According to a new survey by Public Policy Polling, these are the nine critters people are MOST afraid of:

1. 21% of people said that snakes are the scariest animal.

2. 19% were most afraid of alligators . . . but 6% of people said that they wanted one as a pet?

3. 18% said sharks were the scariest.

4. 14% were most afraid of bears.

5. 11% said cockroaches were scariest.

6. 9% were afraid of tigers . . . but 26% wanted one as a pet.

7. 5% were most afraid of bats.

8. 2% were most afraid of spiders. (Which is INSANE. Shouldn't spiders be in the top TWO?)

9. 1% said WOLVES were the scariest animal.
