Spiders are the scariest bugs in the world. Sometimes it's hard to believe something so tiny can be so scary, but that doesn't change how I feel about them. No matter what I will always find spiders to be scary. I have heard people shouldn't be afraid of them because they're smaller than people, well so are hand grenades but I'm still afraid of them. Spiders always sneak up on people and scare them like they get enjoyment out of it. Some spiders are even deadly so why shouldn't we fear them? Regardless of what some people say I think spiders are very creepy because they're hairy even though they do not seem like it, despite the size of a spider they are intimidating , and some of spiders are poisonous.
The first thing I find creepy about a spider is that they can be so hairy even though they are so small. I do not understand why I find this scary but I do. I do not imagine a spider to be hairy when I think of it I just imagine it to be tiny and black. Hairy spiders stand out from other spiders. When I see a hairy spider my heart skips a beat. Hairy spiders seem a lot scarier because you can see all their eyes and fangs much more clearly. They are like the monster in a horror movie, because no matter how fast you run they always catch up with you.
The second thing I find creepy about spiders is that despite their size they can be really intimidating. Spiders are generally smaller than a can of soda but that does not make them any less scary. If anything a spiders size makes them even more scary. When I see one of them crawl in my room with its eight legs it is one of the most frightening things that can happen. It seems like spiders always hide somewhere to scare people, like in their bed or shoes or directly above their bed. Spiders will always make their webs where they know people will walk by. It seems like they just plan to be an inconvenience to people.
