of the animals we are most afraid of are animals like owls lurking in the night and snakes slithering along the ground and making that creepy sound with their tongues. Today, The Center for Wildlife Studies is hosting a presentation today that will hopefully curb those fears. This program entitled, “Are You Afraid of Wildlife?” will present these different animals and educate the public on the benefits of having these animals in the habitat. The organization hopes that better education of these animals will make people more accepting and less fearful as these fears can lead to the unnecessary killing of the animals. According to a Gallup poll, snakes top the list of things Americans fear the most. That means that ophidiophobia ranks at least 10% above public speaking, heights, airplanes, spiders, and being enclosed in small spaces.
